Columbus, OH-based Bluesy Rock Band BLACK COFFEE has announced the addition of a new bass player to their line-up, Nick Fratianne. To introduce the new member, the band released a hilarious new video filmed and created by John Payne of Payne Productions.
“We’re all super happy to have Nick on board with Black Coffee, not only is he a very close friend but also one of the best bassists in Columbus, I’m most excited to see what crazy shit Ehab comes up with now that he doesn’t have to worry about the bass!” - Tommy
“I’ve known Nick forever, he helped introduce me to my first tastes of classic hard rock as well as being a bandmate in my formative years of music, we’re super pumped to have him in the Black Coffee family and to see how his talents can help push us even further!” - Ehab
Black Coffee formed in early 2017 after drummer Tommy McCullough introduced singer|bassist, Ehab Omran, to guitarist Justin Young. Within the first few days, these artists began songwriting and the chemistry was overwhelmingly apparent.
With the release of Black Coffee’s debut album, Take One, on April 21st, the Columbus, Ohio rockers definitely possess the sound, style, confidence and work ethic to drive this album’s success. The original single, “I Barely Know Her,” is already available on all streaming services, and its accompanying video debuts Friday, April 20th.
Fans can expect a diverse selection of original music. From the raw and dominant 1st single to the blistering, “Hurricane,” and funky, “Monica,” . . . along with otherworldly, “The Traveler,” and drive-with-the-top-down classic,“ Born To Lie,” Take One proves to be one of the most exciting musical debuts in modern history.
Black Coffee combines superb musicianship with a high-energy performance that is refreshingly both vintage and ground-breaking. This three-piece collaboration takes inspiration from classic rock bands of the '60s, '70s, and '80s, and fuses it with the root music of blues and rock n' roll from the '40s and '50s. Dedicated to re-inventing modern rock music, Black Coffee parts the proverbial sea for the next generation of artists.
