Interview: Izzie’s Caravan Shares Insights on His musical Journey



Interview: Izzie's Caravan Shares Insights on His musical Journey

After Izzie’s Caravan’s exceptional single was released, we caught up with an insightful interview with such a talented artist to explore his eidetic experience and what he had to say about his incredible musical journey so far. Read below to learn some interesting details about Izzie’s Caravan.

Discovering your own musical style is a unique part of every artist’s journey. What sets your music apart? What is unique, or at least uncommon?

Hi there. Thank you for having me here. Honestly, from the inception of this project, I knew our backs were always going to be against the wall with how we approach music and what we create in this current musical climate. I tend to be very traditionalist in the sense that rock n’ roll and the blues were grounded in reality and there was a certain sense of integrity about it where the entire song, the entire album, the entire process of it was the life-blood of the band…not some tik-tok clip that goes viral. Currently, we’re in a world where ‘entertainers’ are substituting music as an art form for the commercialized gimmick that needs to be sold and I’ve never bought into that mentality nor will I ever do so. I can’t subscribe to these pseudo-intellectual postmodern narratives that we’re held hostage by. To me I’d rather have a 100 people genuinely appreciate the music I make rather than having a million superficial ‘views’ or ‘likes’. I mean that sincerely. And the fact that record companies do their ‘head-hunting’ based on algorithms is in my estimation bloody lazy. Most of our songs hit the 5-minute mark with ease, including some of the ballads, that we’ve done, and I don’t really care whether thats not the acceptable standard. In ‘Blow The Lid’ we have an 18-minute song…yeah, that’s right…18-minutes, called ‘Curse of Anastasia’ and frankly speaking if that’s how long it takes to capture the spirit of the song then that’s what we’ll do.

“Return To Midway” is captivating from the start to finish with a combination of unique beats and catchy lyrics. What was the inspiration behind the single?

Yeah this track in particular means a lot to me personally. We’ve actually had this song in the catalogue since 2006 but decided to bring it back in revamped version and associate it very proudly with the #restorethesnyderverse movement. Being a childhood DC fan, growing up with these iconic characters, and seeing them come to life on the screen with Zack Snyder’s Justice League was a surreal experience. At a more political level, whats more important to me is the preservation of artistic integrity and the vision of the artist should stand above corporate hijacking.

What draws you to your preferred genre?

To me personally, the blues is a life-form. It’s organic story-telling which is built around human stories. It captures a certain moment in time grounded in reality and it’s so profound that it immerses and envelopes you. Usually when I’m writing, I start listening to records that stimulate me and this last week or so, as we’re neck deep in recording our upcoming album ‘Blow The Lid’, I was listening to Johnny Winter and Rory Gallagher and listening to these records is such a magical experience. And what really pulls me in is their humility considering they were masters of their art form. So yeah, blues and rock n’ roll has always been an integral part of my life.

Which one of your songs has the most memorable story for you? Whether it’s the writing process, recording sessions or release of the song.

At this point of time, due to what I’ll call the proximity effect, it has to ‘Return To Midway’. In all honesty, this song was purely by chance. As I mentioned, this song is something Sim (vocals) and I had recorded way back in 2006 and I was in the studio recently and by chance started playing this song over a different back-beat with a different rhythm pattern. It just happened to be one of those serendipitous euphonic moments in the studio and when I heard the playback, I knew right way I was on to something. All in all, it literally took a day to record and now it’s out as a single.

How do you go about writing a song? Do you have a melody in your head and then write the other music for it?

More often than not, I’ll have a melody and it all starts building from there. Sometimes the riffs pop out during practice or just jamming and if it sticks in my head over a considerable period of time, I realize that there must be some validity to it. I really like to write about issues and events grounded in real human stories and events so I draw upon events from the news or current affairs and then give my take on it.

What would your autobiography be called?

‘My Life: A Cosmic Joke’

For our final question, is there anything else you would like to add?

Yeah, we’d like to thank all those who have appreciated our music and allowed us to fulfill our dreams and passion of playing old-school rock and blues. We’re really, really excited about our upcoming album ‘Blow The Lid’ which is set for a release on June 15th, and listeners can preview some of the tracks from this album on Spotify which have been released early. Thank you so much and we’d like to welcome you to join our journey at This entire endeavor wouldn’t be anything without the support we get from our listeners.

Aaron Night Through it all

Ever since he was young, Aaron Night knew that his passion lay in music and performed to anyone in his family who cared to listen including his not so impressed younger brothers but his mom always noticed and decided to nurture his talent by supporting and guiding him, including playing the guitar beside him during those family gatherings as Aaron sang his heart and soul out with voracious passion and showcased genuine love for music which seemed to flow through him like some electric current. Fast forward to the now recording artist going professionally by the name “Aaron Night” who decided to get into music full time by first taking time to learn from the best and gain some experience.

Aaron Night finds himself shattering the noise with his most recent string of releases. Debuting in 2021, “Flares”, penned by famed songwriter Ryan Tedder, quickly climbed Music Week’s UK Pop Charts Top #10 in no time while simultaneously hitting #11 in Germany’s Dance Charts. Topping out big names like Zara Larsson and Jason Derulo, Aaron has begun carving out his mark in the international market.

From this release “Through it all” you’ll get to experience an artist with limitless potential and you wouldn’t be able to differentiate this track from what you have been listening to on the radio. It is equally as magnificent and absorbing if not more! This song was inspired by a genuine narrative about his own experiences throughout the pandemic and how he eventually overcome his anxieties and energy-sucking monsters!

“Through it All” has a colorful melody with elegantly textured instruments starting with the acoustic guitar riffs that engage in a call and response motif with his mellifluous male vocals touching on every chord of the human heart. The gist of this track is found where the exuberant and rock-like percussion culminates a jamboree feel but also delivering a gloriously anthemic chorus that is catchy, melodious, and easily memorable.

Many of the modern arrangement and production techniques associated with the alternative pop and rock genre are here and are handled exceptionally well, from the energy building rises to the well-layered guitars bass sounds and the melodiously filtered rhythm to the heartwarming vocals that drive the track qualifying it as a radio-ready and radio-friendly tune that will undoubtedly appeal to the modern audiences.

He has started on a high note and things can only get better from here – “Through it all” is that track we did not know we needed and yet we do especially during these times where all sorts of atrocities are ganging up to try and weigh us down. Without further ado, let’s put our hands together for Aaron Night!
