REBEL ROAD L-R:
ULRICH SEPPENEN-GUITAR/LEAD VOCALS
Rebel Road was formed 2008 in Vastra Gotaland, Sweden.
It has been a long and winding road for the members of the band.
Some of the band members has been playing together since the 80’s,
recording their own music for nearly four decades.
In the 90’s the band members also began to play in coverbands,
toured with some of Swedens biggest artists and appeared on national TV in Sweden.
Signing management and record deals in the mid 90’s but unfortunately
it didn’t work out.
In 2000 they continued to write songs and toured alot. At last, in 2008, Rebel Road
was formed and released about 10 songs on myspace. American Radio began to play the
music after signing a promotion deal in Nashville. At this time Rebel Road appeared
on Swedish and European radio as well.
In the years to come Rebel Road fine tuned their sound and music, went back to
the roots. Growing up listening to acts like AC/DC, Aerosmith, Thin Lizzy, Stevie
Ray Vaughan, Kiss, Deep Purple, Motorhead, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Van Halen
the band combined that 70’s sound with the sound of todays modern rock.
It has always been about rock’n’roll but when the band added a little piece of
outlaw country into the music the pieces really started to fall into place. The
music is probably best described as some kind of hard southern rock.
“To write songs has been a big part of my life ever since I was a little kid.
Singer songwriters like Bruce Springsteen has been a big inspiration to me.
The main goal is to deliver music that suits small clubs and the big arenas as well”,
says lead singer Ulrich Seppenen.
“We always try to take the music to the next level, finding new ways,
pushing ourselves hard”.
