An alternative heavy rock band that infuses melodic rhythms and ferocious guitars with harmonic vocals, creating a unique and powerful blend that demands attention from both alternative rock and metal enthusiasts alike.
Singer/songwriter Kenneth Raftree started, as most musicians do, playing covers in high school. Influenced by everything from Led Zeppelin to Van Halen, Kenneth eventually progressed to both singer and songwriter playing, singing and writing for a few local original bands before starting his own band.
In 2013, RAFTREE released their new single, What I Say. The single was placed in rotation on numerous internet radio stations and terrestrial college radio stations, WDHA’s Home Grown Spotlight and WRAT’s Jersey Rock.
After the addition of lead guitarist Charlie Alaimo, drummer Andy Roland, and bassist Ed Tuberion, RAFTREE again teamed up with John Seymour and Stacy O’Dell to record their new self-titled EP that released in the spring of 2016. Later that year RAFTREE released their first music video, All The Time.
In 2018, RAFTREE teamed with Jerry Ramos (Mercury Studios), John Seymour (Media 51) & Stacy O’Dell for their follow up single Stay With Me; to be released Spring 2019.
