Jonathan Cavier has always been a fan of Cheap Trick and their music has influenced his own in a variety of ways. One subtle page that Jonathan has taken out of the Cheap Trick book is the use of a twelve-string bass on his debut solo album Premier, which was released earlier this year. Tom Peterson, bassist for Cheap Trick, is well known for playing a twelve-string bass, and is even credited as the brainchild behind the instrument’s creation in 1977. As the second song in the Cavier Covers series, “The Flame” gives Cavier a unique chance to highlight this instrument that is so important to the sound of his original music.
Cavier has also recently released a performance video for his new studio song “Promise”, which appears on Premier. The video shows Jonathan in his studio, performing the song with his signature twelve-string acoustic guitar and keyboard setup. You can view the video along with vlogs from Jonathan about various topics on his YouTube channel.
