Traverser opens the floodgates of creative, intense and contemplative progressive/alternative rock on unsuspecting audiences at every performance. Formed in 2004 by David Medairos (guitars/vocals), Robert Spence (bass guitar) and David Shaw (drums), three friends imagined a style of music that carried true and honest weight both in concept and execution. Invoking influences ranging from classical music, metal and jazz, to progressive and experimental rock, they craft a patchwork of emotions and moods into a sprawling landscape of thought provoking music. Songs demand the listener to pay attention from beginning to end, as they often twist off in unexpected directions or odd/even meter shifts mid-song. Vocals imply apocalyptic visions, introverted self analysis and an almost alien perspective of what it means to be human, or to exist at all.Read More...
Since its inception, Traverser has consistently and relentlessly gained the respect of concert goers and fellow musicians in Central Florida, challenging audiences with engaging live performances and creative presentation. Traverser has been featured at WJRR's Earthday Birthday, Florida Music Festival, Hard Rock Live, House Of Blues, and several special events for EA Games Tiburon video game design studio.
In late 2009 Traverser announced the addition of former 7 Blue Skies guitarist Jon Shaffer as a permanent member of the band. Now as a four piece project, expectations are high, and Traverser has every intent to deliver.
Crushing and epic at one moment, eerily sweet and liquid the next, Traverser stands poised to prove that thoughtful people will support and understand thoughtful music, and that current musical trends and formulas stand only to be disassembled.
