Raftree: Raftree

Raftree is the musical project of singer/guitarist Kenneth Raftree, and this is the band's first four song demo release. Although Raftree plays all the guitars and bass on the CD, the live line-up includes drummer Vincent Livolsi, lead guitarist Angel Vivaldi, and bassist Chris Targia. The band have put together four solid compositions here that combine catchy hard rock, metal, blues, and funk. At times these guys sound like a cross between Sevendust (minus the screaming), Living Colour, and Lenny Kravitz. Raftree's soulful voice and heavy riffs work well against tasty lead guitar on songs like "Room" and the melodic single "Salvation", while "Missing" is just an all around solid heavy rock number with pounding rhythms and fiery guitar leads. Even though the demo is mainly a two man recording, this is solid stuff and it will be interesting to hear what the full band can do.A lot of promise is shown on these four cuts, and I think a bright future is ahead for this New Jersey band.
