Lemon Road is an idea that started out on the road. While touring all over South America, Spain and Romania in 2007 backing up EMI Latin artist Diego Gonzalez the musicians began to write new music together. Little did they know that they were getting caught up in a whirlwind tour opening for Latin pop sensation RBD performing in sold out soccer stadiums and arenas. These experiences brought them together and helped fuel the ideas of songs like "The Wind", "Lemon", "Madrid", "It's On Me", "Take It From Me" and 'Back Home". They come from very different backgrounds and different parts of the world and this helps to spark ideas that create their unique sound but they share a vision and a passion for good music.
Everyone who has heard Lemon Road's music seems to hear the special chemistry within all of these songs and it can only be a matter of time until more and more people spread the word about this band. Won't you join us on the Lemon Road?
