"The Brock Press "Caught In Thought Building Local Support""

"Seven months has felt like seven years for us." says John Weaver proudly. And he has reason to be excited.
Weaver is the lead singer for Caught In Thought, a band who at their first proper show won Isaac's battle of the bands this year. Since then the band has secured residency at both the Double Olive in St.Catharines and at Stages Nightclub in Port Colborne. According to Weaver, the band started about seven months ago at party when all the furniture was pushed aside and the individual members just happened to pick up their instruments at once."We played six original songs that first night together and it just sort of took off from there" says Weaver "We had a connection that I think was fated to happen." There may, in fact, be some credibility to that theory. Since they began rehearsing last May, Caught in Thought have already written 30 original songs. When I talked to Weaver and Bassist Shawn Denis, influences including such venerable names as the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Led Zepplin and Dave Matthews Band were rhymed off. "Zepplin are like gods to me,' says Weaver, "I really admire them. I guess our sound is sort of an extension of that. Sort of a folk infused blues rock sound. We really like the Beatles from a pop standpoint We really like pop sensible melodies and try to incorporate them as much as possible. We see people singing along to our music at shows. They may have never heard the song before but by the third chorus they got it.".....

Feeling a bit camera shy


Caught in Thought hail from the small town of Port Colborne, Ontario. They were the winners of 2003 Brock University and Niagara College Battle of the Bands. In 2004 they released their Debut E.P which is currently rated 11 on St.Catharines 103.7 CFBU Top 30 charts. They were chosen to compete in 97.7htzfm 2004 Rock Search, and they played the main stage at Port Colborne's 2004 Canal Days as the opening act for Glass Tiger ("but stole the show").

The mood that is created when the four members of Caught in Thought pick up their instruments and take to the stage; is something up beat, refreshing, and passionate; these four extremely talented guys craft their own distinct bluesy, pop, rock groove that mends acoustic and electric tones with strong vocals and harmonies to form songs that are catchy but not cliché. They play not according to a particular genre but a genre particular to each unique song they write. In today’s music industry where the promotion of image takes precedent over the quality of the music, Caught in Thought doesn’t buy into trying to fit into a scene; they’d rather “let the music speak for its self.” And that’s exactly what they’ve been doing. Playing over 200 shows in the last year and a half, Caught in Thought has developed a large fan base or “family” as they would like to call them. With over thirty original songs and the musical arsenal to jam out a song for over 20 minutes Caught in Thought have gained local attention as a band that can “deliver the goods”.

Caught in Thought's distinct sound is 1/4 formed by Adam Bazinet's amazing guitar skills. His subtle but mesmerizing style has gained praise by even the most veteran guitar players. Shawn Dennis provides a bass style more adept to lead guitar but with the rhythmic flare to match Todd Burkell's progressive modern drumming that captures everything from rock to jazz, swing to country, reggae to ambiatic. And, John Weaver provides powerful lyricism with strong melodies. His unique vocal tone is anything but trendy with emphasis on clarity, honesty, and originality.
