“Sixty-six steps carved of solid limestone descend into darkness;
a thick overcoat of trees surrounds the passage creating a cool area during the hottest days.”
66 Steps set out to take you on a heavy and hypnotic tour through the dark side of human existence. Chloe Trujillo (vocals), Robert Rivas (guitar, beats), David Collupy (bass, beats) have crafted a unique sound from a variety of influences that draws the listener into their audible world of gray.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Rivas draws influence from his favorite bands in a variety of genres from heavy to melodic and organic to electronic. He is also inspired by films & literature of the macabre. Whispering or screaming, Rivas’ guitar playing with 66 Steps will mesmerize you while his beats pulverize you.
Trujillo hails from the magnificent city of Paris (also known for its claustrophobic catacombs of death and despair); she was raised by fashion designer parents and an opera singer grandfather, surrounded by music, beauty, art and design. Trujillo now lives in Los Angeles with her husband, musician Robert Trujillo, and their two children. She balances her time between art, music and fashion, infusing each piece and project with the love and excitement she feels while creating. Within 66 Steps, she casts her beautifully haunting voice into the psyche of those that listen.
Originally from New England, Collupy is wanted in several states across the country for multiple counts of “noise disturbance with a low-end instrument.” With a slant toward the unorthodox, he stays immersed in a variety of creative media projects involving music, film, and more. When 66 Steps needs that rumble and boom from the underworld, Collupy is glad to oblige.
