Drummer Avinash Ramachandra Joins Caleb Mark in New Album
LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Acclaimed drummer Avinash Ramachandra of post rock band Bones Like Snowflakes will be performing in Caleb Mark’s upcoming album.
“Caleb is such an amazing performer, singer and songwriter that I’m really excited at the prospect of working with him in this new album,” Ramachandra said. “Caleb's background is R&B, soul and pop music – something that I never got the chance to explore myself. But, when Caleb sent me his demo I was hooked on his music and he was nice enough to give me space to experiment and make it sound like my own!”
The new yet untitled album will feature about a dozen songs written by Mark who is known for his soulful voice and powerful melodies that blend classic R&B, soul and pop with today’s modern sound.
“I’m thrilled to have Avinash be a part of this new album and share his great energy,” Mark said. “I’m very excited about the new songs for this album and having him on board along with the rest of the talented musicians in the band makes it a real treat!”
The Mark’s new album comes on the heels of a string of hit singles such as “Try Love,” “Everything’s Good,” and “Guilty” which feature catchy melodies and strong vocals that echo Mark’s affinity for classic R&B.
“We have 12 songs at the moment which is a mixture of originals and famous pop covers,” Ramachandra said. “So this will be a very fun album with some really great music that the fans are going to love.”
Known for energetic drumming and work with a slew of bands, most recently Bones Like Snowflakes, Ramachandra brings an energy and playful approach to his work that has earned him a strong following and growing fan base.
Born in Bangalore, India, Ramachandra found a passion for drumming began when he first watched Iron Maiden performing live at the age of 16. It was at that moment that he realized he wanted to play music for life.
After taking private drumming lessons and going on to join several bands, he graduated with a Bachelor's in Engineering in Computer Science and decided to seek his fortune in the U.S. where he began studying music at the Musicians Institute in Hollywood. He would go on to perform with bands such as the Acid Quartet and others.
