Convoy’s anthemic power pop bears the stamp of Brit-rock, Seaside Males harmonies, wistful Jayhawks twang, and feel-good jamming. The NORTH PARK, California, group surfaced in the past due ’90s when Jason Hill (vocalist/songwriter, acoustic guitar) and Brian Karscig (vocalist/songwriter, acoustic guitar) teamed up with senior high school close friends Robbie Dodds (acoustic guitar) and Tag Maigaard (drums). (Bass participant Shaun Cornell will be added later on.) For his or her debut launch, Pineapple Recording Classes, the music group relocated to some secluded, sprawling desert ranch in Jamul, California. They documented the effort with an analog eight-track reel-to-reel, generating and documenting it independently. Subsequently, Convoy thoroughly toured the U.S. A year or two on the highway led to the payoff of an archive deal with Cross Recordings (an Atlantic imprint), a nationwide Television appearance (in the Later Later Display with Craig Kilborn), and travels with people such as for example Aerosmith, Tom Petty, and Everclear. Because of their debut LP, 2002’s Dark Licorice, Convoy enlisted assistance from manufacturer Dave Bianco (Tom Petty).
