Introduction

Founded by front man Laurence Roscoe, the Roscoe Project is an original folk rock outfit which has brought the "show" back into live music. Equipped with a collection of twelve and six string guitars, three part harmony, and eclectic musicianship, the band has captivated audiences with their energetic live performance and melodic approach to songwriting.

Since the start of their musical careers, each member of the Roscoe Project has been actively involved with performing live music. Members include Laurence Roscoe (composer, songwriter, and engineer), Neil Traynor, Joe Calbery, Jeff Preager, and Richard Baker. Throughout the years the members have joined forces to inspire a variety of musical accomplishments. Inevitably, this crew have come together to form the Roscoe Project with each member contributing his own unique characteristic.

In conjunction with the Hard Rock Cafe, Q107 FM which is Toronto's largest rock'n'roll station, has been making regular mention of the Roscoe Project within their day to day programming.

Next stop, the United States. As a result of their performances and overwhelming response at the Hard Rock Café, the band managed to grab the attention of many key music industry professionals which has since led them to be included in this years "International Pop Overthrow" series of festivals in both Chicago and Los Angeles. As one of America's most recognized music festivals, the "International Pop Overthrow" will launch the Roscoe Project into the American market.

Radio airplay is one of the many accomplishments for the Roscoe Project. The band has managed to secure nationwide airplay on the entire CBC Radio Network.
