Life has not been the same for THE RANSOM COLLECTIVE since it emerged the winner in Wanderband, a national competition among up-and-coming acts. That was three years ago. The six-piece indie folk band soon found itself playing throughout Manila, introducing its distinctive sound that merges unique percussive patterns, acoustic guitar-driven leads, melodic violin phases and full vocal. The Ransom Collective’s self-titled EP was released in November 2014, followed by full-length album Traces in May 2017. Both received high praise from music critics and peers.
