In a sea of white noise and cookie-cutter popular music, it is refreshing to know that the band Ravello strives to make music for reasons other than a paycheck and fame. Brothers and St. Louis natives Justin (Vocals/Guitar) and Taylor DeRosa (Drums, Keys) formed Ravello in 2009 in Nashville, TN. The DeRosas had one goal in mind: to marry the honesty, attitudes, and nostalgic nature of their tenured influences with their own brand of modern rock. In 2010, Ravello began recording their first effort Asperatus EP. During these sessions Taylor Craft (Bass) joined the duo and added his flare to the sound of the band. The first installment of the Ravello catalog brought forth forward motion and jump started their career in Music City. The 2011 addition of Justin's childhood friend Chris Plank (Guitar) further shaped Ravello and molded the sound into what has been created through their forthcoming, full length LP.
"We are a team now. All of us with unique musical influences, beliefs, and stories to tell while all reaching for the same goals: to be honest to our listeners and ourselves and to take people to a different place even if just for a moment. People who knew our music before are definitely going to hear the difference" (Justin). Ravello continues to gain steam through the completion of their first full length LP recorded at Big Light Studio with producer Thomas Doeve and engineer Joshua Niles and over 30 performances across the U.S. all just four months into 2012 . As summer and festival season commence, be on the look out for singles, videos, and information surrounding the new LP as well as the chance to experience Ravello in a town near you.
TUNE IN AGAIN TOMORROW!
