Small Talks is an indie rock band from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina that was invited to play at the Vans Warped Tour this past year, and the band is made up of Cayley singing lead vocals and guitar, Justin on the drums, and Tyler as the bassist. “I was thinking about this question and how I would describe the experience, and you know you spend so long just trying to do things like that and get opportunities like that. And when you get to experience that it’s hard to wrap your head around it… It’s kind of like we were apart of something that was bigger than us, and my goal with Small Talks is trying to create something that is bigger than us. And it was kind of really cool to live inside of a world all surrounded by music…. It was amazing.” This is what it feels like when you play at an event that makes you feel like you made it… And just to think, they haven’t even made a second album yet!

Their success has recently come from winning “Skullcandy Stayloud Showdown“. Cayley thinks; “I guess we weren’t expecting everyone to be so accepting of us, and everyone was so accepting of us and it surprised us.” It sounds like someone will be probably invited back next year?…..

They began with Cayley, “I started writing poetry first, and then my friend introduced me to rock music. Which is the first time I heard something super emotional… So I just liked that they liked to express their emotions, and it was cool and catchy… It kinda just took off from there.” Justin says he admired her lyrics and joined as drummer. And then Tyler tagged along, I honestly don’t know how that happened though…

As far as the songwriting goes, “When I write I usually don’t really think about it, I don’t really listen to a band and get really crazy about them… I find myself hanging around and driving in the car with like no music playing, and I like to zone out and I’m just like in my head. And I feel like that’s weird cause I love music so much, but as like a listener, I never have like my own favorite songs and such that I write my songs about. So when I sit down to write, it’s really like raw… It’s from like whatever is going on in my head (or my emotions).
