RAMS’ started life as a drummer, in bands and orchestras before beginning to write his own music. With wide ranging and ever changing influences, from Radiohead, Beethoven, to brutalist architecture – It’s pop, but deconstructed a little.
There is very little known or published about this band. They are based in Los Angeles, CA. They just did a Wednesday night residency last month at The Echo in Echo Park, CA. They came out of seemingly nowhere last year and have been creating some buzz with their dreamy electro beats and mysterious videos. For such little publicity, they already have over 4000 likes on Facebook.
Diamonds Under Fire
Diamonds Under Fire began as the solo musical project & heart of Los Angeles based singer, songwriter & guitarist Vanessa Silberman. In 2012 with the addition & collaboration of Jessica Goodwin (drums) & Melinda Holm (bass/vocals) Diamonds Under Fire was re-born & completed.
Diamonds Under Fire’s 3 piece power house live show & music has often been compared to the raw bare bones rock ‘n roll of Nirvana, The Ramones, Chrissie Hynde with the danciness of No Doubt & the vocal pop melody sensibilities of Pink.
With strong DYI ethics, Diamonds Under Fire has self released numerous Demos & EPs as well as toured the US over 9 times, playing Canada, the UK, SXSW, & The Sunset Strip Music Festival. Locally in Los Angeles Diamonds Under Fire has played The El Rey, The Troubadour, The Satellite, The Echo, The Viper Room, & Bootleg Theatre.
