How did you get into music?
We all got into music around the same age in different bands around the neighborhood playing small venues and playing out on the weekends. Brooklyn was much smaller back then and everyone in bands sort of knew each other
How did the band start?
We started as a two piece acoustic group made of Scott (vocals) and James (guitar) the band took a long hiatus and we started Writting songs with Mike played bass with Our Finest Hour and eventually joined up with Ponz who had been in a band called Deuce Banger. Once we heard the sound we knew the Rooftop Name would fit us perfectly
How did you come up with the band name?
We wanted a name that showed people where we are from and gives them an idea of the type of sound they might hear. Brooklyn is a sea of Rooftops and try to capture a raw rock sound but still hold true to rock music roots.
What makes your music different/unique from other artists?
We don’t stick to a certain sound and we are not afraid to add any element that we feel will elevate the a part. If there’s a part calls for a guitar solo, or a breakdown we don’t shy away from boldly adding each of our own influences to it.
What is something you want your fans to know
We try to write music that connects with people and it means a lot when we see you guys out at shows. Thanks, so much.
Where is your dream place to tour?
Touring Northern Europe or japan would be awesome!
Who is your dream artist to tour with?
We would love to tour with someone who is sort of a legend of our own time like Foo Fighters. They have such a legacy behind them that it would just be amazing to be a small part of their huge story.
How would you describe your music?
We are a hard rock band with metal guitar riffs, Ambient atmosphere and Big hooks in the chorus while still adding elements from the New York underground scene
If you can describe your music in one word using a food, what would it be and why?
Like Bbq smoked rack of ribs, because it looks delicious and it goes well with a beer
What advice would you give your 13 year old self?
Challenge yourself and stay true to what influences you.
