Oak & Ash - 'Step Into The Light'
Hailing from New York City, Oak & Ash is an alternative pop-rock group who is sure to spark attention in the music industry. In a short time, the group has taken the stage at renowned venues such as The Gramercy Theatre, Irving Plaza, The Paramount Theatre and Webster Hall. Members of the band include: Rich Tuorto, lead vocals and guitar; Chris Tuorto, guitar; Paul Gramigna, bass and Bryan Garbe on drums. In July 2015, the band released its debut EP titled ‘Slightly Reckless’ and is set to release a second EP that will include their newest single "Step Into The Light." “Step Into The Light” is a great way to step into the talent of Oak & Ash.
“Step Into the Light” opens with single chords strummed over light and melodic electronic nuances and a steady drum beat. Soon the percussion leads into a jamming track full of energy . Rich Tuorto enters on the first verse with pop-rock-perfect vocals (similar to Adam Levine) clear and bright above the mix. In the chorus, some light digital vocal effects add a great pop flavor to Rich’s timbre. The bass and percussion are tight and in–the-pocket yielding a contagious groove. A nice mid-section commences with ooo’s and oh’s against a snapping percussion that builds showcasing Oak & Ash’s strong songwriting skills. Overall the song is completely infectious and can rival any pop-rock song on the market today. It's chart ready and radio ready.
