BandAmericanaRock

The Roadside Graves are the essence of American indie-country rock. Six members provide lush instrumentation and melodic harmonies. The Roadside Graves are the embodiment of Kerouac’s America: something full of discovery and beauty, heartbreak and sadness.

Biography

The Roadside Graves were born and bred in Metuchen, NJ. There is an intimate camaraderie among the six friends who make up the band- they sing and play as though they’re sitting in kitchens and basements. The music is festive; it eulogizes, commemorates, and glorifies. The sound is organic, driving, full, and quirky.

The Roadside Graves are the essence of American country-rock. The band is the brainchild of vocalist John Gleason, guitarist Jeremy Benson and thousands of miles of American highway. They are a throwback to tight, well-crafted music of The Band, Springsteen, and Creedence Clearwater Revival. The six members provide lush instrumentation and melodic harmonies while Gleason laments and philosophizes about expansiveness of America and its inhabitants.
