2018 Howl At The Moon Indie Music Festival Artist: Carverton
Carverton is an American Pop/Rock band currently residing in Nashville, Tennessee. Carverton was founded by Kyle Yorlets and Michael Curry in the summer of 2014; realizing that their unique sound would fit better in a different setting than central Pennsylvania, the boys set off for Nashville with a couple guitars and goofy grins. Since the 2016 addition of drummer Christian Ferguson and bassist/local tall man Sean Wykoski, Carverton have travelled the eastern half of the United States spreading the gospel of new-age Rock N Roll.
Carverton constantly blurs the lines between genres, which can be seen in their 2017 self-titled EP. In Substream Magazine's premier, Editor Jessica Klinner writes "If there’s not at least one chorus off the EP stuck in your head by the end of the first listen through, then you might need to get your hearing tested." The best way to sum up Carverton's debut EP is with this quote from singer Kyle Yorlets: “This EP to me is all about exploring the most complex and difficult parts of life: love, pain, acceptance. Let’s be honest, life is fucking confusing. It’s stressful enough just trying to figure out what the hell is going on, let alone figuring out how to deal with it. I don’t really know if there even is a way to figure it all out. What I’ve learned from the process of making this EP is to just relax and take it one step at a time and do what’s best for YOU, no matter what.”
Where else would you find soaring pop choruses, rap verses, guitar solos, and the occasional punky breakdown all in the same song? Music can be fun AND serious, which is exactly how Carverton operates. After seeing a Carverton show, the last thing that anyone will be is bored.
