Biography

Rozinante is groove rock with an ebb n flow that sways between sultry and funky. The music is set by percussive rhythms which lay down a foundation for lyrics that are both a social commentary as well as an interpersonal reflection.

Rozinante was founded by singer/songwriters Jeff Santiago and Chad "Catfish" Treatman. Both are products of New York City, but met and began working together in Los Angeles, where they are now based. Though they started and ended up in the same places, they harmoniously blend their individual experiences into music that expresses their journeys. They enjoy the intimacy of acoustic performances but also wanted to dynamically fill out the sound. So they recruited the dynamic duo of a rhythm section, Dustin Jack (drums) and Alex Bendana (bass). As a full band they’ve been offering up sweet dynamics that fill up larger venues.

Early in 2005 Rozinante released their self titled acoustic EP recorded with producer James Book. Book was the bassist and songwriter for The Flys. Currently Rozinante is back with Book working hard on the full band full length CD.

The name, Rozinante, comes from that which Don Quixote named his trusty steed. Rozinante symbolizes the vehicle that carries us through our experiences and dreams.

Lyrics

Seen This World

Written By: Jeff Santiago

Been in love, been in hate
tripped upon this world that I'd create, in my mind
See in you what was once in me
It's about time I smiled since you set me free
I've seen this world before

When I awoke, it was light
the morning after the longest night, in my life
I was glad to see I made it through
My eyes they finally cleared and the world was new
though
I've seen this world before
Glad to be here once more

Green

Written By: Chad Treatman

So low now, time stands still
Comfortably cozy in this fix.
So slowly its claws sink in,
My feelings so numb I’m losing sight.
It holds me I’ve fallen down,
Watching my dreams wasting away
Too fast now it’s speeding by,
Out of my skin I’m spilling life

Oh? So is it time
To tell me why
I disconnect

Taken back from me in between
It dissolves away the pain
I feel like I’m inside out losing time
Don’t have to waste your breath
I’m hanging on…When I’ll be Green again

I feel me, comin’ ‘round
Don’t want to numb myself tonight
Can’t stand now to waste my time
Awakening to see it wasn’t right
It’s clear now you fade so fast
Caught up in everybody’s lies
Don’t hold on release the past
Picked me up again I’m feeling fine

Oh? So is it time
To tell me why
I disconnect

Taken back from me in between
It dissolves away the pain
I feel like I’m inside out losing time
Don’t have to waste your breath
I’m hanging on…When I’ll be Green again (
