St Aria – New Dawn
A band focusing on the core of rock and metal ballads. St. Aria is a musical project formed by Alexander Platon during the late 2000’s. It was influenced by a desire to create emotionally resounding rock ballads, inspired by artists such as Evanescence, Within Temptation and Nightwish.
The music and lyrics are largely autobiographical and poetic in nature, written by Platon with assistance from Ferhm. The band has added the hard rock sound of Sixx:A.M., Apocalyptica and The Rasmus to their own.
The band are at the moment consisting of the two original members Alexander Platon (composer, lyrics, piano), Jimmy Ferhm (composer, vocals, guitar) and the new members Oliver Sandberg (drums), Erik Jönsson (bass, vocals), and Jacqueline Hansson (vocals).
