Combine a high energy, in your face live performance, with a melodic yet edgy original sound packed full of hooks and huge choruses, and you have the product of the hard rock band Prospect Hill. Hailing from the Merrimack Valley, an area just 20 minutes north of Boston, MA, the group is comprised of 5 long time best friends who are nothing short of charismatic, each unique in there own way, yet equally driven by a passion to rise to the top of the music industry.
Early on, the aspiring quintet faced many adversities, one being the lack of necessary funding essential in obtaining any standard of quality in equipment and recordings. As a result, the band was reduced to using hand-me-down instruments and old equipment while playing shows for audiences that consisted mostly of family and friends. However, the group has experienced an evolution that credits persistence and commitment. Over time, Prospect Hill has transformed their act from playing small shows at local venues to performing in front of thousands of screaming fans in arenas and theaters across the United States; from recording demos in their garage to recording an album with A-List Producer Anthony J. Resta (Collective Soul, Duran Duran) goes to show where they came from and where they are going. Prospect Hill is proof that hard work, determination, and originality trumps financial backing and clout any day. Name any National Rock band in the country and there is a 90% chance Prospect Hill has shared the stage with them. They have taken the North East Region by storm by performing on average 100 shows a year which range from all over the North East, down the East Coast, out to Texas, the Midwest and all the way out to California. They have been nominated and won numerous awards over the years, one including High Times Magazineâs Best Independent Act of 2010 resulting in them performing The High Times Magazine Award showcase in Austin, TX for the 2010 South By South West Music Festival. With three full-length albums out and non-stop touring Prospect Hill shows they have no sign of slowing down or lack of creativity.
Their first full length album released in 2007 âFor the Lovers the Haters in the Deadâ sold 3500 copies to date and featured their first song to be picked up by radio titled âBreakdownâ which instantly became a fan favorite. That album also was home to their song titled âS.O.Eâ which featured National Act Godsmackâs guitarist Tony Rombola. They then went on to release their second album titled âProspect Hillâ in 2009, which has sold 5,000 copies to date. Upon initial release emerged on the North East Heat Seekers Billboard Charts at #2 and The Boston Albums Billboard Chart at #14, garnering much attention from within the industry. The album had a more commercial writing feel with catchy yet hard-hitting songs, âRoller Coasterâ and âSuper Heroâ being the standouts. After releasing the album Prospect Hill went ahead and filmed their acclaimed âOne Shotâ music video for their single âRoller Coasterâ which featured MTV Real World star Scott Herman. The video was an instant success and gained much attention and momentum online. âProspect Hillâ continues to chart on numerous Billboard charts to this day. Their third and latest album titled âImpactâ released in late 2011 is their biggest to date. The album was produced by the legendary Anthony J Resta. Together they were able to capture the feel of their high-energy performance while offering the rock world a new unique sound that can compete with the best of them. The first single released of the album titled âCome Aliveâ emerged on Amazons hot new rock singles chart and climbed all the way up to the top 10 within just a few days of the release. The song has begun to receive airplay on rock stations all across the country. The music video for the single came out amazing and can be viewed by some as controversial. Prospect Hill held their CD Release party in front of a packed house at the famous Wilbur Theater in Boston, MA.
Prospect Hill will head out on a National tour in March of 2012. The tour will take them all across the U.S in all types of venues. With their single âCome Aliveâ still being picked up by radio stations across the country 2012 is looking to be a big year for them. Prospect Hillâs determination and passion has brought them to where they are now and will continue to help catapult them to the very top of the music industry.
