ROADS is a Classic rock band formed in 2012 by Franck Mortreux (Bass),
Fabrice Dutour (Guitar), Sylvaine Deschamps-Garcia (Chant), Christophe
Oliveres (Guitar), and Nicolas Ammollo (Drums). These five experienced
musicians first gathered around a project featuring covers of Joe
Bonamassa, Gov't Mule, Led Zeppelin, Janis Joplin and Thin Lizzy.
Multiple stages consolidated the line-up for finally orienting the band
towards their own compositions, which were the main objectives of 2013.
The first album appeared on February 2014 with 11 original tracks on CD
and vinyl records. The album was very well received by both the
Blues/Rock and Hard/Rock press such as Blues Magasine and Hard Force.
BACK ROADS made around twenty gigs in 2015 including the opening gig for
the Band of Friends (ex-Rory Gallagher musicians) at the festival
Festiverbant in Geneva. The year 2016 was shared between concerts and
studio sessions for recording the second album in which 10 new titles
have emerged on october with typical warm and punchy tones of 70’s
served by a modern production.
