So here is my take on The Road Heavy. Here is a band that I have seen a quite a few times now, and I have been watching them grow and rise. The Road Heavy are a band who have crafted a really original sound that brings together some really slick artists, rich on talent, and show their heart and soul in the music they make and in the way they perform it live. With members who are actually from my hometown, they have been on my radar for a while. The Road Heavy deliver rock that leans hard into the blues. The way the vocals trade off from the cool style of James to the sultry sound of Cardoso is just one element of their uniqueness. Some hard hitting drums (Cox) and bass lines ( DaSilva) give big punch and extra depth, joined by the foreword presence of guitars and beautiful riffs (James and Blake) and that makes The Road Heavy sound what it is. The live show is going to be pumped up a little higher now as well, with the newly added talents of Karwat on keys that really fills out their sound. I caught their set at Cherry Colas just a few weeks ago and the addition of Karwat to the mix was phenomenal. It just adds that something extra to the already amazing live sound.
