For a band that gets their name from a gravestone, Poeta is anything but morbid. The members of the band joined together with the common determination to spread their message through universal love and enlightenment. Poeta draws inspiration for their elegant rock sound from groups such as Saosin, Coheed and Cambria, My Chemical Romance, and City and Colour. Vocalist/guitarist Kevin Torres has an impressive range and brings strength and power to the band’s songs. Backed by Anthony Dentino on guitar, Sean Shewan on bass, and George Powell taking percussion duties, Poeta is a band that blurs the lines between genres.
Poeta’s debut EP, Golden Fields, is slated to be released in 2016 at Overlook Studios in Warminster, PA. The LP, produced by Bruce Wiegner (Victory in Numbers, Rivers Monroe), Golden Fields is a concise masterpiece that proves that Poeta is not going away any time soon.
