BIO: The DePresleys

DePresleys is an international meeting of minds among composer/programmer/sound designer/guitarist Geir Weggersen in Norway; composer/vocalist/lyricist Jon Ravneng, Norwegian in Utah; drummer/associate producer Rick Shlosser (featured on some of the biggest albums and singles of all time, including Van Morrison’s Tupelo Honey and Rod Stewart’s Tonight’s the Night, as well as work with Alice Cooper, James Taylor, and many more) in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico; and producer/engineer Paul D. Carlsen (whose multiplatinum and Grammy-winning experience includes work with Nirvana, Neil Young, John Prine, Genghis Blues, Zap Mama, and many more) in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Expert multi-woodwind player Richard Hardy (who has played and recorded with Carol King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Dave Matthews, and George Harrison) in L.A.; and guitarists Torbjörn Andersson (of Roxette and other well-known Swedish acts) in L.A. and Sweden, and Josh Sklair (two-time Grammy-winning producer/guitarist formerly with Etta James), South African in L.A., also regularly lend their extraordinary talents to the band.
The sounds of depresleys have been placed in European and American films and TV shows (such as A Matter of Justice and Melrose Place), and over the years, the group has cultivated a publishing catalog of over 258 songs for licensing.
Should it be any surprise that depresleys’ music embodies this meshing of cultures in an unusually cinematic fashion, at once calling up such seemingly polar-opposite types of beauty as Norwegian snowscapes and Southwestern deserts (which Weggersen and Ravneng have traveled extensively)? Or that you can hear the gamut from ambient techno, alternative and modern rock, soul, beat poetry, African to pop styles in their songs, amalgamated by cohesive stories and stark soundscapes?
