We are pleased to announce the formal addition of Vasco Asturiano to the Cure for Gravity Line-Up! Vasco debuted with Cure for Gravity in November 2016 at our album release show at The Ivy Room in Albany, CA. Since then he's been heavily entrenched in the writing process as we are preparing material for the full-length follow-up to our debut EP released in October last year.
Here's a bit about Vasco:
Born in 1976, Vasco Asturiano first picked up a guitar aged 17 and couldn’t put it down. Two years later he discovered the world of bass and hasn’t looked back since.
With an aptitude for versatility, Vasco’s experience spans opposite ends of the music spectrum and has landed him positions in a wide variety of bands, from Days After the Storm, a Netherlands-based alternative rock five-piece to Amistad, a modern Flamenco ensemble, from the Morphine cover band Night Shark to Ever After Strides, a Bay Area 3-piece rock band.
In 2005, he was accepted onto the Jazz Bass course at the prestigious Amsterdam Music Conservatory in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, graduating in 2008. In 2012, his band Gorgeous George, a high-profile Amsterdam-based Indie cover band, won first prize in the National Battle of the Cover Bands.
Over the years, Vasco has toured with various bands throughout the United States, England, France, Portugal and the Netherlands. Most recently he opened up for L.A. Guns at Los Angeles’ iconic Whiskey a Go-Go with San Diego-based rock band Permacrush.
