Raveis Kole (Laurie Raveis (Ray-viss) and Dennis Kole) is a singer-songwriter interplay melding Raveis’ caramel smooth, emotive vocals and groove driven acoustic guitar rhythms with Kole’s fingerstyle counterpoint and harmonic explorations. Their style is “Artistic, Thoughtful and Connecting” - creating songs that turn left in a right-handed world. Their new project, “Electric Blue Dandelion - Nashville Sessions” with co-producer, Jeff Silverman (Allman Brothers, Prince, Rick Springfield) casts an organic, natural light on the beauty and grit of the intimately bold tracks. The album celebrates truth, pain and transformation weaving a musical tapestry of lyrically focused, rhythmic and harmonic textures which invite the listeners to connect their own experience.
Their music is drawn from an array of traditions: Folk, Rock, Reggae, Latin, and World music - and explores everything from altered tunings to jazz and vocal harmonies to create a fresh infusion that will stimulate your ear and your heart.
“5 out of 5 stars! The songs are extremely infectious, largely due to the thoughtful and insightful lyrical content”
