cahaba bad astronautForming in mid 2014, Cahaba started as a three piece blues rock band. The lineup consisted of Oliver Stansell on guitar/vocals, Ryan Brown on bass, and Austin Jones on drums. The trio quickly recorded a single entitled "Hindu Cows" which was released at the end of Summer 2014. The single was included on the band's four track EP, "The Pale Whale," which was released in January of 2015.

The band played throughout Alabama and was featured on local radio in Birmingham and Huntsville over the next several months, before going back to the studio to record their second EP, "Odd Times." The EP took a turn from the blues rock oriented sound of "The Pale Whale" and shifted to a more jazz/blues fusion sound. Since the release of "Odd Times," Cahaba have considered themselves to be a "blues fusion" band. Shortly after the release of Odd Times, Cahaba added a fourth member, Kyle Weems on keyboards and additional instrumentation, to the lineup. With a new sound blossoming, Jones decided to step down from his position as drummer, citing musical differences and a desire to focus on his photography/videography company, Grow Visuals.

Cahaba found their new drummer in Petar Arabov. Since Arabov joined, Cahaba began writing more songs for a full length debut. Cahaba hit the studio at the end of 2016 and beginning of 2017 to record their first full length. The album was recorded and mixed by Andy Jackson at The Jackalope Studio. The album, called "Bad Astronaut," was released on March 31st, 2017. Shortly after the release of "Bad Astronaut," Petar Arabov decided to leave the band. Cahaba found new drummer Colton Faulkner and is currently playing shows to promote "Bad Astronaut."
