Casanatra came to be in early 2002 when Lance Reed, Jer Fink and Dennis Asher found themselves without any commitments and a desire to spend the most time possible in musical telepathy with each other. Each brought a part of their past endeavors to create a sound that was forged in rock, but injected with elements of almost every musical style. The goal was to write songs that were individually unique while owning the common thread of big guitars and monstrous drumming. Synchronicity brought them together and the pure love of playing has cemented a musical bond that holds tight after 4 releases: Is This Tonight-BWR 0011- Wood and Glass-BWR 0016, Primo Impacto-BWR-0023 and their early 2009 release 'Death Ride' which is a rebirth of sorts for the band. New producer, Jeff Halland of Houston fame. New songwriting approach, short punchy and powerful. New haircuts....and so on. Adventurous and accessible, Casanatra has finally created a record that lives up to the sum of their parts, they've discovered the secret formula and they aren't giving it away, but they'll always invite you in for a drink and a listen. Keep your Casanatra eyes open for spring and summer touring to be followed by a 5th release in the winter of 2009.
