Biography

New Jersey’s heritage as a place for emerging rock bands has been important to the development of Roots of Rebellion, a five member New Jersey-grown band. Formed in 2001, the music of Roots of Rebellion has been characterized as “melodic hard rock”, utilizing a variety of instruments and rhythms to create a distinctively unique sound within the rock genre.

In 2004, the band released their debut CD, The Looking Glass which sold more than 1000 copies at live shows and through such outlets as CD Baby, Amazon.com, and Tower Records.com. In addition, the band’s music has been digitally sold through online distributors such as Magnatune.com and iTunes. The Looking Glass has received radio play on several college, commercial and internet radio stations. Five of the eight songs on the CD were honored by GarageBand.com as “Track of the Day”, based upon popular support from online reviewers.

In September 2004, the band was invited to play Locobazooka, a major outdoor New England rock festival attended by 25,000 fans and which featured such national bands as Shinedown, Nonpoint, Damage Plan, Crossfade, Tesla and Saliva.

In 2005, Roots of Rebellion played such legendary venues as The Stone Pony, CBGB (twice) and Starland Ballroom (twice).
