Burned In Braille
In early 2019, Deven Starr had a lucid dream about being on stage in front of thousands of people. As he turned around to assess the situation - he realized that his friend, Michael Casella II, was on the drums. Behind Michael was a big banner with a smokey/celestial logo with the words “Burned In Braille” on it. Deven assumed “Nice, we must be opening for this band! That’s a pretty sweet band name.” Then, as he looked back towards Michael - that same logo was on his kick drum. He then realized “Oh wait, that's us!”. After a comedic phone call to Micheal in a half-awaken stupor explaining the dream - Burned In Braille was officially born. Deven and Michael (McSquared90 on TikTok) had performed together for a few years and had recently started working in the studio with their friend and guitarist/vocalist, Daniel Guanchez. Daniel mentioned a childhood friend of his from Venezuela, Gabriel Gutierrez, was moving to the area and was a very talented bassist who was looking to join a creative project. It only took writing/practicing one song to realize that this band has a special chemistry. BIB is complete with the invaluable work and help of Carter Crick with videos and live performance lighting. Two years, and a worldwide pandemic later - we are Burned In Braille.
