BACK ROADS is a Classic Rock band founded in France (Lyon) in 2011 by Sylvaine Deschamps-Garcia (vocals), Fabrice Dutour (Guitar), Christophe Oliveres (Guitar), Franck Mortreux (bass) and Nicolas Ammollo (Drums).
Our line-up has been initially strengthened on stages during a two-years project focused on Blues/Rock covers (Joe Bonamassa, Gov't Mule, Led Zeppelin, Janis Joplin, Thin Lizzy ...), then we naturally move towards our own compositions at the beginning of 2013. Our first album was entirely self-produced in 2014. It includes 11 original songs recorded and mixed at the Noisefirm studio (Amberieu en Bugey, France) and mastered at the HOFA studio (Karlsdorf, Germany). It is now offer in free listening on our Youtube Channel.
Teaser of the first album.
As shown in our Press-Book, this first album was well received by the specialised press, including among others the Blues Magazine, the webzine Hard Force, and the Deblocnot chronicle for the 2nd album of the year 2014. We could also measure this growing interest through the public meetings in each live concert, including that of the Festiverbant Festival (Geneva) where Back Roads opened with a great pleasure the show for Band of Friends, ex-musicians of Rory Gallagher.
To continue this story BACK ROADS are preparing their 2nd album and this is where we need you !!
We have with us the sound-engineer Sylvain De Nicola who has already worked on the first album. Sylvain knows what our expectations are, and he has therefore our complete confidence. We have with us the recording Studio la Ruche, a wonderful place to work day-to-day on an explosive sound. But, we lack 53% of resources to achieve this project. The interactions and exchanges that we have had with you over the past two years, via the concerts and our Facebook page, give us hope that you will be with us in this new adventure. If so, your will have nice counterparts and your name will appear as a contributor in the booklet of this new album.
We plan to step into the recording studio on October 2016, here is just a sample of what awaits you…
