MUSIC LISTENING - "Electric Blue Dandelion Nashville Sessions
An Insider's Look of our latest album - Get to know Laurie & Dennis
The Rave is Raveis Kole
Armor piercing lyrics that float like a butterfly and sting like a bee! Raveis’ caramel smooth, emotive vocals and percussive, groove driven acoustic guitar rhythms meld with Kole’s fingerstyle and harmonic electric guitar explorations to interject world music influences into original, contemporary Americana/Folk songs that playfully invite you to listen with your head and your heart.
“Beautiful melodies ... powerful vocals ... creating soulful and heartfelt music. ”
— Guitar Girl Magazine
“What is absolutely certain, however, is at the moment when Laurie Raveis and Dennis Kole first met, a synergy was born that would blossom into one of the most talented singer/songwriter duos around today. ”
- KC Cafe Radio
Expect the unexpected! Armor piercing lyrics that float like a butterfly and sting like a bee! A cultural cross-pollination mixing Southern California freedom, Middle Eastern mystery, European panache, with a gypsy's adventurous spirit embedded within a matrix of Americana instrumentation and a homage to the unprocessed purity of the great singer/songwriters.
From their home in Bellingham Washington, Laurie Raveis and Dennis Kole create and perform music that is inspired and nurtured by the ocean and honed by the mountains of the Pacific Northwest. Their proximity to Seattle, Portland, and Vancouver Canada, adds an alternative and multicultural dimension and willingness to experiment as they create Art in Music featuring caramel smooth vocals and original songs that turn left in a right handed world.
Laurie Raveis and Dennis Kole are voting members and district advocates of the Recording Academy for the GRAMMYS® (NARAS), as well as members of Folk Alliance International, the Americana Music Association, and are BMI and Indie Collaborative artists.
