Local blues rock band, RMB, is releasing their first album.
Online PR News – 25-May-2017 – BELLFLOWER, Calif. – RMB, a Bellflower-based blues rock band is getting ready release their debut album entitled “Sober Soul,” on July 15, 2017. The album is produced by Erwin Rocha of Harmony Studios in Anaheim, Calif.
The RMB journey started back in 2015 when bassist Jose “Pudge” Alcantar first heard guitarist Randell “Tubbs” Milan play during an open mic night at Talia’s, a local coffee shop in Norwalk, Calif. The musical pair instantly connected, but were in need of a drummer.
Enter Carlos “Smiles” Soto. Milan remembered Soto from their time together in the Downey High School marching band. Coincidentally, Soto was in between bands at the time, and agreed to meet up for a jam session.
“I had never met Carlos before that day, but one rehearsal was all we needed. Playing with these two has always felt easy and natural,” said Jose Alcantar. The trio then banded together to form RMB. With influences such as B.B. King, The Black Keys and The Beatles, RMB aims appeal to a wide audience of music lovers.
The “Sober Soul” album is the manifestation of several years worth of pain, love, hope and growth. “We’ve already come so far as individual musicians and as a band,” Randell Milan said. “I wrote many of these songs before RMB, but they’ve greatly evolved since Jose, Carlos and I joined forces.”
RMB has played shows in over 12 cities across the Los Angeles and Orange Counties, and has also hosted events such as a music festival (Randellpalooza) and a benefit concert (Sober Soul). Connect with RMB on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat.
