Wavorly drew its first creative breath as a pop punk assemblage of
college students from Tupelo, Mississippi called Freshmen 15. It wasn't
long, though, before vocalist Dave Stovall and bassist Matt Lott caught
a grander vision for what their music and purpose could be. A few years
of growth and evolution, some line-up changes and a couple hundred
shows later, Wavorly bursts onto the national scene with their Flicker
Records debut, Conquering The Fear of Flight,
a sprawling modern rock masterpiece that blends elements of
alternative, classic progressive rock, indie-rock and hard rock with
highly literate lyrics, a boldly imaginative use of strings and a
sublime sense of melody. In the league of other genre-stretching acts
like Muse, My Chemical Romance, Mae and Switchfoot, Wavorly rocks with
heart and mind intact.
Though the friends all entered school as fans of pop punk
bands like Blink 182 and Relient K, their musical influences
diversified significantly by the time they came out the other side. I
went in more of a rock/hardcore direction at one point, Lott explains.
Then Dave was getting more into atmospheric pop artists like
Coldplay. The guys connected with guitarist Seth Farmer who was a
long-time metalhead and drummer Jaime Hayes, a devotee of crazy
progressive music like Dream Theatre, according to Lott. When they
realized their road manager Ryan Coon, a big fan of Muse, could play
keyboards he was drafted as well.
Stovall, the product of a heavily music-oriented family,
started as an avid drummer at the age of five, before adding guitar
skills in high school and chorus and piano in college. He majored in
Music Education with an emphasis in percussion before embracing piano
as his main instrument. Because of majoring in music education,
Stovall says, I took a lot of Music Theory and listened to a lot of
classical music, and it definitely influenced my writing.
Lott, who was literally taught bass by Stovall, serves as the primary
lyricist for the band and as a multi-subject substitute teacher when he
is home. I like to make the lyrics easy to understand at first
glance, he admits. But then if you read through them and listen to
the whole song, I like the listener to figure out; 'Wait, I think he's
saying something deeper here.
Wavorly's uniqueness settles across the listener with the
first strains of their Rob Graves (RED) produced debut. Intricately
arranged and immediately accessible strings and classical piano
establish a darkly elegant waltz as the introduction to the album,
before devolving into a pounding wall of guitars and drums. Stovall's
powerful vocals ride across the top of the churning, but consistently
tuneful brew as he delivers lyrical images heavily colored by author
and teacher C.S. Lewis. In fact, Lewis' classic novel The Great Divorce,
served as an influence on several of the disc's songs, while his sense
of imagination and heart deeply shaped the melodic and stylistic
inspiration behind the band in general.
Lott enthusiastically admits to the overarching influence the Cambridge
Master had on the band and on this album. Two of the songs are
specifically based on The Great Divorce, he explains. They describe
the main character in this classic and the choice he is faced with to
stay in hell or go to heaven. The driving rocker Endless Day
directly quotes the book with the line a thin line of emerald green
stretched tight as a fiddle-string. Lott continues, It's about heaven
being this amazing wide open place, Lott shares. But the song 'Part
One' puts off a dismal, confused feeling representing his option to
stay in hell.
Lewis' words were also specifically influential on the disc's opening
cut Madmen, but his sense of imagination and scope even influenced
the arrangements, melodies and overall style of the disc. Stovall is
also their resident Lewis aficionado. I drew a lot of inspiration from
my emotional response to his books, he explains. As a result, we
found this rock / alternative sound with a sense of mystery and deep
Praise and Adore, the soaring and instantly memorable lead
single is not a worship song in the classic understanding of the term.
When I sat down to write it, Stovall recalls, I had no agenda. I
wasn't trying to write a song with the meaning it has. I was really
just trying to write a song from my heart to God. From the title
'Praise and Adore' and the way it's structured, it sounds like a praise
song; however, the main point is not about praising God. It's about how
people can go their whole lives without ever knowing true life and
having an abundance of it. Lott continues, It was originally titled
'Some Live Without it,' he adds. Sometimes we don't realize that a
lot of people exist outside of that bubble in a real world of hurt and
despair. We should be thankful and praise God that we have the
opportunity to live our lives with the hope that He has given us and
strive to help others see that hope.
Whether referring to the cascading melodies, the complex
musicality, the artfully beautiful lyrics or the thematic
orchestration, Wavorly is a richly layered musical experience that has
both immediate Wow factor and long-term staying power. But as rich as
the band's creative vision is, their heart is buried deep into the
belief that music can have a positive and life-changing effect on
people's lives in ways that really matter.
