The Routine



Hailing from San Diego, California, The Routine is a five-piece rock collective that defies categorization in today’s genre-driven media cloud. A sonic melting pot of electric blues, soul and world styling, they are not simply a band—and they are anything but “routine”. Russell Ramo, guitar player and son of Syrian immigrants, explains, “Just by looking at us, you see the story of global artistic culture: Black, White, European, Middle Eastern and Latino. We epitomize diversity and the strength of its unity. Each of us contributes a unique flavor, while still respecting the unified sound of empowering and uplifting music.”

In July of 2013, just two months after forming, The Routine recorded an exploratory demo. Since then, they have enjoyed rapid ascension into the esteemed ranks of the California indie music scene. The demo attracted thousands of new fans to their Bandcamp page, earning them live slots in the state’s most notorious venues: The Boom Boom Room (San Francisco), The Roxy (Los Angeles) and The Casbah (San Diego). On April 5, 2014, The Routine inspired crowds on the main stage of the V Elements Festival in San Diego, in support of their inaugural EP, Welcome, which promises to greet the band with success in the touring mainstream.
