Streetlight Cadence is an alternative folk pop quartet. Jonathon (violin), Jesse (accordion), Brian (cello) and Ben (guitar, drums) began as street performers in 2010 in Honolulu, Hawaii, playing for tourists while earning grocery money as college students. The band had a strong desire to stand out from other music groups, thus Streetlight Cadence has always moved towards unique instrumentation and arrangements in their music. The group takes inspiration from and has been described as a cross between Mumford and Sons, The Lumineers and One Direction. In addition, the classical instruments, family-friendly brand and storytelling-songwriting style attracts older audiences, making Streetlight Cadence a group enjoyed by people of all ages. Jonathon, Jesse, Brian and Ben can be described as fun-loving, energetic and demonstrate an enormous love for music and friendship in their live performances.
After winning two successive Na Hoku Hanohano Awards for Alternative Album of the Year and a handful of Battle of the Band competitions, Streetlight Cadence decided it was time to leave Hawaii and head to the mainland to pursue more opportunities in music. Now based out of Los Angeles, Streetlight Cadence continues to thrive. With a five-album discography and their most recent album reaching #16 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart, Streetlight Cadence continues to win awards for their original music.
