The Young Romans
The Young Romans are a duo from Los Angeles California. With Brad Hooks on vocals and piano and Sari Mellafe on guitar and vocals the two have quickly gained notoriety after their short time as a band. They have become known for their haunting melodies, seamless harmonies and their infectious songs.
In 2010, with only three songs under their belt they began getting phone calls from prominent Los Angeles producers, one of them was owner of indie label Red Parade Music; Jim Roach. The two hit it off with Jim creatively and personally and signed to Red Parade in the Spring of 2010. In the fall of 2010 the Young Romans released their debut EP “Yesterday Night.”
In January 2011 the duo were asked by film music supervisor veteran Dave Jordan to write the end-title track for the Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt film Salmon Fishing In The Yemen. Their song “Where You Go” made itʼs debut at the end of the film in March of 2012.
With the help of Red Parade Music The Young Romans have also caught the attention of the powers at be at iTunes. The staff fell in love with the band and their first single “Tiger Child” on their first full length record was featured as the iTunes Indie Download of the Week on April 10th, a promotion well known for breaking new bands.
In addition to their upcoming record, The Young Romans will be hitting the road to support their release in the Spring of 2012.
