Crave was formed by singer-songwriter Erik John and bassist Vincent Martone in 1995. 'I wanted this project to be a culmination of music and culture today', says Erik . It wasn't much time before the right musicians came together Crave was performing in NYC. Behind Erik's powerful lyrics lurks the bands' swirling guitars, strong beats, innovative sounds, samples and scratches. Terrah Scroll, the bands keyboardist uses an array of analog synths and triggers many of the samples. DJ Mentos is the bands cut specialist. Wayne Collier provides the thundering beats and Martone is his partner in rhythm on the bass. John, the bands singer also plays guitar. Crave is an intense live band. The band is building a following in New York City and plans to start touring the East Coast.
