Caleb Travers & Big City Lights: Release Show for Blue Weathered Dreams

Posted By on Fri, Feb 8, 2008 at 7:47 AM

In this week's paper, Christian Schaeffer reviews Caleb Travers & Big City Lights' debut, Blue Weathered Dreams. He has this to say:

With a deep, sonorous voice and a satchel full of minor-key strums, Caleb Travers appeared on the singer-songwriter circuit about a year ago. Blue Weathered Dreams is his first album, and it achieves its goal of setting the stage for Travers' country-colored story-songs. These songs ache with the seriousness of a singer who sees darkness on every horizon, from the unbreakable bonds of family to the search for redemption.

To me, Travers' voice resembles Eddie Vedder at his most soulful (that's a good thing, trust me), while others compare him to Beck, ca. Sea Change. Judge for yourself at Travers' CD release show at Off Broadway this Saturday night at 9 p.m. (note the time), as he plays with Via Dove and the Feed.
