Subito Pianno is a band founded by Ruben Erazo, Bogota, Colombia born singer, songwriter, keyboardist and record producer. Their sound is an interesting fusion of rock, pop, jazz, soul, lounge and classical with beautiful arrangements and powerful vocals.
He is a classically trained singer and keyboardist and has studied, worked and lived in Germany for several years. He currently resides in the friendly little town of Denton, Texas and is the owner of the Subito Sound Studio.
The name of the band Subito Pianno comes from the musical terminology “subito piano,” which means suddenly soft. Ruben added an extra “n” to give his personal touch. This project spans many years of listening to a plethora of great music and genres. For Ruben, art and music is about developing a concept that takes shape through years of searching. His influences come from classical music, the blues, jazz, rock, funk and soul from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.
He was first inspired to play the piano by listening to the music of J. S. Bach, Elton John, Billy Joel and Supertramp.
Unwavering in his vision, Ruben believes music is a mean for communication and cohesion. As a songwriter the music he makes is what he really is below the layers of his surface. Artists know how it can be intimidating to be so naked, but transparency is where we draw our greatest strength from as a species.
Another music project of Ruben’s is a band called Gravity Mission featuring creative designer and lyricist Scott Werley. Their sound is a combination of electronic, chill-out, conscious music to reconnect with the planet and all of life. Visit the Gravity Mission website for more information and to purchase their music.
Ruben also enjoys singing opera. An advocate for reason, humanism and freethinking, he believes that our home Earth is in jeopardy because of humanity’s abuse of power and reach. The human species are self-destructive and selfish in respect to other life forms.
