Planet Radio is thrilled to announce the release of their sophomore album, “Stay Awake.” Completed at The Bridge Sound and Stage in Cambridge, MA, Planet Radio’s latest effort has rich production elements and a hard hitting sound that elevates the energy of their original music.
Coming together first as a group of friends and professionals looking to experiment musically, Planet Radio, now 4 years later and after a debut release in 2016, is a premiere live performance group at the forefront of the Boston scene. The group is made up of alumni and professors of New England Conservatory and Berklee College of Music. Individual band members’ side projects span jazz, hip hop, and world music, and members of Planet Radio have shared the stage with such legends as Dave Brubeck, Ledisi, Lionel Loueke and 50 Cent.
