Nashville’s Carverton was struck with a devastating tragedy when they lost their vocalist unexpectedly this month. Killed during a violent crime, Kyle Yorlets left behind a team of loyal friends and musicians, a dedicated fan base, and a legacy of hard work and good music.
To honor their friend Carverton has announced the release of their full length album, Chasing Sounds. Originally scheduled for March 29th, the album is available for purchase now—but the price is up to you. Chasing Sounds is on Bandcamp as part of a pay what you want scale. 50% of donations will go towards a scholarship and foundation in Kyle’s name.

Hello friends, family and fans of Carverton,
On February 7th, 2019, we lost the spirit and soul of our band, Kyle Yorlets. Although he may be gone, he will live in our hearts forever. Today, we wanted to share our full-length record that we have been working on for the past year. It was a dream for Kyle to have his art shared with the world, and we wanted to honor his legacy by giving everyone a chance to listen and own the record we have worked so hard on for all these months.
‘Chasing Sounds’ is an album that has demanded all of our blood, sweat, and tears. We know the only true satisfaction we could ever get from this is if you all love it as much as we loved making it. We’ve been eagerly waiting to release this, and despite the circumstances that we have been up against, we can’t wait for you all to hear what we and Kyle have been working on this past year.
The record will tap into emotions one experiences while both in and out of love, while feeling helpless, on top of the world, or simply not caring about anything at all. The themes and lyrics expressed throughout are inviting, but might leave you feeling exposed. We ask you to take a moment to celebrate these tracks, to celebrate the love and dedication Kyle placed within these songs for the people he loved both near and far.
We have decided that before releasing this record on Spotify, Apple Music and the streaming & download world, that we will make this record free for everyone to download with the ability to pay what you want for the record. 50% of all donations will go towards setting up a Scholarship & Foundation in Kyle’s name. We know that Kyle will be chasing sounds forever, and we hope that you will join him and us in that journey.
Michael Curry, Christian Ferguson and Michael Wiebell
