Trio Auralis features two keyboardists and a drummer. That's it. Keyboardists Chetan Tierra (left) and Jonathan Cernan are both classically trained Cleveland Institute of Music alums, and Tierra has performed at Carnegie Hall. But their show's no piano recital. They cover Tool's "Sober" and Billy Joel's "She's Got a Way," but the bulk of their sets are made up of originals. "It's like Keane and Coldplay, with a little Tool mixed in," says manager David Stair. And the group's so new, it doesn't even have a website yet, so you'll just have to see and hear it for yourself.
