Downfall Road is:
With a hard edged and metal sensibilities Downfall road is a new breed of acoustic rock.
Dan Gaspar created Downfallroad in 2001 when he recorded the Mass Communications demo in the bedroom of his apartment. He then recruited his college roomate Neil Haletky to play with him on some open mic appearances. The two began collaberating again. To expand the project Neil recruited old friend Kristian Hermansen as a second guitarist. The group began touring the Providence area as a trio but it quickly became apparent that a full rythm section would be needed to capture the sound that Neil and Dan envisioned.
Kristian, primarily a drummer, moved into this role and was replaced on guitar by Keith Barrette. Observing a man playing drunken bass at a party one night Neil said "We've found our bass player" and Mike Gualtieri was quickly added to the current lineup.
