Valentina Raffaelli, voice songs and piano, leads the band. Born and raised in Tuscany (Italy) she has several tours of Europe and most of North America under her belt. Itʼs this experience level and her connection and understanding of the music on both continents that makes the music undeniably different and catchy.
On guitar is Lewin Barringer the seasoned pro. Lewin has played with people like Randy Travis, Blues Traveler,
G. Love & Special Sauce, Los Lobos, Nickel Creek, Yonder Mountain String band etc... Need I say more? Lewin also recorded most of the instruments on the EP.
Upright Bass provided by Philadelphiaʼs own Gordon Emma who was chosen to be the personal student of Jazz pioneer Tony Miceli. He lays it down thick and hard.
Drum roll please..... Melinda Gervasio. She toured Europe with Philly Big Band and is one of the most promising drummers in the current East Coast music scene.
