There is a rich musical heritage at the heart of The Room’s progressive tinged rock - a combination of impressive musicianship, catchy hooks and thought-provoking lyrics. Formed late in 2010, the band performed four hugely successful launch shows including a support slot for the legendary Wishbone Ash.
The release of their acclaimed debut album, ‘Open Fire’, followed in December 2012. Steve Anderson (guitar), Steve Checkley (keyboards), Andy Rowe (bass) and Martin Wilson (vocals) were joined by drummer Chris York in 2013, who replaced original stick man Andrew Rae.
Having joined Bad Elephant Music in 2015, and following the launch of the digital single ‘Carrie’ in June, the guys have since been hard at work on their sophomore release.
“As debuts go, ‘Open Fire’ is an impressive and lasting statement. If you have a love of enigmatic music that merges the boundaries between AOR, prog and melodic rock, then you need to become acquainted with The Room.” – Fireworks Magazine (UK)
