The Roof met in 2015 at Penn State University by chance, with no songwriting experience, and no expectations. Their overlapping musical interests(Cage the Elephant, Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin, Grateful Dead, Allman Brothers, Tom Petty, Eagles, Black Keys etc.) soon sparked insight into a deeper friendship, as well as a desire to create. At first, with minuscule prowess, but with immense drive and effort, the songs progressed, as well as their friendship. After three years of playing dive bars, and house shows, The Roof has earned a dedicated fan base at The Pennsylvania State University as well as the Pittsburgh, PA area. As a result, the band has opened for National acts like New Politics, Waka Flocka Flame, The Brook and the Bluff, Sam Burchfield, Snail Mail and more. In the summer of 2018, their debut EP “Tangled Lives” was self-recorded & self-produced, within the reigns of a small college apartment. They are currently working on their next studio EP.
