Coming out of Berklee College of Music, RIPE has been called many things - from neo-soul to funk/pop to jam band - but whatever genre they fall into, their infectious licks, lyrical grooves and high energy performances made us immediate fans.
We sat with 3/7ths of the band out in Allston, MA a week or so after seeing them blow away the crowd at The Paradise. Singer Robbie Wulfsohn and guitarists Tory Geismar and Jon Becker joined us for a conversation about their roots, vision, and the love they have for the fans - which is a palpable entity if you have ever been to a RIPE show.
This is part one of a two part conversation!
Song 1: Little Lighter (upcoming release)
Song 2: Downward (upcoming release)
Song 3: Talk to the Moon (Hey Hello)
Live Song: Little Lighter
