TRS HIGH RES PIC

 

 

…a classic rock-influenced, high energy affair filled with big hooks and frenzied riffs.” – Central Track

 

 

There’s a reason legions of young rock fans fall in love with their parents’ records. It’s the same
reason so many radio stations still play classic rock: Great music never gets old. Dallas foursome
the Roomsounds have studied those classics, of course — the Beatles, Stones and Tom Petty &
the Heartbreakers are major influences, along with Big Star, the Black Crowes, Ryan Adams,
Oasis and the Jayhawks. But lead singer/guitarist Ryan Michael, guitarist/vocalist Sam Janik,
bassist/vocalist Red Coker and drummer Dan Malone make their own sound, as evidenced by
their new single, “Lay My Head Down,” a rocker with a bluesy southern tinge that’s almost
a manifesto about the healing power of rock ’n’ roll. Recorded in Muscle Shoals, Ala., at the
legendary FAME Studios, the song captures the spirit of those who’ve been there before, from
Aretha Franklin and Wilson Pickett to Duane Allman.
Like their heroes, The Roomsounds craft songs durable enough to become tomorrow’s classics.
Rodney Hall, son of FAME founder Rick Hall, has already labeled them “the future of rock ’n’
roll.” Clearly, it’s in good hands.
