"We didn't search out this sound, this sound found us." CARAVAN GO's first official EP -- Moving Still... -- is a Red Dirt, Rock N Roll hybrid by serendipitous design.
"Our singer had no voice." In December 2009, Matt Bayuk (guitar player, chief song-writer and lead vocalist) was diagnosed with muscle tension dysphonia, a voice disorder that causes the vocal folds to involuntarily slam together. For the average person, this condition makes carrying a conversation difficult at best. For a singer, this condition often means the end of a career.
Determined to continue, even if it meant stepping out of the spotlight, Bayuk enlisted an unlikely recruit to take the reigns as the band's new frontman -- Country-slingin', Corey Vanderhoof. Though Vanderhoof's voice is pure Texas country, his vocal prowess quickly came to reinvigorate and redefine a self-described, "alterna-rock band" into something much more, and the wheels of CARAVAN GO began to turn.
Moving Still... blankets the musical topography with hooks and harmonies, weaving indelible tales of love, loss, and ultimately, redemption. From the arpeggiated acoustic intensity of "Sow Crates" to the sweet and dirty swing of "Stay", CARAVAN GO stake their claim as Real Texas Rock.
