Boston-based, Berklee College of Music grads, Ripe, have never felt more assured about the band or their music.  Collectively and personally, Ripe has weathered a mountain of adversity over the past few years, including a shifting lineup, a change in management and turbulence in the musicians’ personal lives — plus a global pandemic that made recording “Settling” a logistically complex bicoastal project.  Even before the pandemic, Ripe was on the cusp of something new. The band began drawing acclaim from the likes of the Boston GlobeHuffington Post and WXPN with a dance-ready funk vibe on EPs Produce The Juice and Hey HelloRipe built on that sound and folded in a touch of R&B on their first full-length, Joy in the Wild Unknown. Their streams surged past 56 million, they conquered stages at festivals including Bonnaroo, Firefly, SweetWater and Bottlerock, and they sold thousands of tickets across the US, including sell outs at iconic venues like House of Blues Boston and Brooklyn Steel.
