Carverton is an American Pop/Rock band currently residing in Nashville, Tennessee. Founded in the summer of 2014 by central Pennsylvanian boys, Kyle Yorlets (died February 7, 2019) and Michael Curry; they realized their unique sound would fit better in Nashville, so the two ventured off with a couple of guitars and songs in hand. While there, they met Christian Ferguson and Michael Wiebell to complete the band and formulate the missing pieces to their sound. Together they mix different-yet-similar musical tastes, with traces of Pop Punk, Indie Pop, Hip Hop, and Rock & Roll laced throughout their songs, and an unapologetically brutal undertone that sets the precedence of their music as both authentic and personal.
In 2017, Carverton launched with their self-titled EP, which blurred the lines between genres and gave the four-piece a poignant start to their career. Singer, Kyle Yorlets, expanded on the theme of the EP, by stating, “This EP to me is all about exploring the most complex and difficult parts of life: love, pain, acceptance.” The EP was produced by Danen Rector and engineered by Johnny Lutz and featured singles, “Hollywood” and “Pretty Little Monster” which became the theme song of the 2017 FIREFLY Festival recap video after their tumultuous debut performance in Dover, Delaware. This led to a performance at Doah Fest in Luray, Virgina and opening opportunities with artists: Icon for hire, Makeout, Set It Off, Boys of Fall, and Stages & Stereos. Substream Magazine editor, Jessica Klinner, had this to say about the EP, "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."
Entering 2018, Carverton were ecstatic to head in to the studio to record their debut full-length, Chasing Sounds, which is due out March 29, 2019, featuring singles, “Wildside” and “Misery.” Returning to work with Danen Rector, the band conceptualized 13 songs about following adventures through life’s trivial ups and downs. Each song is about pivotal points in one’s life, leaving the listener feeling welcomed and accepted to a community that appreciates personal growth during the hardest of times. Singer, Kyle Yorlets, expanded, “We hope our music can be both relatable and encouraging to those who need it. Life is crazy and unpredictable, and we want to portray that in our music.”
