Fordham Road was founded by Tom Shubsda and Kristian Veech on January 20th, 2016. Tom and Kristian started the band to create a sound that blended different musical genres into progressive rock music. Fordham Road has been performing regularly throughout Massachusetts since April 2016.
Later on in 2016 Fordham Road added Mark McCarthy and Joe Everett to their lineup. On top of performing regularly at Massachusetts venues, particularly in Cambridge and Worcester, they did 2 tours of Upstate New York July 2016 and January 2017, and they embarked on a larger Northeast tour in May 2017 that included Pennsylvania, New York City, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.
On October 29th, 2016, Fordham Road released their first single, “New Love in New Places.” This single will be featured on their self-titled debut album, which will be coming out on November 20th, 2017.
Fordham Road also released their first EP, “The Gates of Heaven” on February 7th, 2017.
“We aim to continue to break down genre barriers and bring new sounds to Progressive Rock. We also strive to create a hopeful and loving community at our live shows. We believe that music should be used to heal and hope that our message resonates with our audience and beyond.”
