Biography

Tipsy Road is a Swiss rock band from Lugano, Ticino. Founded in 2007, the band consists of a lead singer, a guitarist, a bassist, a keyboardist and a drummer. Their first EP Breakin’ the Line was released in September 2009. A videoclip of the single “Naked” was realized in January 2012, it was selected for the finals of the National Italian Videoclip d’Oro contest and won the best direction award. In January 2013 their first full-length album Somewhere Alive was released. In November 2014 the band presented the full-acoustic EP Chronicles from Another Sea, driven by the curiosity for an explorative journey through the sea of acoustic music. The band is well known in Switzerland, where it has featured at the most important festivals, open-airs and in pubs and was awarded the first prize at the Palco ai Giovani Contest 2012, at the Foft Music Contest 2013 and at the Rock N’ Bonsai Contest 2013. Tipsy Road have played in Switzerland, such as at the Montreux Jazz Festival, at Bürkliplatz in Zürich for the Swiss National Day in 2013 and many other venues, but they also played at Klub007 in Prague and many times in North Italy. In 2011 the band won La Boggia Band Contest in Gordona (Italy), where as in 2014 it was selected for the swiss finals of the Emergenza contest in Bern and the final round of the Rock Highway Contest in Zurich.

Their main inspirations are Deep Purple, Dream Theater, Alter Bridge, Iron Maiden, but also jazz and classical music.

Driven by relentless passion for quality, Tipsy Road pursue their dream to blend sound and rhythm with meaningful lyrics to create a new kind of rock music: a music that captivates and touches their audience.
