JAPHY RYDER creates raw, driving, instrumental rock, with an air-tight rhythm section, melodic rock guitar, and effects-laden trumpet. A tight-knit quartet of musicians living, working, and performing in Burlington, Vermont, Japhy Ryder have played nearly 300 shows over the past few years and have quickly become one of the Northeasts premier up and coming acts.
TIM COLLINS: With the release of his new album Fade, vibraphonist Tim Collins has found a way to meld raw grooves, lush arrangement, and haunting melody into a powerful unit. Critics and fans alike have hailed Tim as a world class vibes player (CJSR-FM), one of the best vibraphonists (KMVR-FM) an exciting player (All Music Guide) and nothing less than exemplary (Downbeat).
I wanted to make a record that would somehow reflect my love for Milt Jackson, The Police, and Bjork all at the same time, Collins says.
LEO GENOVESE: Born and raised in Venado Tuerto, Argentina, Leo had an early musical influence through his mother who played classical piano. It must be in the genes; Leo soon found himself behind the keys, studying classical piano at the National University of Rosario. It wouldn't be until 2001 when the native-Argentinian would make his way to Berklee College of Music in Boston, Mass. where he studied with Danilo Perez, Joanne Brackeen, Frank Carlberg and Ed Tomassi. Two years later, Genovese would graduate as a Professional Music Major and begin his career of performing, recording, writing and just about anything that involved music. Genovese's chromaticism-fueled compositions pull no punches. Eerie dissonant tones flirt with traditional jazz style creating something that only Genovese's mind could cook up. Sit back, stop thinking and enter into Genovese's world, where the music can truly speak for itself.
