Phoenix-based singer-songwriter and pop performer Jonathan Cavier is no stranger to writing catchy tunes that blend wide-ranging influences into a multi-faceted yet cohesive sound.
Originally from Northern California, Cavier (“cav-AIR”) moved to Phoenix, AZ where he performed as Alan Clark in the atmospheric pop duo, EyeTalk. Over the course of 10 years and five albums, this venture saw their music reach international audiences in Italy, the UK, and Australia. After five albums and hundreds of shows played throughout the US, Alan Clark reintroduces himself under the pseudonym Jonathan Cavier. Cavier re-forms his musical identity on his debut solo album, Premier. In addition to his musical endeavors, Cavier is a semi-professional tennis player and a member of the USTA and IFT. Cavier says practicing and playing in tournaments is “the fountain of youth.”
His first single, “January” is set for release in April 2016, and was produced by Jonathan Cavier and mixed by Cavier and Jason Lossett. Cavier blends influences from Duran Duran to Taylor Swift on his upcoming album, Premier. Tackling themes such as rebirth and renewal, “January” features Cavier’s signature blend of acoustic guitars, twelve-string basses, and atmospheric keyboards all supporting Cavier’s expressive vocals. The video for “January” was filmed in Northern California and was produced by Dave Lepori.
Cavier creates a sound of his own on his debut album, Premier, as he merges his new pop and rock influences from his early influences of the 80’s. Taking elements from a wide range of sounds, Cavier hopes to “transport listeners to colorful three-minute worlds,” through his careful composition and thoughtful lyrics.
