In this collection, we wanted to honor the music of our parents and siblings, music that we listened to in the 70's, 80's and 90's, music that shaped and inspired us, such as The Beatles, Toto, Supertramp, Yes, Phil Collins, Fleetwood Mac, Bee Gees, REM, and Nirvana. By overlaying harmonies from classical and jazz music onto these roots, we created a fresh, new, and revitalized 80's sound. With easy-to-sing melodies and memorable lyrics, this CD is the perfect companion for your car and personal MP3 player!



The Apple Band was created on 1977, by Guillermo Delgado Aparicio and David Paredes while they attended high school. They grew up with their fathers’ 60’s and 70’s music, and dreamed of becoming musicians. They performed their first concert at the age of 15, playing Eagles, Beatles, BTO, Super Tramp and Toto covers while Oscar Bravo (drums), joined the group a little later. Guillermo, David and Oscar attended classical music studies in different schools but had to postpone them due to their demanding engineering and science under-graduate studies at the university. They continued playing with The Apple Band from time to time. Oscar Ruchelli (lead voice) and Coqui Linares (lead guitar) have recently joined the Band completing the crew and renaming it as The Apple Band Project.

“Roots”, the band’s first album, brings a perfect combination of rock, soul and blues passages. The band was dedicated full time to recording this album. Guillermo composed all the songs, while Oscar Bravo, Saul Cornejo and Guillermo produced them. “It was a huge effort, but it was worth the time to take care of each detail of the tracks”, say Guillermo and Oscar B. “By having Saul on board, we brought all of his experience and remarkable talent to polish each song”, David remarks. “Roots” will be available on stores and on-line by October 2008. Now the Band is focused on its next production: “Today”.

At the University, Guillermo played with the Classical Orchestra and learned how to play the Bass among several instruments. At the same time he continued playing with The Apple Band and was invited to participate as a studio recording musician by several groups. He studied Songwriting at Berklee on-line School of Music, receiving the Celebrities Scholarship for his outstanding grades and music. Now he is studying his Master in Songwriting and Music Business at Berklee. He received Golden and Platinum awards for his arrangements and songs in his independent production last year.

David studied classic guitar at the Bach Institute. After being a Beatles' fan at school, during college he cultivated folk acoustic music and later developed an interest in experiment other music styles and MIDI recording. At the same time he continued playing with The Apple Band and has participated in its last production: “Roots”.

In 1990, Oscar founded an audio recording and post-production facility: Gamma Studios. For more than 15 years, he managed the studio, produced several top artists and commercial spots. He continued playing with The Apple Band and has been invited by several artists to participate as a musician for both, recording sessions and live performances. He also received a Golden and Platinum awards for his joined participation as co-producer with Guillermo last year.

Oscar Ruchelli has recently joined the band. His powerful voice brings an excellent vibe to the songs. Oscar is quite creative with melodies and his musical background: Yes, Genesis, Beatles, among others, blend together to give to his performance a unique style.

Coqui Linares brings a fresh sound and a superb set of riffs and cadences to the Band’s songs. Coqui masters the guitar and his solos are quite memorable. His influences include Carlos Santana and Joe Satriani, roots that are reflected in his work.

For the recording sessions the band brought other musicians such as Paul Weisenfeld. Paul started playing trumpet in his junior high school band in Queens, NY in the late 1970s. He continued playing R&B and band music into College and also studied classical music and jazz. After more than a ten-year hiatus from music, he picked up and taught himself the soprano saxophone in the mid 1990s. This past year he started playing the alto saxophone and continues his broad interests in R&B, jazz and rock.

The Apple Band Project brings a unique style, while its roots are perfectly recognizable on its songs. Its songs sound so contemporary that they grab the listener immediately. Their lyrics and melodies are extremely memorable, a perfect choice for good music lovers, with rich vocal harmonies, spirited grooves, while vintage accessories enrich their production.
