Splashing Violet is back on the stage!! 

Greetings everyone, 

Splashing Violet is coming back to the stage with a new band line up, these are exciting times and awesome new adventures.  So join us in welcoming Flip Mortorano as our new bass player and John Kretzu as our new lead guitarist.

If you need a refresher course on what we do, it goes something like this. Splashing Violet is a popular New Jersey band with an impressive catalog of songs written by singer/songwriter Lisa Cavallaro. 

The group is making a big impression with their catchy pop rock tunes and their overall marketing appeal. This band has style, taste, and is making a splash in the music community. 

While commonly labeled as a pop rock band, Splashing Violet is influenced by many bands, but Lisa has cited The Smashing Pumpkins as a major influence, in addition to The Monkees. 

The group  was nominated for Video of the Year at the 93.7 WSTW Homey Awards for their music video "Angel Eyes in 2014."  and the band has played many venues from The Legendary Dobbs to The Stone Pony and is sponsored by Guitar Center, AMI Clubwear and Power Bomb Radio. 

The band is currently rehearsing for upcoming shows, working on new music and has recently released a vinyl single of their song "Plastic." Available now in records stores across the country. For show updates and news visit their website  http://www.splashingviolet.com or follow them on Twitter @splashingviolet or Facebook facebook.com/splashingviolet 

Looking forward to seeing you at our upcoming shows, stay tuned!

Splashing Violet is now on vinyl!!!  

Hey Splashers,

I hope 2015 has been treating you well!! It's be a long time coming, but the Splashing Violet 45 single on colored vinyl is now available.   You can purchase the 45' single now and you can also order the bundle including the picture book.  Hurry while supplies last, this offer is only available for a limited time!
So, as you know, the music industry is not what it used to be and many talented bands are left with no record label to promote them. Some may say that's a good thing because they rip off the artists... but record companies had a job to do and they had the reach and power to promote a band properly. So, with that said,  we took it upon ourselves to invest in our music and the band and decided to put Splashing Violet on vinyl. We didn't do it to make money because their is no way it will even equal out. Vinyl is so expensive to press these days because it's rare and we were lucky to find a company nearby that allowed an indie band to even do this.  We did this because we always wanted to do this, but we also did it for the Splashing Violet fans. We believe you deserve more than just a download or a computer file. You deserve to have something to call your own, something you can listen to the way we intended for you to hear our music. We didn't spend hours in the studio just so you can hear us on shitty phone speakers or computer speakers. WE make music and music is what we want you to hear.


You can order just the 45' single of Plastic at www.splashingviolet.com or you can also get the bundle that includes the Splashing Violet picture book as well. The single itself is $9.99 plus shipping... the b-side track is called "Ugly" for other pricing please visit the website.


If you are a west coast fan, please check out these awesome record store in L.A. that will be carrying our single!!  Support your local records stores!!  More stores in other regions will be listed soon, stay tuned.

Thank you for your ongoing support of Splashing Violet~ We wanted to give our fans and music lovers something to hold onto and what better than a vinyl record! As a music lover myself, I have always loved the sound, look, and feel of a record.  The artwork draws your attention and the music has a warm and inviting tone. Many recording artists and bands today work really hard to capture that perfect sound in the studio and sadly with the mp3's of today a lot of that sound is lost. The future of music will depend on what worked in the past. Records allowed us to truly hear music, it gave value to our beloved bands, and it really taught us to appreciate musicianship.
