Surf Cavalier is an expandable two piece Rock/Indie/Surf Band. Their music has tight and intense male/female vocal harmonies sometimes with different complimentary melodies, dirty guitars and fluid rhythms. They began touring full time in May of 2018 under the name Sezessionville Road, but recently made the name change. They have played 65 shows in 2018, including many return dates. They plan an even fuller schedule for 2019. They have played notable music venues, multiple breweries, dives and festivals.

The duo are a dynamic song writing team and their affections range from full blown rock ‘n roll swagger to folky Americana. During the Fall of 2017, Surf Cavalier traveled to Genova, Italy, where they had the opportunity to stay and record 17 songs with drummer and producer, Federico Foglia. The results speak for themselves. This particular project focused more on their fetish for fearless rock combined with, at times, purple ambient melodies and blacklight folk. This winter they will be recording from a back log of hundreds of songs they have not been able to record as of yet due to being on the road.
