Yellow Fields

BIO: The Rice Cakes are equal parts keyboardist and vocalist Roz Raskin, bassist Justin Foster, and drummer Casey Belisle.  The eclectic trio was recently named Best Local Act of 2010 by the Providence Phoneix and mixes an energized stage show with a unique sound using a variety of instruments including Fender Rhodes, glockenspiel, tape distortion, and guitar. 
On September 11th, the Rice Cakes released their new EP Feel Like Human to a soldout crowd in Providence at Firehouse 13.  The EP was self-recorded, self-produced, and released on 10 inch records through Moose Proof.  With a full-length album and 2 EP under their belt, the group continues to tour and heat up airways with the single “Yellow Fields.  Isaac Paris of Performer Magazine summed up the band in saying, “The Rice Cakes deliver a captivating combination of powerful drums, a soulful voice, and great songs”.  Check it out for yourself!
