Hey, compadres. We're CLOUDLAND. First things first, we are four best friends that love making music together. We grew up in the town of Fayetteville, GA. If anyone knows anything about Fayetteville, it's that after about eight o'clock everything in town closes down. So, on a Friday night the only thing for us to do was to make rock and roll in someone's basement. After about a year of messing around with songwriting and original material, we sat down to talk about getting serious. We all came to the conclusion that if we were gonna take a shot at pursuing music seriously, we were gonna do it together. We now reisde in Athens, Georgia as of August 2018. The unique thing about this group is that with every member comes a different musical influence. Hogan (Guitar) loves Dean DeLeo of Stone Temple Pilots, Drake (Bass) is influenced by Green Day & Kings Of Leon, Karmen (Drums) frequently plays Paramore, and Zach (Guitar/Vocals) learns from Johnny Cash. We hope these vast and different musical influences contribute to a completely new sound for our fans. We assure you we aren't just another pop band looking for fame. We're just four guys pursuing a passion to create and perform the best music we can offer. We want our music to be for people, for all people. Whether you've got it all figured out or you're falling apart, we hope these songs speak to you. At the end of the day, we are just four hometown guys with a drive to make something special. After all, we're not being anyone if we're not being us.

Fever Beam formed in the summer heat of St. Petersburg, Florida, where they quickly became known for their charismatic and high energy live show. Featuring Kasey’s twangy guitar and powerhouse singing matched by Dane and Sam’s infectious rhythms and vocal harmonies, Fever Beam has developed a sound affectionately referred to as “cowpunk”. The band has opened for acts like Gary Clark, Jr., Dex Romweber, Sarah Shook & the Disarmers, Thelma and the Sleaze, Thunderpussy, and more, leading the Tampa Bay Times and Creative Loafing to consistently cite Fever Beam as one of the best new bands to come out of Tampa Bay.
Fever Beam is currently in production on their debut EP, recorded by Simon Palombi (Woolly Bushmen), and will be touring across North America in 2019.
