It always comes back to music, right?When I met Laena, I was drawing a band I knew from high school called The Like. Of the group, Laena was a stranger to me- being the fill-in bassist after a founding member left. I had sent the gang some designs and layouts, and of the foursome, Laena was immediately and enthusiastically the first to respond to my art. Thus, when she decided to pursue a career headlining her own band, I happily followed.
This once-alluring and enigmatic bassist became an all-encompassing force on the stage. She could play all of the instruments behind her, but chose to command the front using every inch of her body and voice to dance and wail. Raw Geronimo was the embodiment of her life, her perspective, her hobbies, hopes, and fears. I dug it.
Over the past two years, I’ve been able to watch the band evolve and form, take shape into an ensemble of jungle rock. Each of those dudes and dudettes make being a competent musician look easy and cool. Also during this time, I’ve looked to Laena for inspiration on pursuing my dreams. Starting a band of your own is a gigantic risk when you’re a respected and attractive girl that any other musical group would kill to have on tour. She’s had to turn down some guaranteed paychecks touring for other bands in order to dedicate fully to Raw Geronimo.  Like Laena, and a handful of friends out here, I took the plunge into following my aspirations to becoming a full-time artist/ cartoonist. I try to make it look fun and easy, too.
With Raw Geronimo’s debut album- Dream Fever- coming out next week, I implore you all to take a listen. Gauging people’s music taste is impossible, but all I can say is that you will be investing in one of the most passionate and earnest individuals I know. Her imagination is boundless, and I see this album as only the beginning of what should be an extraordinary career for Laena and Raw Geronimo.
They’re playing a free show at Amoeba in Hollywood tomorrow at 7P. The set is going to be energetic and awesome, and they’ll have advance copies of the record on them. If you’re curious, here’s a link to listen to one of their more beautifully romantic tracks, Magnetic Love:
