Proudly southeastern without being Southern Rock, CARVER COMMODORE (Florence, AL) melds universal elements of indie pop and alternative rock with their own energy and charm. Origins are important and, much like The Killers Vegas-reflecting shimmer or The Strokes NYC punk-tinged pop, Carver Commodore is an active reflection and interaction with their hometown.

"The thing about Florence is that it’s this beautiful blend of people burned by life in bigger cities mixed with those who grew up here and see the beauty in it,’’ says frontman Payton Pruitt. “The musical history of Muscle Shoals combined with a low cost of living empowers a creative community that can afford to do what they want to do (whether in music, art, fashion, or food) in Florence as opposed to what they have to do just to afford rent in Nashville, Seattle, LA, NYC, etc.”

Formed by Pruitt and guitarist Phillip Blevins in late 2017, the band’s first single "Stars & Galaxies” bridged the gap from previous folk projects and put the band on the road, both figuratively and literally, to finding its sound. With some 80+ shows under its belt by the end of 2018, the band cut its forthcoming debut album at The Smoakstack in Nashville. The first two singles “Blind” and “Pathetic Again” released in April 2019, with “Black Plastic” coming in late Spring and the LP slated for September. Already on the road in support, the band has plenty of energy for sharing their new music and look forward to many more miles ahead.

"We’re a rock and roll band from the South. Proud to be from Alabama and call it home, but are privileged to see the rest of the world on a regular basis.”
