EP #20: Talkin’ Tracks w/ URBANO
Meet URBANO! This brother and sister duet is comprised of John and Marisa Urbano, hailing from the suburbs of Philadelphia. For URBANO, their love of making music had illuminated their purpose quite brightly, creating a strong foundation in crafting their aesthetic style of blending pop, EDM, and hip hop sounds together. This sibling duo has a unique approach to writing and recording their sound, as John raps all the verses, and Marisa sings the hooks and bridges. Join us for a special Talkin’ Tracks episode, where we learn more about URBANO and the story behind our POUND track “Standing Ovation.”
