Independent Projects[edit]

From the early to mid-2010s, Kaluza was the lead singer, guitarist, and writer for his band SquirrelEXplosion, the name referencing the copious number of squirrels that would hang around his backyard. In 2019, Kaluza began working with film/TV composer Taylor Uhler, eventually creating their own band called Squeakie Toys, as a reference to the chew toys that their dogs would often tear apart.
