Atlas Road Crew is based in Charleston, South Carolina and they are delivering the goods on this fantastic debut album “Halfway to Hopkins”. This is a sensational new band that can easily become huge, thanks to a superb vocalist and a great classic rock sound similar to the Led Zeppelin/Aerosmith style and a dash of Southern Rock influences from Lynyrd Skynyrd. In 2011 by Taylor Nicholson (vocals, guitar) founded the band together with Dave Beddingfield (Guitar), Max Becker (Bass Guitar), Bryce James (Piano), and Patrick Drohan (Drums). The group met while attending The University of South Carolina. Their very first record was partly produced by Rick Beato from Need to Breathe, Shinedown and Trey Anastasio fame. Right from the start you are hooked. This is the way we want to hear our rock and roll. They have that traditional typical “deep down from the south of the USA” sound that only musicians from the region are able to create. Songs like Voices, Wasted Time, Runaway and Betty are truly superb classic groovy hard rock songs that should be heard by any classic rock fan out there! Don’t miss this sensational band.
