VALE’s Newest Artist: November Lounge

November Lounge

On February 18, 2016, VALE Records signed its newest artist: November Lounge.

November Lounge Bio: Formed out of Annville, PA, November Lounge is a jazz/rock band comprised of three Lebanon Valley College music students. The trio primarily uses jazz theory in their song writing to create a plethora of soothing sounds that provide for easy listening while also adding improvised jams into their compositions. The group has a full sound for a trio due to Zach Washko’s (age 19) colorful style of bass playing, Aaron Abercrombie’s (age 20) melodic, yet driving guitar parts, and Alex Rubin’s (age 21) technical and heavy drum background. Their influences and styles range from progressive jazz to reggae to blues
