About the Band
Live on stage Helena takes the lead with her theatrical interpretations. Her delivery is distinctive and cheeky. Maryanne compliments this with her soulful yet delicate voice and harmonious backings. Together Rezzalp` create a sound that is headed in their own direction of pop music which is described as Theatrical POP. The bands' live set includes 3 keyboards and a piano if it's available, violin, bass, flute, vocals, and drums.
Together they compose, arrange, write and produce their songs. Sometimes together and other times separately. Combined they are trained in many aspects of performance, theatre, dance, classical piano and music, their influences begin with the Masters.
But their parents were to blame being very musical, their father played in an Italian Folk Band on piano Accordian and also plays piano and their mother a pianist also. Even further back ironically the great aunts were also in a band. 4 sisters. So I guess it's genetic.

Rezzalp began rehearsals for the group by meeting regularly at Ian Sandercoe's Rehearsal Space at The Old Mill in Ballarat Australia. The groups original material was rehearsed and initially recorded by Ian Sandercoe. Rezzalp performed at the Rehearsal Space Showcase in December 2003.
