Meet Gabe Saporta and Ryland Blackinton from NYC based Cobra Starship. The band is currently riding high in the charts with their third album 'Hot Mess' and the hit single Good Girls Go Bad, featuring Gossip Girl start Leighton Meester.
We went to New Jersey to meet with Gabe and Ryland in the studio as they were putting final touches to the album. We got to talk to them about their use of Reason in songwriting and production and they also did an introduction demo for the beginner. Being pretty new to the Reason way of working they wanted to show other beginners how to get going. In their own way.

Cobra Starship burst into existance after Gabe Saporta landed a successful song (Bring it, (snakes on a plane)) on the soundtrack to the movie Snakes on a Plane. Following the success of the soundtrack, Gabe (formerly bass player/vocalist from the band Midtown) decided to put a band together.
After three albums and endless touring in the US and overseas, Cobra Starship has created a cult following through their energetic live performances and their pop/punk/electronic stew of music.
