This is part two of our conversation with RIPE so if you haven’t heard the first, go to abovethebasement.com/episodes to listen.
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 blow away the crowd a 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.
Song 1: Goon Squad (Hey Hello)
Song 2: Down With The Dark Side (Produce The Juice)
Song 3: Caralee (Hey Hello)
