The Young Romans

Bells And Sirens Part I

April 14th, 2015

Red Parade Music

The Young Romans are a Los Angeles based band with singer/piano-player Brad Hooks, and Chilean-raised singer/guitar player Sari Mellafe. Although they each come from opposite ends of the musical spectrum – Brad with a penchant for perfectly constructed pop songs, and Sari for haunting and ethereal sounds – their songwriting styles meet in the middle to create a unique and beautiful balance.

Their piano/guitar driven music has earned them some impressive accolades for a new band. In March of 2012 they released their first full length record “Tiger Child” on Red Parade Music with their single Tiger Child being chosen by iTunes as their free “Indie Spotlight” single of the week which garnered over 100K downloads and many new followers.

The same month their song “Where You Go” was the end-credit track in the Golden Globe nominated film “Salmon Fishing In The Yemen” starring Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt. Their songs have also appeared on the season finale of ABC’s The Fosters, FOX’s American Idol, Drop Dead DivaPretty Little Liars, and The Lying Game.

The band and producer Jim Roach have just finished their new EP Bells and Sirens which is set to be released in April of 2015 on Red Parade Music.
