The Spring

Melbourne, FL

Founding members Manny Fawcett (Rhythm Guitar/vocals) and Matthew Rigsby (Lead/vocals) fused together their two vastly different guitar and writing styles to create a unique sound that permeated throughout Brevard County’s music scene. Adding Levi Tate on percussion and Gabe Ottomanelli on bass, they have been consistently performing throughout Central and Southern Florida. They teamed up with the producers at Rocky Water Studios to release their premiere EP, "Ebb and Flow", in the Summer of 2018. rnative genre, paved way for the writing style that you hear now in The Spring’s writings. Beautiful melody lines, mixed with colorful leads, that push through your speakers and make it hard not to sing along. Prior to The Spring, Manny performed with a group called The Civil Ties. Matthew Rigsby grew up listening to classic rock and playing in cover bands throughout his adolescence. After engaging with the cover band scene for a time, Matthew joined up with Manny to explore original music. Coupling a grittier tone with the rest of the group’s melodic phrasing was a perfect match for a unique sound. Formerly performing in The Civil Ties, Levi Tate reunited with Manny after a short stint in California. After taking two years off and away from music, he moved back and began performing and recording with the band. His genuine style of drumming compliments the various other sounds with warm, full-bodied fills and rhythms. Gabriel Ottomanelli shares the burning desire for music. He has a wide musical background from being a DJ and playing in various bands across genres such as classical, rock, and country. With Gabe's dedication to the craft and thumping bass lines, he really brings the best out of every tune.
