Musical Genre & Influences[edit]

Radio Romeo's sound can be described as having early 1970's Pop melodies blended with late 80's Hard Rock and peppered with Delta Blues riffs. The band's varied repertoire on their eponymously titled debut album 'Radio Romeo' was clearly influenced by some of the more notable recording artists of the 1950s, 60's and 70's. These included, but were not limited to, The Rolling Stones, The Who, David Bowie, AC/DC, Ramones, Bryan Ferry, Buddy Holly, Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, Otis Redding and Sam Cook.
