Restoring Poetry in Music

Restoring Poetry in Music (RPM) was formed late last century by cousins Jason Moore (Raw Poetic) and Marlon Vann (H2A).

Restoring Poetry in Music (RPM) was formed late last century by cousins Jason Moore (Raw Poetic) and Marlon Vann (H2A). Toiling in their basement spawned demos and an EP entitled “Transitions,” which sparked interest and meetings with record executives, including those at Columbia Records. In these meetings the duo heard the same critique: “You’re too Hip-Hop for Rock and too Rock for Hip-Hop. ” Frustrated, but not discouraged, RPM ignored this limited perception of what modern music should sound and look like and pressed on with their vision of RPM. As they evolved musically, they began doing something that further complicated their definition and classification: they added members; they created a band. Bassist Drew Thomas (known in certain circles by the acronym B.E.S.S) was the first addition. Keyboardist, trumpeter and bassist Aaron Gause (Enron) and classically trained guitarist Patrick Fritz (P-Fritz) soon followed, as did drummer Fred Jackson.

Not long after forming, Fred left to dedicate himself to his university studies. His replacement, Blake Surbey, entered the fold, but was soon replaced by Will Bobbit, an accomplished gospel drummer. In time, co-founding member H2A decided that he too had to part ways with the band. « hide
