Tesla Rossa / Bio

New video for KINETIC at Teslarossa.com!

For the son of a casket salesman from Nashville Tennessee, music was the only path that would allow him to live forever. Growing up in music city and a growing lust for life led Jason Denton (vocals & guitar) to songwriting, and through a chance meeting that would seem like opposite symmetry, to pair up with Ryan Tullock (guitar, backing vocals), a starving musician raised by missionary parents in Eastern Europe. The two decided to hone their craft together under the name Tesla Rossa.

The band immediately went into the studio, writing and recording their first songs. The result was 6 demos that quickly circulated through the Nashville community, creating a firestorm of interest in the young group. Jason and Ryan soon brought on Matthew Harvey (drums) and Joseph Copeland (bass), two seasoned Nashville born players and close friends, and set out on an extensive touring schedule, playing SXSW and festivals and clubs from Austin to Boston and everywhere in between.

With buzz now spreading to the UK, the band hears London calling, as they continue recording and putting the finishing touches on their debut EP. See what the buzz is about, visit www.teslarossa.com, and get into it.

"A smash hit!" -102.9 The Buzz (Nashville)

"Get ready for an indie-rock explosion" - 100.1 Lightning 100 (Nashville)

"Seriously, if you like some good ol indie rock n' roll, then you will love this. We are backing Tesla Rossa with a 110% guarantee." -Vitalic Noise

"Local favorites. Totally good looking dudes. Completely accessible tunes. I don't want the boys of Tesla Rossa to take this the wrong way, but my dad could dig you. And so can indie-hipsters, rock-n-rollers and (I'm willing to bet) a collection of the grunge population." - SKYe Magazine

"Brings the stage down then builds it back up again with their rockin sound." - Atlanta Examiner
