Taking a love of early indie music and a passion for technology, the Dallas band Caterpillars blend the digital and analog worlds to create refreshing melodies with energetic rhythm. Whether it's the arpeggiated guitars, driving bass and drums, or the passionate lead vocals (Christopher Robinson), Caterpillars believes in enhancing the soundscape with a digital feel.

Born from this desire, Robinson, along with Drew Black, Carson Brooks, and Ben Love, went to work writing and recording their first full length album, The Other Side. Once again working with legendary producer/engineer Ed Rose (The Appleseed Cast, The Get Up Kids, Coalesce) Caterpillars used their multi instrumental tendencies to create a fantastic follow up to the well received self titled EP. Combining acoustic and digital drums with melodic guitars and sweeping synths, Caterpillars created a range of dynamic tracks that blend perfectly as a whole.

Caterpillars thrive on recreating the full and complex sound of their album in their live shows. Utilizing multiple computers, pedals, and instruments, the venue is filled with each and every intricacy the album presents. Poised to make a mark on the bourgeoning Dallas music scene, Caterpillars have proven they are here to stay.
The Canvas People
The Canvas People
Infusing elements of lucid, indie space rock and harmony-driven alt-rock, Canvas People
produces a distinctly unique brand of new age music. Reminiscent of contemporary acts such
as Kings Of Leon, Death Cab For Cutie, and My Morning Jacket, Canvas People creates an
enchanting blend of booming 3 part harmonies and shaded, seductive indie rock grooves.
Based out of Austin, TX, the 4-piece rock group is a spot-on representation of the quality original
music coming out of the “live music capitol of the world”. Their upcoming record City Boy Slump
perfectly captures this young band’s ability to channel classic, sophisticated musical ideas, and
mold them into entrancingly captivating modern rock songs. Lead single, “Astronaut”, takes
listeners on a journey through pulsating drum grooves and melancholic, syncopated guitar riffs,
while laid back chiller “Parking Lot” incites memories of the nostalgic indie rock era of the late
Lead singer, Kyle Taylor, commented on the group’s progression since their release of "Sirens"
in 2014: “At its conception, Canvas People was a deliberate effort to push our music into the
experimental folk genre, but as we’ve progressed and as the new EP indicates, we’ve returned
to our indie rock roots, with a greater emphasis on group composition and energetic rock
Joining Taylor is Wes Maxwell on lead guitar/backing vocals, Luke Williams on bass/backing
vocals, and Pat Epley on drums. Williams and Maxwell’s harmonies coupled with Epley’s
tasteful drumming provide the perfect back drop to lead singer Kyle Taylor’s superbly crafted
Canvas People will be hitting the road later this year in support of their new release, City Boy
Slump. Stay tuned to see where these guys go; definitely an act worth watching.
