MARELLA

Marella is an Alternative Rock band that was founded in Santa Barbara, California but is now permanently based out of Los Angeles. Daniel Marella is the singer, songwriter, and lead of his own project where he teamed up with producer Max Bienert and mix engineer Carter Jahn to create his highly anticipated debut full length album set to release in June. 
 
This project stemmed from his formal music education where he felt that modern music was not taken seriously, nor taught at the appropriate university level. His reaction to this negligence is a 13-song album called "Posterboy". The album's contents include songs about his past relationships, imposter syndrome, and growing up. The album was written in the Brandenburg house in Isla Vista, California. Daniel resided at the Burg for 2 years during his time at UCSB overlooking the ocean while living with his best friends. You can hear the 90's and 2000's influence bleed through the record along with its authentic and honest lyrics, crushing guitars, and tight drums. Unlike most artists, Daniel plays and performs most of the instruments and musical parts you hear on this record. 
 
Daniel met his live band members through the UCSB jazz program, where he used to play drums under the direction and mentorship of Jon Nathan. He credits this program as one that pushed his musical limits and where he has met some of his lifelong best friends.
