Based out of Greensboro, North Carolina, Roseland may only be a little over a year old, but the songs display years of progress and musical maturity. The group was built on the songwriting talents of Tommy Scifres (Hot Politics) and Josh King (House of Fools), who decided to co-write a number of tunes back in 2011 as a way to bring emphasis back to the song itself, as well as the lyrical content and overall hook of the melody. After developing a small catalogue, Jordan Powers (Bass/Vox, House of Fools) and Jack Foster (Drums, House of Fools) then joined in 2012 to complete the lineup and solidify the rhythm section.
Now, Roseland have completed their first full length at North Star Sound (affiliated with Screen Gems Studios) and are currently touring on the album. The self-titled debut contains a healthy dose of classic country, folk and rock elements that remind the listener of a more honest time in music

About Look Homeward
Look Homeward is a family affair. Lee Anderson began playing songs of the rich North Carolina folk tradition while living in a cabin in Foscoe, NC. When he transferred to UNC-Chapel Hill to study religion, his brother Will picked up a banjo and the two found themselves performing at two main locations- bars and churches. Soon they learned that Will's lovely wife Lauren was a more talented singer than any of them, and she joined the band as well. "The Hunger and the Ghost" EP is a long time coming, and Look Homeward's debut release. These are songs about longing, love, God, mystery, death, and the American South. We hope they help keep your feet moving along the journey.
