The Burning River Ramblers / Bio

Bringing an eclectic mix to the table and a never-ending energy to every performance, BRR takes pride in bringing together elements of alt rock, reggae, jazz, folk, and blues into a breezy, catchy musical cacophony. The best way to explain their sound is to simply listen!

BRR is a band that started in Cleveland with Conor Standish (vocals/guitar) and Chris Rush (bass) but ended up truly starting in Athens, Ohio. After acquiring Jesse Catania and his brother, Zach Catania (lead guitar/vocals), BRR hopped into the Analog Arcade in Cleveland and recorded their first, self-titled album in just three days. Then, in 2012 after recording some demos with Dave Young as a producer down in Athens, Ohio and hearing that Dave was also a keyboard player that was without a band at the moment, BRR picked him up and they have been on a roll ever since. They have just put out a new album titled, "To Color a Fool," which was co-produced by Dave Young Sr. and Dave Young Jr., recorded at Suma Recordings and Rexkalibur Studios, and mastered with the highly respectable Jim Demain. This new album is a capstone for BRR in becoming a band that is ready to reek havoc on the music scene. Watch out for big things soon to come! BRR has currently acquired a new drummer, Mr. Owen Park, who has exceeded their expectations and is a huge benefit to the band.

Some accomplishments made by BRR in the short years they have been together are: Conor Standish's song "Stranger on the Street" off BRR's debut album winning the John Lennon Songwriting Contest's "Valentine's Day Love Song Competition" in February of 2012; and placing 37th out of 12,000 bands around the world while representing Cleveland in the Hard Rock Rising Competition.

BRR also is also deeply involved with charities. After the release of their first album, The Ramblers joined up with the SPEA, Suicide Prevention Education Alliance, to help educate others about teen suicide by donating $1 for every CD they sell. This was due to the fact that the song "Redwood" on the self-titled album deals with this subject, so they thought it fitting.

BRR believes that with the combination of great music, a meaningful cause, and a hardworking attitude, there's no roof over their heads as far as what they can accomplish in the coming years.
