To a Loved One
The current lineup of Hello Kavita (Corey Teruya, Ian Short, Jimmy Stofer, Leor Manelis, Luke Mossman) has been together for two years. The bands' effortless chemistry comes from years of playing with other groups and extensive touring. 'Songwriting just flows with these guys..' says Leor Manelis. 'Everyone is on the same page, and everyone plays a crucial role in the band's sound. It's easy to get things done.' With the success of their debut album, 'And Then We Turned Sidweways,' Hello Kavita was awarded 'Best New Denver Band' by 5280 Magazine in 2008. The band is now slated to release it's highly anticipated follow-up sophomore release 'To A Loved One' in October 2009. '...smart songwriting that takes cues from Neil Young and the Beatles, with vocals that easily connect with the listener.' - The Denver Post 'Dedicated and blossoming with a mature and accomplished sound, Hello Kavita is on the short track to standing atop Denver's pantheon of musical talent.' - Jonathan Bitz, Syntax Magazine '...Hello Kavita showed again why it's one of Denver's most promising acts of the moment.' - Westword 'We hadn't seen these guys in a few months, but they sounded tremendous at last week's Sea Wolf show at the Larimer Lounge. The band's nuanced songwriting and solid performance almost outshone that of the evening's headliner - a difficult task indeed.' - Ricardo Baca, The Denver Post 1-25-08 Hello Kavita has played with: Band of Horses, Sea Wolf, Dios Malos, American Music Club, Limbeck, Maria Taylor, Shearwater, Great Northern, Point Juncture, WA.
