""The Ship" Review by Round Magazine (Jan 31, 2013)"

"The Ship" is the first single released in May of 2012 from alternative folk rock trio 2nd & Broadway. The Ship has a universal meaning that anyone who has experienced being taken advantage of emotionally can relate too. The tone of the song is set in the first line. "Rig it up from the highest sail and point it towards the sea, let it take you wherever you want oh don't you worry about me" The nautical references are metaphors for a vessel that is quite literally carrying the singers heart on board. Using it to their advantage and utilizing it as a guide for themselves. The meaning comes to fruition in the line "and when it beats know it beats for you, it's iron forged, it's strong." The song comes to an end with a melodic chant one could hear through the smoky haze of a pub as the last drinks of the night are finished. - Round Magazine

"Pop Vulture Magainze (Aug 24, 2012)"

“2nd & Broadway is an Alternative / Folk Rock trio from Morehead, KY. Their sound is unique with guitars, mandolin, cajon, and 3 part harmony. With the combination of Ryan, Chris, and Clint, and their three different musical backgrounds, you're guaranteed to hear something like you have never heard before!” - Pop Vulture Magazine


Still working on that hot first release.



2nd & Broadway is an Alternative / Folk Rock trio

Their influences are Mumford & Sons, The Black Keys, John Mayer, The Civil Wars, and many others.

The band formed early of 2012 when they decided to take a trip to Nashville, TN for the weekend. It was there that they decided to form a band and bring their musical talents together to form what is 2nd & Broadway.

You may ask and wonder where the band name came from. When Ryan, Chris, and Clint all went to Nashville that one weekend, it was at the Hard Rock Cafe that they decided to finally form a band. The Hard Rock is located at the corner of 2nd Ave and Broadway. Also, they were big fans of the song "Pocket Change" written by Josh Damigo which in the first few lines he sings:

Second Street and Broadway, there's a little bus stop
Just an ordinary downtown of a city just around the block
Jay picks up a six-string, he starts to sing the blues
Plays the King, a little bit of old school, and a couple of new ones too

The band took to those lyrics and it was from those two things that they came up with the name:
2nd & Broadway

They are currently writing and recording for their first album, and just finished their first Self-Titled EP.
