Réaul is an American pop rock band from Indianapolis, Indiana. The band's music and sound is a unique blend of influences, including pop, rock, country...and even some edm. Réaul's energetic live show and recent success has lead them to share the stage with some of today's brightest stars such as: Demi Lovato, Rhianna, Joe Jonas (DNCE), Plain White T's, My Chemical Romance, Black Stone Cherry, and Cavo.
Réaul has 7 releases to date, with more music dropping throughout 2016 and 2017. The band's approach going into the latest set of releases, was to create fantastic songs that were not confined to a certain genre. Rick explains, "We didn't want to be confined to the genre of our previous releases. We've adapted and evolved as musicians and sometimes the best way to express a song is in a genre that is different than what your fans know you for. We wanted to take them with us on our journey."
The band was formed by lead vocalist / songwriter Rick Connell and bassist Michael Neeley in late 2006. As Michael explains, "Rick and I had played in other bands growing up, but when we got together we knew there was something incredibly special about the music we were creating...and we wanted to share it with the world." The rest of the band filled in quickly when Réaul brought on-board Nate Metzler (Drums) and Dave Kriebel (Lead Guitar).
Réaul's first release, a self-titled 3 song EP, came out December 5th, 2007. The band followed up with "Take Me Away," a single release to iTunes and Amazon in October 2009. The "Casino Heart" EP hit shelves May 24th, 2011 and put the band out on the road. Starting in May of 2016, Réaul started releasing new singles, which to date, have been the most diverse and well crafted songs they have ever created.
