Raven Parade is an industrial rock band. Their theatrical live performance features beautifully choreographed dancers, adding to the romantic and gothic story being told by Baltimore native Raven. With each lyric, you can feel every emotion Raven has ever experienced. She has been writing lyrics and winning contests ever since grade school and continues to share her abilities working out of Los Angeles, California.
Los Angeles is where she met plenty of producers and worked continuously until she came across a brilliant producer by the name of Tom Chandler. That’s when the magic happened. With Raven’s eclectic writing abilities, and Tom Chandler's expertise, the “Looking Glass” album was created in November 2008 and completed in mid 2009.
The world's famous Sunset Strip is where Raven Parade has been performing live shows at The Viper Room, The Whisky a Go Go, The Good Hurt etc. She has been performing with an amazing band that consists of Serg Dimitrijevic (lead guitar) and Kristian Attard (bass) from Australia and Ron Allen an amazing drummer out of Los Angeles.
