The Burning River Ramblers
Folk-Rock | Cleveland OH

Cleveland, Ohio, home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, has long been producing some of the best independent musical acts in the country. One of its latest products is THE BURNING RIVER RAMBLERS (BRR), a band that has hit the ground running in the year following its debut self-titled album release. Almost immediately following its release in August 2011, the Cleveland Plain Dealer named the band as a "top 25 Band to Watch". BRR has also raised eyebrows as the band quickly built a large and passionate fan base in Northeast Ohio (as well as Athens, Ohio where most of the members attend college) with its breezy, funky, all-around unique sound. In February 2012, lead singer and songwriter, Conor Standish, won the grand prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest's Valentine's Day Love Song Contest for "Stranger on the Street", a track from BRR's debut album. As exciting as this is, the group has still greater songwriting aspirations. Conor and his fellow cast of Christopher Rush on bass, Owen Park on drums, Zach Catania on vocals and guitar, and Dave Young on keys are in the midst of writing material for their upcoming sophomore album.

BRR has also teamed up with the Suicide Prevention Education Alliance (SPEA) to help educate and increase awareness. Their song, "Redwood", was written in memory of a friend who took his life. As part of the alliance with the SPEA, a portion of the proceeds from CD sales, as well as 99 cents for every download of "Redwood" on iTunes, is being donated to the charity. Since suicide is the second leading cause of death in young people in Ohio, BRR wants to spread that word of prevention as they continue to tour regionally and beyond.
