genres: music and opera
The Long Road were formed with a single mad idea to go back to the source, to explore and reimagine what might grow out of the great musical roots of USA; a crazy notion to try distil something original and powerful from the elements that made some of the most potent music ever heard by human ears. The band call it Moonshine Music: taking a few simple, authentic ingredients adding a little heat and magic to try to conjure up some rare, raw spirit. It features as fine a bunch of rogues as ever hit a recording studio or a dirt stage each bringing a distinctive experience and musical imagination. Steve Bonham a songwriter working in American folk/country world; Chris ‘The Bishop’ Lydon on piano channelling some swampy New Orleans vibes; and ‘The Big Man’ Kev Moore, 40 years of rock’n’roll on bass, guitar and drums.
