Biography

Florida, has enjoyed a long rock and roll tradition. From the time of Tom Petty that first put this college town on the rock and roll map, to the bands that are still holding true to the creativity, emotion and rebellion that are the milestones of Rock. Gainesville has played a complementary role in the on-going evolution of Rock. Now a Gainesville based rock band appears ready, willing, and more-than-able to add another chapter to their home town's history of rock.

As heard in their newest e.p., "Beauty through the eyes of the unseen.," Lead vocals/guitarist Joshua Reid Carswell, guitar/vocals Kevin Wilson, bassist/vocalist Brian Houchens and new found drummer Jeff Cowan have broken the chains holding Cloven Skies back in the stagnant pool of every day rock. Moving onward to fresher and more exciting things, taking with them influnces from bands past - combining and filtered them with the creativity and energy of Cloven Skies's own unique musical talent. The resulting musical blend is like a spark on gasoline, blending bold, melodic instrumentation, amazing vocal fury, and cutting-edge rock-n-roll mayhem into a wild fire consuming everything in its path. This is New Rock that stands above and beyond today's field of modern rock.

Formed in late 2006, it hasn't taken long for Cloven Skies to begin making its mark. First and most important, there are the songs. Each one stands as full-fledged rock and roll brilliance, where the band's influence and creativity all battle with one another for prominence. From first to last note, this new album shows the true, deep centered feelings that rest in the heart of what makes Cloven Skies. Hard without being overbearing, insightful without sounding preachy and bleak but at the same time positive, leaving the listener with the unmistakable feeling of shivers racing up and down their spine knowing that this has been a musical journey well worth taking.
