“The story of the band begins in 2008, when two of its participants – Taras Terletsky (vocals/guitars) and Vitaliy Lityagin (keyboards) reformed a well known pop-rock band YakaisnuE (which exist) into more heaviest sound. That’s how the tracks “Take Me” and “The Beat Of Heart” where created.
Not long after SR got a new young Guitar player – Paul Ilnytskyy. Before that he played in number of bands in England and Germany. So this new participant came to the band with a huge experience. Paul also became a back vocalist.
Concerning the name, it was seen by the members of the band on the computer monitor after the electricity fail… Shock on the studio – the idea was that this name was given by someone high upon!”
On today’s TWITTER TUESDAY LIVE, Mark and I were joined by two young lads from this rocking band from the UKRAINE, SAMPLE RATE – Taras Terletsky ,vocals / guitars and Pavlo Ilnytskyy ,guitars / vocals. Other memebers of the band that couldn’t be here today are Nazar “Rembo” Pogorletsky – drums and Vitaly Lityagin – keyboards / vocals.
Being a live show, when we experience some technical difficulties, we can’t really do much about it. We have to weather the storm and just get on with the show! Which is just what we did. We had a good audience that tuned in live and gave some great feedback and support to the guys from SAMPLE RATE.
During the show, Taras and Pavlo talked about their passion for what they do and how they want to further their musical career and their dreams of one day playing in the USA and Australia, of course!
Talking to them, you can tell they are very proud of their country, their language and their heritage and this comes out in the music that the band produces.
Despite the technical issues that they were both having, Mark and I really enjoyed talking to them. They have a great sense of humour and are fun guys to be around!
We have four of their songs currently on the Butterflies Rotation including a fantastic cover from one of my favourite bands, SAVAGE GARDEN, “Moon and Back”. For the audience that tuned in live today, we showcased 3 of their songs, all with good positive feedback. The songs we featured were:
