Island of Black and White

Today we’re joined by El Dorado rock band, Island of Black and White. Originally formed in 2005, the group started as an acoustic duo led by songwriter Chris Haislet. Over time the band began to add more members, including percussionist and band manager Nawal Haislet, who Chris credits for taking the group to the next level as career musicians. For the last ten years Island of Black and White has been actively traveling across the country to perform their versatile blend of blues, rock, reggae and Americana music. We talk with the band about their approach to songwriting, and hear an in-studio performance of their song "West Edge".
