    Wavorly drew its first creative breath as a pop punk assemblage of college students from Tupelo, Mississippi called Freshmen 15. Formed in 2001, they independently released two albums under this name.

    It wasn't long, though, before vocalist Dave Stovall and bassist Matt Lott caught a grander vision for what their music and purpose could be. A few years of growth and evolution, some line-up changes and a couple hundred shows later, Wavorly burst onto the national scene in 2007 with their major label debut, Conquering The Fear Of Flight. The album featured lyrics significantly influenced by the writings of C. S. Lewis.

    Wavorly changed its name from Freshmen 15 because they "didn't want to be thirty years old and be like, 'I'm in Freshmen 15. I have three kids.'" The name Wavorly comes from a haunted mansion in West Point, Mississippi.

    Stovall, the product of a heavily music-oriented family, started as an avid drummer at the age of five, before adding guitar skills in high school and chorus and piano in college. He majored in Music Education with an emphasis in percussion before embracing piano as his main instrument. "Because of majoring in music education," Stovall says, "I took a lot of Music Theory and listened to a lot of classical music, and it definitely influenced my writing."

    Lott, who was literally taught bass by Stovall, served as the primary lyricist for the band. "I like to make the lyrics easy to understand at first glance," he admits. "But then if you read through them and listen to the whole song, I like the listener to figure out; 'Wait, I think he's saying something deeper here."

    Wavorly followed up Conquering The Fear Of Flight with an independent EP entitled The EP in 2011 before disbanding in late 2012. In 2013, they released Something Like Fiction, a 22-song collection of b-sides and demos.

    awesome!!! | Posted December 17, 2008
    This is such a sweet band, I just wish they would come out with a second album soon. I really like how they put in the instrumental tracks that was a defining touch. they got good rock songs and "Praise and Adore" is a really good praise and worship song. altogether a really great band!
