Biography

The Shout Aways were formed in Midland, MI during the summer of 2009 by Caleb Knight, Philip Beard, Andy Beaudoin, Wes Walker, and Nick Kivi. Coming from different backgrounds and different musical influences, the band combined to form a sound that lies somewhere between the joyful melodies of Vampire Weekend and the soulful feel of Band of Horses; a sound that is truly their own. The band made its first few appearances playing outside of a local Starbucks, trying to raise money to send vocalist Caleb off to study Theatre at Interlochen Arts Academy boarding school for his senior year. These attempts proved succesful, and as Andy and Wes left for college, the band seemed to have come to a temporary stop. As they parted ways, all of the members agreed that they would do what they could to continue writing music and playing shows, now that they had finally found the musical connection they had all been looking for. But, after playing a few more concerts together over breaks, the band decided that they were not content to just play shows every few months, and Caleb decided to return to Midland for his final semester. The band is constantly writing new muisc and has shows lined up at multiple places, including the largely recognized venue, The Crofoot, in Detroit.
