Mother Road Finishing Up Debut Album

Mother Road Finishing Up Debut Album

June 19, 2012

American hard blues rock band Mother Road are currently finishing off the song-writing for their yet untitled debut album, and we will start to offer their demo to the labels within the new few days. A stream of a demo version of their song “The Sun Will Shine Again” can be heard below.

Mother Road is the brainchild of Austin, Texas based rock singer Keith Slack and Berlin, Germany based guitarist Chris Lyne. Named after ‘The Mother Road’, another name for the US’ legendary, historic Route 66 highway, this international hard blues rock band is impressively transferring the vintage sounds and the trademarks of this genre into the new decade.

Founded in 2011 and based on mutual musical influences, Slack and Lyne promptly felt the chemistry between them was right and the song-writing process soon accelerated. In the meantime, the line-up was completed with drummer Carsten Klick and bassist Frank Binke.

Guitarist Chris Lyne is well known for his astonishing work with his previous group Soul Doctor. His main influences include some of the greatest British guitar players such as Gary Moore, Jimmy Page, Paul Kossoff and John Sykes. American singer Keith Slack acted as frontman of the bands Steelhouse Lane and Michael Schenker Group (MSG), and also his own blues-influenced hard rock band Mudpie. Slack’s influences include a whole variety of styles and music from bands including Paul Rodgers, Led Zeppelin, The Black Crowes, King’s X and The Cult.
