Craft Spells

#sxsw #CraftSpells


In the cold and dreary winter of 2009, alone in his bedroom and hidden from the darkness of the world outside Justin Paul Vallesteros had begun working on something that would change his life forever. What began as a couple notes played in experimentation soon transformed into vibrant melodies that soon shook Vallesteros' musical foundation to the core. Guitar chords laced over pulse sating synth melodies and drum rhythms was a departure from Justin's previous work; he began to create the dreamy nostalgic pop music that is Craft Spells. Joined by Jack Smith (bass), Javier Suarez (lead guitar) and Peter Michel (drums), they recently returned from a European tour and plan on releasing a new ep February 2012.
