Rosemary Gates - A Brief History

Formed in 1996, Rosemary Gates are Midwest Music scene veterans. They exploded onto the scene in 2000 with the release of their independent debut album Shine on King James Records. This led to the band's first single, "Free," being released to radio. The success of "Free" in turn led to sizeable record sales, 65 shows played, and record label attention (Universal, J Records, others), with additional radio play in Fort Wayne, Indianapolis, Cincinnati, Atlanta, Houston, and New Mexico. A darker, more experimental kind of RG record the band released Myth & Judgment in 2007 to critical acclaim. The album was chosen as the Best Rock Release of 2007 by the readers of WhatzUp Magazine in Northeast Indiana. The band is currently writing & producing material for a new disc due out winter/spring 2009. In addition the band is in the process of producing a video release of Myth & Judgment along with documentary footage of the band's storied history.

The band has varied influences reflected by the eclectic backgrounds of its members. Influences include Van Halen, Stone Temple Pilots, James Taylor, George Clinton, Porcupine Tree, Pink Floyd, Queensryche, Peter Gabriel, Led Zeppelin, Kings X, Live, Radiohead. The bands sound can be described as Matchbox 20 meets Pearl Jam meets Pink Floyd meets Stone Temple Pilots with a little Hootie & the Blowfish and John Melencamp mixed in.
