Prospect Hill released their album Impact in August 2012. But the powerful, commanding first single, Come Alive, just hit radio stations in February 2013. Impact was constructed with the help of platinum record producer Anthony J. Resta (Collective Soul, Blondie) and it is Prospect Hill’s first album to garner much national attention.
Prospect Hill is fronted by dreadlock haired Adam Fithian (aka The Voice). Derek (D-Rock) Rousseau and John Roberge tackle the guitar playing duties while Mark (Bamo) Roberge takes care of drums. Edgar (Paco) Troncoso jams on bass and contributes some vocals.
Known as one of the hardest working bands in music, the band has hit the pavement, and put in the hard work necessary to build a fan base. When reflecting back to when they first started, drummer Mark Roberge says, “We hit it hard. I would sit on MySpace daily, manually add 500 friends a day.”
Their hard work is paying off as Come Alive climbs the Active Rock charts, sitting at #50 as of March 2013.
Come Alive was inspired by Mark Roberge’s experience with his friends’ addictions to prescription drugs. The lyrics are his personal plea to his friends to quit wasting their lives by living in an intoxicated, numb state of mind.
Superhero, the hidden gem on the album, seems the best choice for a first single release. Its sound is perfect for mainstream radio. Hopefully we’ll see it on the charts soon.
Breakdown shows how well Prospect Hill can transition from a high energy, angst-filled song like Come Alive to an intimate ballad. Some bands sound fake when they try to throw a ballad on a record or when they try to ramp up the volume. That’s not the case with Prospect Hill. They accomplish a range of song styles well.
Prospect Hill’s efforts to produce quality music are clearly displayed on Impact, an album which is consistently strong song after song.
