He describes his original music as “alternative folk.” Prevailing lyrical themes include reverence for the natural world and spirituality (he lived as a monk for a time in Oregon). “There’s an organic nature to what I’m trying to write about,” Raba says, noting he’s been shaped by “underground all-ages punk music.”Raba’s formative influences include Jackmormans founder Jerry Joseph and Chris Whitley.

He took a break from music for several years before jumping back in at age 25, and he subsequently worked with local groups such as Bent Elephant, Shadowhand, and Bridgebuilder. Nine years ago Raba started to learn guitar as a tool for writing music.
