Young Talent, At Long Last, Launches First Single “San Francisco Dreams” Featuring Bassist Cole Verble
Young Talent, At Long Last, Launches First Single “San Francisco Dreams” Featuring Bassist Cole Verble… “Making music is our mission, performing is our passion and getting fans is our blessing.” Four Deer Creek high school students from Edmond, Oklahoma, Jordan Lindley (vocals & guitar), Caden Castelli (lead guitar), Carson Hawkins (drums) and Cole Verble (bass guitar) formed the band At Long Last five years ago at the ages of 11 & 12 in a school classroom.
“Four guys in a band and in the same class in school since we formed the band in 2008. It is now 2012 and we are writing our story right along with some of the most amazing songs you will ever hear! Our forte’ is our unique sound and songwriting ability. Jordan writes our songs with collaboration from all the guys on various tracks. We all write our own musical interpretations of our instruments to the songs. We hope you love the result. We have been compared to many different artists but in the end we are just 4 guys in a band going to high school and living the life you live too. You make our success possible and we love each and every one of you for it. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!”

Jordan started writing music at the age of ten. His songwriting has been described as “way beyond his years.” Caden has been honing his guitar skills since he was ten; and both Carson and Cole have been developing their musical talents since that same age.
Their band name, At Long Last, came from a Coldplay article in the Oklahoma Gazette. “Yeah, we were eating out one night, talking about coming up with a name for the band and Caden’s sister Madison was looking at The Gazette to get some ideas. Coldplay had cancelled their concert here in OKC months early and were finally returning. On the cover it read COLDPLAY, At Long Last! We thought wouldn’t it be great if our name was At Long Last? That would mean we were opening for Coldplay…obvious history”
Musical influences include Go Radio, All Time Low, Green Day and many many more. In the past few years, they have had the pleasure of opening 2 concerts for Interscope Recording Artist, Greyson Chance, most recently opening for him at The Coca-Cola Center in February of 2012. On April 21, 2012 they opened for the band Go Radio and most recently, they are opening for the band Allstar Weekend at Frontier City on June 2nd.

At Long Last won “Crowd Favorite” at the Battle of the Bands contest in 2011 and were also the VIP band at Extreme Pyrotechnics July 4th LibertyFest. In 2010 they were the Winner of the FENDER Music Contest for their local Guitar Center.
