CHRIS CACAVAS first rose to fame as a founding member of Green on Red, who were allied to the fabled Paisley Underground movement of 1980s Californian indie rock. In the band, his characteristic frenetic, quivering organ sound – coupled with Dan Stuart’s and Chuck Prophet’s driving, jangling guitars – provided one of the defining features of the seminal first GOR albums.
Following his time in Green on Red, Chris embarked on a highly productive and acclaimed solo career, either on his own or with his backing band Junkyard Love. He produced a string of superb albums, including ‘Pale Blonde Hell’, ‘Self Taut’ and ‘Love’s Been Discontinued’. His Americana-tinged folk-rock songs, delivered with naked emotion and honesty, have garnered favourable comparisons to Neil Young (and indeed he appeared on a Neil Young tribute album in the late ‘90s).
He has since toured & recorded with Giant Sand and The Dream Syndicate, before re-focusing on his solo work in the last few years, culminating in his well-received 2020 album ‘Burn The Maps’, which he recorded and produced from home during the pandemic.
