The first single from the album, “Happy Hour”, is an uptempo dance record riddled with lyrical punchlines and a catchy chorus. The official music video for the song premiered on URBANO’s Youtube channel recently.
Working with several producers to capture their unique sound, URBANO brings about a genuine representation of artistic creativity. Fueled by their passion for music and unbreakable bond, the pair set out to deliver music for everyone to enjoy.
Consisting of John and Marisa Urbano, the siblings were drawn to music at a young age. Growing up in the suburbs of Philadelphia, this duo realized their gift and started to pursue solo music careers. John started recording his raps at Studio 4, located in Conshohocken. At the age of 16, he began working with stellar producer and engineer, Will Yip.
Following in her younger brother’s footsteps, Ris started her singing career, recording her songs at Studio 4 with Will. With every step in the learning process, they networked with many different producers, engineers, and other artists such as Huey Mack, Reed Dollaz, Danimal Lector and Jitta On The Track.
Influenced by the likes of Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Brandy, Ludacris, Cassidy, Timbaland, and Pitbull to name a few, URBANO delivers a high energy presence of modern sounds. With their powerful mix of tunes just right for pop culture, the brother and sister duo is bringing their passion to the masses.
