"This unique California collective utilizes a forward-thinking philosophy and strong musicianship [with] an infectious beat and piercing vocals that will send you clamoring for a computer to find more sounds.”

Christopher Snyder and Michael Edwards are a creative duo that poses a dynamic ability to artfully craft and produce uniquely memorable songs. With over a decade of songwriting and performing experience, the two are currently developing their third album to be entitled "In Defense of Time."


As lead singer, Snyder drives this eclectic duo on rhythm guitar and keys. His well-thought-out lyrics have been quoted by Rolling Stone magazine as "forward-thinking" and "infectious" while Edwards’ guitar, bass, and arrangements have added to furthering their successes on stage and in the studio.

Snyder and Edwards' first collection of songs titled “Initial Contact“ topped college radio charts. This, along with growing attention from the public and the music industry, made way for the band to tour and support their first official album

Nezvanova” (nameless nobody). 

Since the release of “Hands On Display”, Standing in Waves has continued to focus on sharpening their performance and songwriting craft and in 2020 released a new single entitled "Kingdom Run Wild."

Today, Standing in Waves continues to create and perform throughout a variety of modern outlets. In addition, Christopher Snyder can be found co-hosting the television show “Travel With Didiayer." Michael Edwards has composed the theme song and additional music for the program.
