Waiting For Monday is a melodic rock band formed by Los Angeles based singer Rudy Cardenas
and guitarist/vocalist August Zadra. Brought to the attention of Frontiers by Jeff Scott Soto, the label
moved quickly to sign them based on their decidedly modern approach to the chart topping melodies of
the likes of Journey, Styx and Foreigner.
Originally from Venezuela, Rudy Cardenas is an incredible vocal talent. His pipes carried him all the
way to the finals of American Idol and he has been heard on TV and movies ranging from ‘Family Guy’
to ‘Real Steel’. For five years, he was the power alto for the multi-award winning vocal group, M-pact,
who were named Vocal Group of the Year at the 2005 LA Music Awards. More recently, he was the
featured vocalist for a Gold-selling album by Hungarian rock band Mr. Zsolt.
August Zadra is best known for handling lead guitar and vocal duties in the solo band of iconic singer
Dennis DeYoung. Since the age of 15, guitar playing has been a passion that has taken him from
Fairbanks, Alaska to Hollywood, California, where he attended and graduated from the Guitar Institute
of Technology. He has been in the LA music scene for two decades and is often sought out as a
guitarist/vocalist collaborator for writing and recording projects.
