Sieving through the ashes of west coast noise, you’ll find a voracious few urgently seeking an outlet for truthful melody…
“Roman Alexander and The Robbery”
Roman Alexander, a singer/songwriter out of Orange County California, began experimenting with songwriting at the age of eighteen. After about 3 years of ignoring his obvious call to the music, he was diagnosed with a high risk brain condition curable only by brain surgery. Following such an eye-opening experience, he realized that it was time to put both feet in the door. He then set out to find a faithful few who would assist him in feeding it to the masses. While recording some of his earlier songs, he ran into a “Funky white dude” by the name of Ryan Reno (Bassist). Ryan and Roman immediately see a need to continue on such a promising project.
Meanwhile 2,472 miles east, a drummer by the name of Jeff Carruth decides that it was time to leave his home state of Florida, to pursue the only thing ever promised to him in life… Music. One night, while visiting a local Orange County venue, Jeff hears a faint yelling in the distance asking, “Does anybody know of any drummers in the area?". Jeff is then introduced to Roman…in a Serendipitous twist of fate a talented guitarist by the name of Matt McDavid is unavoidably faced with a tough decision: would he commit to reggae, rock, or blues? He them meets this group of kids that do it all...
“Roman Alexander and the Robbery”.
“Roman Alexander”, the voice with the message, and “The Robbery”, a roar demanding its right to be heard, is a fusion of four very optimistic views on life, music, and the truth that exists within them. Combining Soul, Blues, Reggae, and Rock, they expect nothing short of jolting their world and yours, through music.
