- Mania Raviner 3:42
Hailing from Nashville, TN, Raviner is an alt-metal band that intertwines elements of dark pop and cinematic rock to curate their distinctive sound. Raviner was formed in late 2015, emerging out of founder Kamber Kigin’s desire to create a separate band from her solo singer-songwriter work. Early next year Kamber met and began collaborating with members Rob Shollenberger and Jon Wisecarver. After a hiatus in 2019, the band experienced a breath of new life. In late 2020 Christian Nicks, Jordan Armstrong, and Joshua Maher joined Raviner and have continued to create the singular brand of visceral, cathartic rock Raviner is known for.
Raviner’s debut EP, [Disconnected], was released in 2016, in conjunction with an eponymous short film featuring Hannah Howard and Natalie Pauley (of fellow Nashville band, The By Gods). 2017 saw the release of their second EP Beast. Amid the chaos in 2020, Raviner’s creativity and musical fervor were unquenched. That year, they recorded their self-titled EP and released singles “Animal” and “Drown”. In 2021, self-titled EP Raviner was released along with a music video for “Animal”.
Raviner has garnered the attention and praise of fans and press alike, being featured by publications such as HM Magazine, Nashville Unsigned, No Country for New Nashville, and Tuned Up. They also earned the title of “Tennessee’s Best Unsigned Band” from Alt Press. They have played shows regionally and locally, sharing the stage with prominent acts such as Awake at Last, Diamante, Ded, Eyes Set to Kill, Heavy Things, FLAW, Pop Evil, Set it Off, and Zahna. With 2022 on the horizon, Raviner is already in the studio writing and creating.
