The band Road to Oblivion with its debut release “Something to Say” is a
dynamic Americana song style collection performed by a powerhouse electric
“Something to Say” is a deftly woven tapestry of musical colors. A
craftsmanship tailor made with honeysuckle vocal harmonies, thick southern
lead guitars, lively piano and B3 accompaniment all punctuated by a solid
bass bottom and the hard-hitting backbeats of rock-n-roll . The journey
taken with the “Road” also visits a contemplative landscape of bluegrass
fiddle, juke-joint sax and the breakneck howl of a blues harp.
Penned by RTO`s founders Mark Bertini, Neil Goes and Alexandra Higgins
“Something to Say” spans wide vistas of contemporary musical vernacular,
politically-minded statements and internal dialogues . The duos vision is a
songwriting ethos of an American experience lived first-hand, confidently
rooted in the blues, Latin groove and 70`s rock influence wedged comfortably
into a Alt-Country frame of being. Alex Higgins delivers this 12 song tale
with a stunning vocal performance of chilling sensitivity to downright “move
it or lose it” raw attitude leaving no doubt of this debut’s title.
In October 2008 the band filmed it’s first video for the chilling ballad
“Still in Love With You”. The song deals with the age old story of love and
lost and features in it Higgins’ many art works which call to mind the multi
faceted artistry of Joni Mitchell or Christine McVie.
2009 has seen a few line up changes for the group but the trio continues to
venture forth in creativity by writing,rehearsing and recording for their
2009 sophmore follow-up “Ride or Fly”.
