S.A.T.O.R.I. - Sounds And Tempo Of Real Inspiration. We formed originally in 2001 in a Northern California town called Chico. We now reside in So-Cal. S.A.T.O.R.I. is a high energy, driven and determined rock band in the general range of Story Of The Year, The Used, 30 Seconds To Mars, Fall Out Boy and Taking Back Sunday. Our band consists of four members ages 23-25. Ashley Rubanoff 23 (Drums), Tyler DeVoll 24 (Guitar& Lead Vocals), Jeff Lawrence 25 (Guitars), Brian Jensen 24 (Bass).
Upon inception S.A.T.O.R.I. hit up the college scene and quickly built a reputation with the local universities and frat parties. Soon after word spread and S.A.T.O.R.I. quickly moved up the ladder from frat party band to booking bigger venues such as La Salles, and playing cancer and African relief benefit shows with now well-established clothing line Meddy Clothing and sharing the stage with the likes of As I Lay Dying, Kutless, and MxPx.
Not a bit unaware of the music business, Ashley Rubanoff, Tyler Devoll and Jeff Lawrence grew up together and were once members of Chico, California’s punk rock band Blue Slip on Devil Kat Records. The band recorded three albums and toured the west coast. After a change in goals the band lost a member and the remaining members moved to Southern California to regroup and redefine their sound and image under our new name S.A.T.O.R.I. San Diego is where the band picked up Brian Jensen, who toured South America with a Christian Rock band playing cities such as Buenos Aires, Argentina; Montevideo, Uruguay; and Foz do Iguacu, Brazil
After the birth of S.A.T.O.R.I. our loyal fans inspired and encouraged us to join forces with Producer Jay Short of Fat Cat Records and record our first EP "So Free." Again, hitting up the north – northwest tour S.A.T.O.R.I. won recognition with the radio stations and “So Free” has graced the airwaves
We brought in the New Year with a bang opening for Seattle’s own Floater in our hometown of Chico selling out a 1400 ticket venue. Local Radio station Zrock said "best local turn out Chico has seen." We later picked up a Clothing sponsorship through Meddy Clothing, which has doubled our fan base and introduced us to great contacts. After realizing where we want to be as a group, making steps like these creates a determination that won’t let anything stop us.
We are currently working on finishing our album and looking forward to taking it on the road. We made our EP; we got some really intense results. Now we want to rock the full-length album on tour and making appearances with MxPx and Mike Herarra’s new country project Tumbledown. We are also building a new website for fans to get info and stay hip to the band while on tour. Our new CD and Merchandise will also be available on the site www.satorirock.com
. After the New Year we will be working with C-Rob Films and shooting our first music video to put on our website and on DVD.
With large goals in store, and a hard work ethic the band continues to enjoy loaded schedules and what Southern California and the rest of the world has in store for us. A New Year brings a new album and attitude to the west coast filled with a DVD of high energy penetrating the crowd’s excitement and passion every step of the way. Our drive passion and relentless work ethic will pave the way to our future successes.
