So....what in the world is this album all about? What will it sound like? And why a concept album? The story introduces a character named "Indigo". She is trapped in present day Corporate America, in a city she doesn't know, a job she doesn't like and a path that wasn't meant for her.

"EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN" IS AVAILABLE NOW!
Stavo is a band that moves beyond the 90's hard rock it plays, stylistically and actually. To have it make sense, you'd have to add a few more years to the celebrated decade — like, say, 19911 or 19912. And even then it would be hard to paint this band accurately — which works fine for this enigmatic outfit. The music on the band's debut EP, "Everything in Between," sheds some light on where the EP is coming from and where it's going. Primarily, there's the dichotomy between Sharon Kaplun's vocals and Dan Staversky's guitar that gets it all underway and maintains its speed. The whole band flies melodically in the face of its own pending weight. Stavo moves flawlessly, effortlessly, and fine. A good first effort. Strong.
