Rhvibe (that's 'rhythm' and 'vibe' into one word), surfacing from one of the most unlikely places not well known for an exciting music scene, has blended a variety of acoustic rhythms and rock hooks into a form music that has begun to turn heads from all over the country. While primarily a solo artist in the early years of Rhvibe, Chris Downing had made a name for himself in the local community. After recording his Debut album 'Waiting Around' in August of 2005, Chris turned to the internet as his primary resource for new listeners. My Space and Pure Volume became his two best friends, opening up whole new opportunities. Teaming up with Jim Tyrrell in late 2005, the two began playing duo acoustic gigs first at Plymouth State University open mics, then local bars and eventually all over Northern New England. Shortly after, Chris' brother Aaron was brought in to play drums, moving Jim to the Bass and the solo act Rhvibe to a full working band. After a year's hiatus, Rhvibe is back in swing, booking more shows for 2008 and working on new material for their 2nd studio release. Teaming up with other local acts as well have opened up yet even more opportunities and the hopes for more promising endeavors.
