"Definitely evoking the spirit of 90's Britpop. Would not be out of place from the bands featured in the NME and British music mags from that time. The musicianship and songwriting is on the same level." - Lonely Vagabond

Biography

Born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, Ryan Christopher fronts the band with lead vocals and adds a certain raw authenticity to the music. Kent Randall hails from Peterborough, Ontario and as resident keyboard/pianist is the musicologist of the group. Cousins Aaron Muniak, bass, and Tyler Plante, lead guitar, spent their adolescence growing up a few blocks apart in Welland, Ontario, honing their diversely influenced skills. Lastly, on drums and percussion, Andreas Houlios pulls from a vast array of cultural stylings and continues to create innovative beats that drive the band forward and hold them together.

Formed officially in December of 2008, The Rosewoods (in their newest form) have been busy writing, gigging and recording. They have recently finished recording their official EP with producer Giuliano Baglioni at Catherine North Studios in Hamilton, Ontario. They've headlined at notable venues including Toronto's The Rivoli, The Reverb, The Hideout and Peterborough's The Montreal House and have shared the stage with the likes of The Waking Eyes, Paper Lions, Stereos and Natasha Waterman. The boys were also finalists at Indie Week 2009 in Toronto.

Having been described as "A rock and roll powered machine," it is quite obvious that these lads play because they love it, and they want to share it with you. Enjoy.

Lyrics

Sensation

Written By: The Rosewoods

Head on out the door
Not looking back no more
Daylight hits my face
And I must be dreaming
If you hear my words echo through the night
I hope you're sleeping

I see you walk around
Your head hanging down
When you hear my name
Tell me what are you thinking
I want to give my best when I’m at my worst
Nothing's ever easy.

Ahh......

We're the new sensation
We're the new sensation
We're the new sensation
Who the hell are you?

Head on out the door
Not looking back no more
Daylight hits my face
And I must be dreaming
If you hear my words echo through the night
I hope you're sleeping

Ahh............

We're the new sensation
We're the new sensation
We're the new sensation
Who the hell are you?

You.......

Ahh............

We're the new sensation
We're the new sensation
We're the new sensation
We're the new sensation
We're the new sensation
We're the new sensation
We're the new sensation
Who the hell are you?
