Experience them live in Baltimore: Stereo RV: The Human Tour #whatmakesmehuman
Stereo RV is 2 musicians with an acoustic guitar that incorporate beatboxing and multi-vocalism that blend well together. Bringing emotional depth to pop music.
Myra Gleason, Stereo RV’s lead singer, has one of the most powerfully expressive voices you’ve ever heard. Her fervent vocals, backed by the guitar and extraordinary beat boxing abilities of her husband, Gabe, make the vulnerable songs on Human, their debut EP, an overwhelming experience. The tracks are flooded with the joys and sorrows of everyday life, given wing by the record’s vibrant production and melodies that will haunt you, even after a single listen. The duo has been thrilling audiences in their hometown of Portland since they began performing together six years ago. Myra’s singing and Gabe’s ability to mimic the sound of a full drum kit, make every live performance an other-worldly event. “When we play live, people keep looking behind us for the drummer,” Gabe says. “I’m a very technical and precise beat boxer. I pride myself on being able to provide any sound a percussionist can make.” The songs on Human, the duo’s debut EP, developed s lowly, coming together through trial and error over the course of two years of experimentation in the RV the couple calls home. The touching melodies and Myra’s true to life lyrics, inspired in part by her work with children in the foster care system, give the songs an emotional depth that’s often missing in pop music. “The question I often hear from the kids is, ‘Am I normal?’” Myra says. “Their lives are full of poverty and neglect, moving from one home to another, which makes that question harder to answer. That’s why we chose ‘Human’ as the title track. It represents all the voices constantly asking that question. The songs describe the traumas and victories that tie us together, the experiences that ultimately identify who we are, or who we’re trying to be.”
