My music's aim is to transend age, race, and complement genres in an attempt to bring people together creating an open atmosphere filled with emotions and feelings. The music is created to communicate to the audience, while the audience influences the music direction creating the show.
I try to connect with the audience through indepth story telling, while the music helps with the description. In this atmosphere, the musical communication flourishes producing a Soul induced Acoustic Reggae style with a hint of a Bluegrass. There are elements of Hip Hop and R&B, with the occasion freestyle or three part harmony. The ecclectic nature of the music generates a style that is relatively untouched with the possibility for further musical growth.
This past year I have often played alone, creating an open and free canvas for my colorful musical epressions. However, I have recently begun to enjoy the company of an extremely talented group of people. With these individuals I have been able to form a solid musical bond. This band is not only filled with talented musicians, but more importantly good reliable individuals. I hope to continue to grow with these guys, as well as build new relationships.
Thanks to everyone, for it is your support from the very beginning has made this what it is today.
RIP Jonathan Shackley Raffetto- Musican, Mentor, and Friend
