Fort Lauderdale’s A New Way to Live Forever is an indie-rock hook monster powerhouse led by dynamic front man Russ Rogers (Vocals/Rhythm Guitar) with Phil Tucciarone (Drums), Steve Velez (Bass), Stephen Rose (Guitar) and Daniel Dyer (Guitar).
“Music first always,” Russ says, describing how he writes for his vocal style. “Then the tone of the song just brings it out. It’s never planned. It’s a natural situation. After a few minutes of working on a riff, the hook usually emerges so I’ll record that part and the other parts as they are discovered. Then it’s just putting the words on after. When the tone and the melody of the music come together, suddenly a word will pop up and then I just build the whole song around that word. Each song is a new discovery for me.”
