Daphne's Roots is an L.A. based , progressive rock band (though all members are from South America) formed in 2011. While attending Musicians Institute, Jose Antonio Roman (keyboard) asked his childhood friend Manuel Sambour (lead guitar, vocals) to take part in a music project he had started working on. Daniel Silva (rhythm guitar) joined the band and soon after Roman flew to Las Vegas to ask Felipe Restrepo to be the official drummer. Matt Spatola, Sambour's roommate at the time, offered to play bass in the band until the last official bass player was found. During that time the 5 piece band worked on the release of their first EP and gig around Hollywood. "Enter the Voyage" was released on July 24th 2012. The band is currently working on their first full length album with Kevin Lambertucci as their new full-time bass player.
