MichaelKalelWittigsmall.jpgLongtime bassist for Grammy nominated and Dove Award winning hard rock band Pillar, Michael “Kalel” Wittig recently announced that he will leave the group to pursue other opportunities.
In addition to spending more time with family, Wittig plans to focus his energies on JMA Music, a management/marketing/consulting company he developed with partner Joey Avalos in 2007. JMA Music’s current clients include emerging bands One Minute Halo and A Road Less Traveled.
He’ll also continue performing, with Stars Go Dim, the band he created with former Pillar drummer Lester Estelle. The band also includes Joey Avalos (Justifide, Sky Harbor) and Chris Cleveland, and with a pop/rock sound is a significant departure from the Pillar sound. The group will release its debut EP October 21, 2008 in advance of a full-length project, Love Gone Mad, produced by Estelle, scheduled for next year.
Wittig told his Facebook and MySpace fans, “It’s been an amazing 10 years of my life that I will never forget …There are many reasons why, but it is just the right time …I feel very blessed to have had the opportunity to be a part of something that has changed so many lives.”
