With just two members, the BLACKROS3 duo utilizes their skills in multiple instruments to record and layer tracks, as well as inviting guest performers to create powerful and engaging live performances with the essence of that full-band punch.
BLACKROS3 means a lot of things to us. This ranges from card games, to memorable songs, to some general coolness. A major connection is our love of the Yu-Gi-Oh card game. This interest of ours stems back to our childhoods where Michael competed competitively and Vanessa focused her plant deck around the Black Rose Dragon card. In a more musical connection, Rose by Anna Tsuchiya (from the anime Nana) was a staple song in both of our previous band’s set, and became something we quickly identified to.
We aim to keep playing and bringing smiles to peoples faces. We want to continue to grow, inspire, and play music that we love.
