Formed in early 2018 on the outskirts of Los Angeles, Calmgrovehas emerged onto the scene with a well-honed balance of alternative rock, pop-punk and emo, delivering with an assured cohesion, grit and honesty.

Nods to Southern California pop-punk of yesteryear, with the execution of their more angst-laden contemporaries, Calmgrove has worked hard playing shows across California, earning a reputation as a regional workhorse in the process.
