Artist Biography by

Gloomy and darkly melodic, Caledonia was a promising but obscure goth-rock/alternative rock band that was active in New York in the late 1990s. Caledonia started playing the Manhattan club scene in 1996, when the half-female, half-male quartet outfit consisted of lead singer Mikaela Pearson, guitarist Scott Varol, bassist Kit E. Hawke and drummer Robert Lacyk. The band's debut album, Spires, came out on Clocwyse in 1998, and one got the impression that Caledonia could have become a big name in goth with the right exposure. But regrettably, Spires would be its only album--internal disagreements led to Caledonia's breakup in 1999.
