Casey Walker of Cavo

cavoWith their first single “Champagne” off of their debut major label album “Bright Nights * Dark Days” Cavo has experienced some quick success, but getting to this point wasn’t an overnight affair for these guys.  The band, together almost nine years, was rocking the St. Louis music scene long before hitting the airwaves with ‘Champagne.”  None of it is taken for granted though, the band is relishing the moment and savoring each new opportunity that comes their way to share their music with the world.

The band went through a bit of a rebirth a few years ago when they lost one guitar player and bassist Brian Smith joined the band.  The loss of one member allowed guitarist Chris Hobbs to take the lead role and really shine and the addition of Smith took the band’s sound to a whole new level.  He gave them a shot of pure energy, a bit of new found aggression, and helped steer the band towards a more collaborative writing process where everyone is involved.

Currently rocking the second stage on the Crue Fest 2 tour the band jumped at the opportunity to get out there and reach out to new fans.  Once Crue Fest 2 wraps up Cavo will be hooking up with Sick Puppies and Shinedown on the road and then on to an arena tour with Daughtry.

Lead singer Casey Walker recently took some time to talk to TWRY about their debut album, how he’s been inspired by Eddie Vedder as a musician, and the band’s next single!
