Who are we?!

DWARF is an Alternative Punk rock band from Mesa Arizona, who has been making music since 2012. Lead singer and guitarist, Sage Donaldson met bassist and backup singer, Bailey Stewart in kindergarten and formed a fast friendship. In 2009 Sage and Bailey met Dom Crooks, drummer and began honing their musical skills in junior high band. In 2012, while in high school marching band, Sage, Bailey and Dom formed DWARF. This power trio began playing anywhere that would let them and gained fans immediately. In October of 2015 DWARF released their first album, “It’s About Time”, to rave reviews from YabYum, New Times and Singles from their debut album have been played on KWSS, KFMA, and international radio stations in Japan and Australia. DWARF’s guitar driven sound and a high energy stage performance has made DWARF a band to not be missed and sure to entertain.


DWARF recently played its last show for the summer, but the band did not go on hiatus without leaving us a parting gift. How thoughtful. That same day, they dropped a video for a brand new song called "Too Close To The Flame." DWARF is Bailey Stewart on bass, Sage Donaldson on guitar and lead vocals, and Dominic Crooks on drums. If you haven't seen them live before, I would highly recommend that you put this on your list of things to do when they return in the fall. You have never seen a band happier to perform in your life and in addition to that, Stewart is probably the most active, joyful bass player in all of local music history, not a hyperbole in any way shape or form. Everyone last Saturday was transfixed on his performance and had difficulty not watching him for their entire set. At five minutes long you think you might tire of a fast-paced indie rock song, but the thought will never occur to you once. You just want it to continue longer. The video is a dizzying visual collage of found footage that works perfectly with the pace of the tune and seems to emphasize Donaldson's flawless vocals that guide the entire thing.
