The band brings forth a new sound that AJ Rafael is proud to express to the audience heard today in his latest album titled, “Red Roses.”

“I was born to play music. I grew up to live for music. I have learned to breathe music. I already feel successful in a sense that I have touched someone else’s heart with my music. I only hope to inspire more people to have music in their lives: that’s all it’s about. Popularity, money, attention, I mean all of that’s nice (not that I get much of it), but that’s all temporary… music is FOREVER.” –AJ Rafael.
