Satsang is a Conscious Music Collective blending world conscious lyrics with a unique blend of Folk, Soul, Indie Rock, and Hip-Hop. Satsang seems to have something for every musical palate. The lyrics come from and are rooted in change, growth, awareness, and imperfection, and are used as a mission statement for reflection, growth, and activation. Touching on everything from the bliss of traveling and the growing pains of change: to societal ills and civil rights. The live show is everything that the band name suggests: A gathering of people to assimilate and share their truths. The rhythms and energy put forth by the band keep everyone on their feet, and the lyrics leave them craving active and immediate change. Satsang has toured all over the country and has shared the stage with the likes of Steel Pulse, Nahko and Medicine for the People, Trevor Hall, Wookiefoot, Mike Love, and many more. “It still amazes me how far they have come in such a short period of time. With a very dedicated fan base and a lot of respect in the music community amongst other artists, Satsang is a band to watch closely. ” – GratefulWeb
Rob Riccardo is a Phoenix-based singer/songwriter who plays original acoustic roots music and is most passionate about the messages within his songs. Born and raised on the shores of Long Island, New York, the foundation of his songwriting career derives from the surf scene of his formative years on the east coast where he discovered the music of conscious artists like Jack Johnson, John Butler, Xavier Rudd and Ben Harper.
Before relocating to the Arizona desert, Rob’s wife introduced him to yoga, which would become somewhat of a supplement for the soulful reflections he used to experience on his surfboard in the Atlantic beach breaks of his youth. Now drawing inspiration from his yoga and meditation practice, the artists that he grew up on, and his deep connection to the environment, Rob has developed his own unique blend of folk, rock, reggae and soul music infused with a heavy serving of conscious lyrics. It’s his mission to use his musical platform to spread positive messages and bring to light soulfully and socially mindful themes.
Rob released his debut full-length album The Calm Within on June 19, 2017, receiving an amazing response from listeners around his home base of Phoenix and beyond. Spotify selected two songs from the album, “Let It Breathe” and “Adventure of Me,” for its Discover Weekly playlists, resulting in thousands of new fans across nearly 60 countries.
Rob quickly followed up his debut release with a five-song EP, Elemental Awareness, on November 10, 2017. He is currently in the studio recording his second full-length album, Seeker, due out late summer 2018.
