Sam Ravenna’s sophomore release, “Fragile”, picks up where his self-titled EP leaves off, and dives deeper into what drives Ravenna as an artist. From vintage Motown flavored soul music, neo-soul funk beats, yacht rock, to experimental avant-guard Jazz and psychedelic dub, ‘Fragile’ simultaneously throws you back to the past, and plunges you deep into the future. To record the album, Sam and his Lake Tahoe based band set up an extensive studio at the house of drummer and sound engineer, John Riley. They laid the foundation for a 14 track album, all while being inspired by the views of a massive alpine lake just outside the window.

Ravenna hits the road this fall with New Orleans soul-man Eric Lindell, opening the tour solo and lending bass and vocals to Lindell’s band. Ravenna’s solo show allows a place for the root of his songs to come through, and gives the listener a more intimate experience of his voice and message.
