The three founding members, Bill and John Storch , and Ron DeSaram became friends in the early days of South Florida’s small ‘alternative’ (punk / new wave) music scene. Ron, and Craven bassist Dennis Ambrose, were members of what would become Crossfire Choir and The Storch brothers members of what would be Ata-Tat. Both bands would move from Florida in 1983 for more fertile terrain. Ata-Tat, a mainstay of the Boston indie scene, would have regional success in New England with their E.P. released in 1986 . Crossfire Choir, managed by C.B.G.B. owner Hilly Kristal, would go on to sign a recording contract with Geffen Records and have albums produced by Steve Lillywhite and Ed Stasium. Dennis Ambrose, who was with Crossfire until the group disbanded in 1995, was also a member of indie rock faves Let's Active and The Grip Weeds. The Storch brothers and DeSaram teamed up numerous times throughout the years, including The Sewing Circle Sues and Jobee Ro. The Cravens formed as a trio in 2013. By 2016, the group enlisted Ron’s high school friend Bill Meredith (Sub Groove ) on drums & the line-up was complete. The Cravens are recorded & engineered by Michael Seaman, known for his work with John Ralston .
