Resonance. It’s what happens when something moves at its natural frequency.

Resonance’s music defies categorisation. As comfortable with blues rock and funk as it is with pop and calypso, Resonance brings multiple genres together under one voice. Radhika grew up playing classical piano, while listening to rock ‘n’ roll and pop, and singing in school choirs. The first sound that spoke to her was Steve Lukather’s rhythm guitar riff on Michael Jackson’s Beat It. From there to Beethoven’s Cello and Piano Sonatas, to U2’s The Joshua Tree, and her personal guitar gods Jimi Hendrix and Mark Knopfler, there is no leap, only continuity. Resonance is difficult to pigeonhole and all the better for it.

Resonance is best experienced live, with one San Francisco booker saying “the band delivers crowd-pleasing sets to get folks moving!” In 2019, Resonance embarked on its Escape Velocity Tour. Kicking off in Northern California’s wine country, the self-made tour has gone through Napa, Sonoma and Petaluma, playing the JaM Cellars and Sonoma’s downtown gathering spot Murphy’s. Resonance then headed to SoCal and played its first ever show in Los Angeles. Stops in San Diego, San Luis Obispo County, and Big Sur’s famed Fernwood Resort rounded out the US leg of the tour. A European leg follows in October.

Before heading to Europe, Resonance will play 4 dates at the San Francisco Fringe Festival in September 2019. The SF Fringe is one of oldest fringe festivals in the United States, and it features local and national performers on three stages at the Exit Theatre in the Tenderloin. An hour-long original production, Resonance’s show will feature original songs and stories written by Radhika.

Resonance’s releases include a debut EP If The Fires They Burn Too Bright (2012), the unstoppable funk rock single Mister Policeman (2014) and the pop calypso summer party track Reverie (2014). In July 2019, Resonance released its latest single Saturday Nights, a bass driven blues rock track. Resonance has more single releases planned for 2019, to start getting its catalogue out into the world, and working towards a full-length album.

Radhika lives in San Francisco, California.
