Description

Based out of Fayetteville, AK, this band of five singers, instrumentalists and writers came together in 2012 out of a joint love for music – and a desire to make a sound that is fresh, rollicking and respectful of the past while steering full steam ahead into the future. Melding influences from nineties country to bluegrass to classic rock, they started out at church and quickly saw the promise behind what would become what we now know as Backroad Anthem – Toby Freeman (Lead Vocals/Electric), Eric Dysart (Fiddle), Josh Bryant (Lead Electric), Brandon Robold (Bass/Vocals) and Isaac Senty (Drums). Freeman lent sublime balance and smart harmonies, while the rest of the band filled out their songs with passionate and energetic instrumental performances that pushed their sound straight to the cutting edge of the genre. With a sound that melds the bombast of modern country with the infectious fuzz of rock and an absolutely electric live show, they work tirelessly to write songs, hone their sound and hit the road behind acts like Jake Owen, Justin Moore, Sam Hunt, Little Big Town, Chris Young, Josh Turner, Gary Allan, Easton Corbin, Tyler Farr, Joe Nichols, Eli Young Band and Dustin Lynch, all the while making frequent trips to Nashville. It was only last year that they put the finishing touches on their second EP, Torn. The lead single was co-written by Strickland (founding member) and, true to tthe future.

Backroad Anthem is thrilled about their new music, tour dates and what the future has in store for them.
