Biography

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.
