Citadel® - Since 1979 - Indie from the start, indie from the heart!
It never even used to be a commonly used word. In fact, it was often used derogatorily...indie. That word used in identifying ‘self publication’ of a musical group, underground rag, filmmaker, theatre troupe, etc. Citadel® has been ‘INDIE’ from the start (1979), before it was the edgy, cool, artistic purist thing to be – there seemed no other way for Citadel® to escape the binding genre restrictions and sales pressures of commercial music homogenization. “Art for art’s sake” pioneers in sound, video and a nexus for festivals featuring music outside the boundaries (Progfest, etc.), they are 28+ years strong, and ever evolving under the family owned name - Citadel®. See and hear for yourself, the Citadel® Whitmans in whatever generation or incarnation of the band, are the ultimate indie, genre-busting folk rock prog metal symphonic art concept performing and recording band! Citadel® is a registered tradename.
