Rafael Tranquilino is an award winning guitarist melding his Mexican roots with American roots. Coming from Mexico by himself and making his way here in the music industry, he was awarded as the #1 Blues Band for Washington State and his vocalist Leah Tussing was also awarded as the best jazz/blues vocalist 2014-2015.
An instrumental power house of guitar, bass, and drums with vocals that fuse rock, blues and funk in an alternative invocation of crossroads; past, present, and future. Tranqulino was born and raised in Mexico City. He plays the old fashioned Delta slide. His music is hypnotic; it has wings, lifting listeners to where the tension is on purpose to linger in the resistance before set free in sweet relief. RTB is a rocket ship ride going full speed through layers of atmosphere into outer space, but they deliver, and listeners will transcend from the ride.
