"International Pop Overthrow"

"I must thank Toronto pop legend Bob Segarini for turning me on to this band from his hometown. They're a very unique blend of Byrds influences and Celtic stylings, a brew we're proud to servie up at the "International Pop Overthrow" in Los Angeles, Chicago, and Baltimore!"

"Danie Cortese Entertainment"

"The Roscoe Project is beginning to take flight as I knew it would from the first moment I listened to their CD. I am very confident the talents of these musicians will not go unnoticed. I am very pleased to be involved with such a promising act"

"Next Big Thing"

"The Roscoe Project is a fine and subtle blend of alternative folk and edgy pop, with healthy ladles of country leanings that Gram Parsons would surely be slow dancing to. Lazy Sunday afternoons and driving far across through lonely highways were things that these tunes were made for."

“Roscoe Project is the band of singer and guitarist Laurence Roscoe who is originally from Toronto. Outside of Reno is the bands debut album that has already gotten a lot of airplay on the American radio stations. This is quite understandable given the fact that Roscoe Project has got that typical AM-sound and therefore recalls the popular country rock and pop music from the mid 70s. Laurence Roscoe has a strong voice that reminds me of Roger McGuinn; the harmonies bring back memories of the Byrds, but also of Firefly. Moreover, Roscoe is a great guitarist who’s whistling electric sound makes me think of Elvin Bishop. During great songs like Outside of Reno, Sleight of Hand, Bipolar and Urban Steel I can actually hear bands like the Little River Band, Poco and American Flyer before me, but most of all they remind me of the Eagles in their best years (before Hotel California). In short, Roscoe Project ensures a sentimental journey back to the old-fashioned, but also mainstream, country rock of the mid 70s. And who wouldn’t enjoy that?”

"Fufkin -"

"Outside of Reno - by the Roscoe Project. Pseudo-60s pop gems abound on this album! "Bipolar", "Urban Steel", "Misk Knowes", "Sleight of Hand" and "These Last Few Hours" will please fans of Tom Petty, Dramarama, etc."

"Not Lame Records"

"This Toronto-based band has classic sound that evokes the spirit of vocal-driven 70`s faves like Poco, Orleans, Crosby, Stills, & Nash, and 90`s California band, Venice while adding a touch of gentle, laid back Southern-pop rock ala, say, Dwight Twilley, the first two Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers albums and Ozark Mountain Dare devils. A bit odd? Not really, as "Outside Of Reno" is an easy glide along the pleasure highway of tuneage. Strongly melodic with crystal clean vocals that sparkle brightly in close harmony, supported by beautiful and honest guitarplay. All the tunes here have a sunny washed soul that a laid-back joy to simply enjoy without pretense or expectation of slotting into "the new sound" of the day."

Founded by front man Laurence Roscoe, the Roscoe Project is an original pop / rock outfit which has brought the “show” back into live music. Equipped with a collection of twelve and six string guitars, three part harmony, and eclectic musicianship, the band has captivated audiences with their live performances and melodic approach to songwriting.

Since the start of their musical careers, each member of the Roscoe Project has been actively involved with performing live music. Members include Laurence Roscoe (composer, songwriter, and engineer), Joe Calbery, and Richard Baker. Throughout the years the members have joined forces to inspire a variety of musical accomplishments. Inevitably, this crew have come together to form the Roscoe Project with each member contributing his own unique characteristic.

Based out of downtown Toronto, the Roscoe Project has been performing at the finest venues that Toronto has to offer. After frequenting the stages of the Toronto club circuit the band moved on to securing regular performances at the world renowned Hard Rock Café, Toronto.

Next stop, the United States. As a result of their performances and overwhelming response at the Hard Rock Café, the band managed to grab the attention of many key music industry professionals which has since led them to perform at the “International Pop Overthrow" series of festivals in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, and Baltimore. As one of America's most recognized music festivals, the "International Pop Overthrow" has launched the Roscoe Project into the American market.

Radio airplay is one of the many accomplishments for the Roscoe Project. Their songs are receiving nationwide airplay across the United States and Canada at a rate of over 300 spins per week on the HotAC and CHR airwaves. In addition, they are currently showcasing at several renowned Canadian events & festivals as well as incorporating distribution of their music throughout Canada and the United States.
