Ryan Caraveo with Cam Meekins

March 4, 2018 - 8:00pm

On Sunday, March 4, the Community Center for the Performing Arts and University of Oregon Campus Radio 88.1 FM KWVA proudly welcome Ryan Caraveo to the WOW Hall along with special guest Cam Meekins.

One of Seattle’s fastest rising hip-hop acts, Ryan Caraveo, is set to embark on his first nationwide headlining tour in support of his newest album, At Least I Tried.  The tour will see 28 cities, beginning in his hometown of Seattle at the Neptune Theater, and traversing from coast to coast.

The new album and tour follow up on a highly successful two-year stretch highlighted by performances at Sasquatch and on the main stage of the iconic Bumbershoot Festival.  Additionally, Ryan has amassed nearly 50 million total streams and 700k Monthly Listeners on Spotify.  With a rapidly growing fan base, Ryan is excited to finally set out on the nationwide tour.

At Least I Tried offers the listener a melodic trip inside of Ryan’s emotional ups and downs. Backed entirely by the production of Teal Douville, Ryan takes his biggest step outside traditional genre boxes to offer an experience that is becoming signature to his name.

Caraveo made his first appearance in 2014 looking clean-cut, while his music was anything but that.  His debut album Swings gave listeners a taste of triumph, loss, heartbreak and his battles with inner demons.  The album’s most popular song, “Paradise”, is an uneasy ode to the escape drugs provide and has since been streamed over 20 million times since release.

In 2016, the Seattle-born artist sold out several of the largest local venues, performed at Sasquatch and Bumbershoot Festival, and released another full-length album, Maybe They Were Wrong, which further displayed his preference for happy melodies paired with gloomy thoughts.

Kaltbult. Magazine reports that, “Seattle-born Ryan Caraveo just released his music video for ‘In My Own Skin’, fresh off the heels of Sundance Film Festival accepted short film, Pumpkin Pie.  The emotional clip captures Ryan’s inner turmoil with how it feels to be caught in between worlds, exploring the identity crisis he experiences as someone who is Mexican and White, but who cannot speak Spanish and ultimately feel disconnected to that part of himself due to his family’s cultural suppression.”

Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 day of show.  Doors open at 7:00 pm and showtime is 8:00.
