I sing. I play guitar. What more do you want.
I decided to start a band in 2015 with Vihan, Aura, and Robbie. They liked the idea, and we started jamming together. The band’s changed a bit, but we all have the same love for music.
Okay, so it all started when Vihan said the chemistry hot plates look like guitar pedals. The rest is history.
Until age 11, music was always something that I liked but never played. I jokingly told Arkam and Vihan I could play bass for them. Turns out it’s not that hard.
I’ve been playing music all my life: piano at age 4, saxophone at 11, and drums at 12. AVRA was looking for a drummer online. I thought it was for one gig so I signed up. It was more than one gig.
He’s with us in spirit!
Get it… Because he’s a spirit.
Here are some of the logos we considered when first starting our band. We knew from the start we wanted a black/white theme, but that was it.
Tentative looks into our first logo, before David Gallo and Mihailo Krstic joined AVRA.
Back when the band was first made, we were debating naming the band “AVRA” but pronouncing it “AURA”, hence this early logo.
We were into the hand-drawn look. This logo was easy to read and playful. We liked how it represented the band, so we kept it for a while.
More of a playful option, we were looking at adding some colour to our band. We reversed the V but kept the same font as before. We didn’t use it though.
We tried to go for a more Rock look, and came up with a few options. Two are pictured here. We used the bottom one for a while, but eventually decided both options were too illegible.
Our final choice was to keep the same theme but make it more legible and fun by detaching and slanting the ‘R’. We also reverted to our white-on-black scheme. We’ve kept and loved this logo to date.
