Last year saw the band touring as main support to Slash in both Europe and America, where they received a ton of great reviews, as well as playing headline slots of their own at The Viper Room, L.A. and the Billboard Lounge N.Y.
Even though he’s still only 25 year sold, Oli Brown, singer and multi award winning guitarist, has already released four solo albums and toured the world for 10 years with legends such as Jeff Beck, Buddy Guy, Johnny Winter andJoe Satriani. He recorded the 5 tracks on “Breaking Out” before teaming up with drummer Kev Hickman and bassist Aaron Spiers to take the songs out live - et voilà – RavenEye was born.
Classic Rock called the EP’s lead track ‘Breaking Out’ a ‘filthy monster of a song’. Listen here: https://soundcloud.com/itsraveneye/breaking-out. The band have also been confirmed on a number of US and European Festival dates.
