Ambient, arresting, and disturbingly addictive, Ramona the Pest delivers razor sharp songs with conviction and without apology. RTP blends such influences as the Pixies and PJ Harvey with their own appetite for the atmospheric to create a sound sometimes compared to the legendary Patti Smith and Kristen Hersh. Emotionally potent, Ramona the Pest could be the soundtrack to your heartbreak or it just might be the remedy.
Cofounders Valerie Esway and Lucio
Menegon have managed to create a tight, professional pop act since
modest beginnings in 1996 as an acoustic duo. The years of shows, tours
and albums have seen RTP morph stylistically yet always offer a distinct,
original sound. Fans from coast to coast have been drawn to their magnetically
mischievous shows, adding to the chorus of rave reviews from critics,
talent buyers and audiences in rock clubs, coffeehouses and all ages venues.
