Genaro were a four piece band from Carluke, near Glasgow.
Their unique style lies in the emotive ability to mix pathos, humour, love and politics with melodies that seize even the most casual listener: from classic guitar pop to FX driven workouts.
They played regularly around Scotland including Go North 2006, Musicworks 2005, King Tuts, The Edinburgh Spectrum Festival, T-Break, Glasgow Art College, The Tunnels (Aberdeen) and the QMU. They were invited to play In The City 2004 in Manchester in September 2004, and kicked off the Benbecula Records Showcase at The Arches in October, headlined by Robin Guthrie of The Cocteau Twins.
In February 2006 they recorded their debut album for Benbecula (part funded by the Scottish Arts Council). The album was well received by press : MusicOMH 5/5, TinyMixTapes 4/5, The List 4/5, The Skinny 4/5.
After disbanding in 2008 they have since had tracks featured in the Emmy award winning documentary King Lines, and more recently in the BBC show Being Human.
