Traverser is a Progressive rock band formed in 2004. The band is known for their use of visual art, and conceptually oriented songs and lyrics. Their live performances often include samples of pre-recorded audio to imply a storyline or theme to the audience. The band wrote and performed as a trio until October 2009 when Jon Shaffer, former guitarist for 7 Blue Skies joined the band as a permanent second guitarist. Traverser has appeared at several major venues and events in central Florida including the 2009 Florida Music Festival [1] The band began touring in 2011 in support of the re-release of their self-titled debut.
