“Reality Suite is a bit of a New Jersey super-group. Their fusion of modern and classic rock is a fairly compelling mix since they really don’t sound like any other indie band I can think of," stated Jim Testa, contributing writer to Rolling Stone magazine and founder of Jersey Beat fanzine. Formed in North Haledon, New Jersey in 2013 by childhood friends Brian King (drums,) Antonio Valenti (bass,) and Joe Padula (guitars) – their ambitions have been to produce heavy, melodic rock. After several male and female vocalists, Kimmii Heart joined establishing the definitive line-up known today worldwide. Their self-produced 2015 debut album, “Skinn” (4K Deep Records) established the band and became a social media sensation. Tracks “Wingman,” “Die Dreaming,” and “Playing with Fire” remain to be fan favorites. The success of their debut led to the relationship with two-time Grammy nominated Mixing/Recording Engineer, Mike Ferretti (Sevendust, Saliva) and Earl Cohen (Lady Gaga, Jessica Simpson) for their second critically acclaimed album, Awaken (Lions Pride Music). Released on a Danish independent label, Reality Suite had a more intense international marketing campaign. The single, “Kiss the Ring” has received the most international praise in addition to tracks “Dead to Me,” “Bury Me Alive” and “Cut, Burn, Bruise.”
