Once in a while, there is a band that comes along which breaks the boundaries of genres and forges their own path. Forever Road is that band. Made up of Jake Gilroy (Lead Vocals & Guitar) & Jay Seeney (Lead Guitar & Vocals), the band has a bold and edgy sound breaking the boundaries of country rock. The sound, coupled with an unbelievably high energy stage show makes Forever Road one of those bands you just have to see.
In the three years since forming, Forever Road has furiously toured up and down the east coast of Australia performing at dozens of venues between Sydney and Brisbane.
Most recently, Forever Road released a brand new track titled ‘Woo Hoo’ which has exploded onto the air waves all around Australia. On top of releasing ‘Woo Hoo’, Forever Road was nominated for 3 Australian Country Music People’s Choice Awards including: Best Group, Best Video Clip and Most Promising Future Star. The awards were purely voted for by the general public and the band was blown away by the support. ‘It was an honour to be nominated for one award, let alone three. To think we would be in a category alongside The McClymonts and McAlister Kemp since forming about three years ago is incredible’, Seeney says.
Not only this but many instrument and accessory manufacturers have also seen the value of the Forever Road brand with the likes of Schecter Guitars and Rotosound strings adding Jay Seeney to their artist roster as well as Ibanez and Laney adding Jake Gilroy to theirs.
Forever Road love to thrill the audience with classic covers and originals, have been described as one of the most entertaining, high energy bands on the circuit. Jay is thrilled that the band has come a long way so fast and believe that it is down to dedication, not being afraid to break boundaries and most of all, passion for the music. Later this month, Forever Road will be performing 5 shows at the Gympie Music Muster alongside the likes of Jimmy Barnes, Troy Cassar-Daley, Adam Brand, McAlister Kemp, Darryl Braithewaite and many other stellar performers.
Forever Road has plans to record a new EP with master producer, Matt Fell later this year which will solidify the band’s sound even further. Jake & Jay are very excited about their new material. ‘If you like rock music, you’ll like it & if you like country music, you’ll like it’, Gilroy says.
Forever Road is a brand new sound in Australia, the next evolution of the rock/country sound.
