There is something about an acoustic guitar and vocals, which to my mind it is one of the purest forms of music there is, with no room for anyone to hide. When combined with good material and strong production it can be an incredibly powerful emotional experience, and that is certainly what we have here.This EP is essential. 5 Stars.” - muzic.net.nz

Biography

With passionate acoustic guitar driven songs and evocative storytelling, New Zealand’s Ravenhall speaks directly to listener’s hearts. By embracing an experimental electronic edge, they push the boundaries of traditional singer/ songwriter music to create a sound that is wholly authentic and unique.

Founding members Joe Ravenhall & Chris Brebner are both veterans of Auckland’s music scene, with several years of history collaborating on a variety of projects. With Ravenhall they sought to embrace the emotional lyricism and open hearted melodies that drew them to music in the first place. After writing over a hundred songs together, they recruited Damian Hilt on drums and Alan Treanor on the bass, each one bringing their own dynamic personality to fill out the band’s sound.

After spending many years performing together across New Zealand, Ravenhall made their official debut in 2015 with the release of their single ‘Everything To Me.’ From there they went on to release a series of singles expanding on their signature sound while continuing to build an audience in their home country. The band has just emerged from Parachute Studios with their exciting new EP 'The Coming Storm' which will reintroduce their intricately crafted songwriting to new listeners in New Zealand and beyond.
