About Caleb Travers

Quickly making a name for himself in the St. Louis singer/songwriter scene, Caleb Travers has become a regional favorite, sharing bills with Alt. Country heavy Bobby Bare Jr., Ha Ha Tonka and the Everybodyfields. He and his band earned the title Best Alt. Country Band of 2007 by the River Front Times before Blue Weathered Dreams, his debut self-release was even completed. The 28-year-old singer continues to create a buzz regionally, receiving heavy air-play and support from St. Louis’ KDHX, accolades from the Columbia Tribune and the St. Louis Beacon. Travers made the River Front Times “Best Of” list again in 2008 as Best Songwriter.

The songs of Blue Weathered Dreams go back to the singer’s origins. The tune “Annie”, which grounds the album, is based on his parents’ travels across the Southwest; Midwest as Pentacostal musicians. Sonically, the album walks a tight-rope between pristine, layered guitar work, genteel steel guitar played by Scott Swartz, Travers’ rising and falling vocal theatrics and pure rock ‘n’ roll revelry. With imaginative song-craft, Travers writes himself into the prayers, stories and dying wishes of lovers, killers and strangers, sometimes as a walk-on cameo or a sympathetic observer, and other times as the protagonist, singing with a grave and penitent delivery.
