What's The Story About Caveboy?
With a fresh perspective on alternative dream-pop, Caveboy root themselves in the primal and build to multi-layered experiences. Influenced by similar childhoods, Caveboy is the culmination of the shared life experiences of its three members Michelle Bensimon (Lead Vocals, Guitar, Synth), Isabelle Banos (Synth, Bass, Backing Vocals) and Lana Cooney (Drums, Backing Vocals). They revel in ideas of fearlessness, self -sufficiency, the extraordinary, and that which is feral and cannot be tamed.
Connecting through the pop music from their parents’ generation, the band works hard at developing their sound to utilize these respected musical elements while at the same time always trying to create new worlds of sound with their synthesizers, driving percussion, and symbolic lyricism interweaved with their Guitar/Bass/Drums core.
Their debut self-titled EP, released in the fall of 2015, charted among the National Top 25 on Earshot, and propelled the band onto the Canadian festival circuit including electrifying performances at Pride Toronto, Hillside, Rifflandia, and in their hometown, Osheaga. The band also turned heads by showcasing at festivals such as CMW, CMJ, SXSW, TIFF, and Pop Montreal. In early 2017, the band performed at SOCAN & CIMA’s Pre-Grammy Celebration of Canadian Excellence in Los Angeles, California, alongside Kaytranada and Donovan Woods. The music of the EP was placed in several television shows and films; with a number of tracks on Space’s Killjoys and Wynonna Earp, as well as songs in FXX’s You’re The Worst and MTV’s Awkward. Also, they had a B-side track from the EP “Color War” placed in the fourth season of Netflix’s Orange Is The New Black. The band has opened for touring artists such as Ria Mae, Scott Helman, Dear Rouge, Operators, Keys N Krates, Neon Dreams, Young Galaxy and more.
In May 2017, Caveboy placed first in the Recording Festival contest, landing them a two-week recording residency at the beautiful Grouse Lodge Studios (Michael Jackson, Muse) in the heart of Ireland, along with the help of renowned European engineers such as Cameron Craig (Adele, Annie Lennox). The rollout of this highly anticipated new music began with the first two singles, “Raconteur” and “New Touch,”both of which have charted on CBC Radio 3 Top 30 and Radio 2 Top 20, respectively.
In October 2017, the band was chosen as an official winner of the 2018 Allan Slaight Juno Master Class program, where they got to work with esteemed artists and mentors Gavin Brown, LIGHTS, Max Kerman of The Arkells, Kardinal Offishall, and many more.
