ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Common Ground was forged with love in the fiery depths of the Commercial Music Program at McLennan Community College in Waco, Texas. Phil Wilson (drums) and Steven Rosas (guitar) met in 1990 while attending the program... it was rock at first sight, and the band was born. The catalyst for Common Ground's sound can be attributed to the addition of Bill Hunter on silky lead vocals & rhythm guitar, and Chuck Williams on meat-and-potatoes bass guitar. Both members also attended the Music Program and the combination of influences helped give the band's sound a broader range of textures without sacrificing the energy and smells their fans have come to expect.

Inspired by artists like Foo Fighters, Toadies, and Jellyfish... a duo of all-original, independent recordings were released: "Mostly on Mondays" (1996) and "Fragile" (1999). Both projects were recorded at Direct Resonance Recording Studio; a semi-pro studio owned and operated by Steven. These releases gained the group a moderate but rabid following throughout the Central Texas area, and ovulating females everywhere were in clear and present danger. With their third CD, "Take 3" (2004), their songwriting style and recording techniques matured into what has become their signature sound: strong radio-ready hooks with hypnotic guitars, power drums, throbbing bass, and a healthy dose of distortion.

Common Ground performs regularly throughout the sexy state of Texas while tracks from "Fragile" and "Take 3" can be heard on KBRQ FM Waco, and the syndicated radio show Texas Shock Syndrome. The band's material can also be heard on several internet radio stations and can be downloaded at dozens of digital download websites such as Apple iTunes, Amazon, Napster, Spotify and more. Common Ground CD's and other merchandise can be purchased at local music stores, live performances, CDBaby.com via the band's website at www.TexasRockBand.com

Good Ole' Rock Music!!
Lots of guitars, distortion, this is a well done, well mixed CD for rock music lovers. Not heavy metal or head banger stuffjust good rock. Good leads, tight drums.Clear vocals with good background vocals.

A real grower
When I get a new cd i always flick through and listen to the first minute or so of each track. I have to admit that when I did this I wasn't too sure about this album but once i played the thing my doubts disappeared. Its great. It reminds me of so many different bands from the past few decades. A prefect example of good songwriting and a band that want to rock. Gets better with every listen.

CG knows how to cut a groove
CG knows how to cut a groove - and is nice enough to tack sing-along melodies on top. Their rocking jams from "Fragile" including the mid to upper tempo "Evans Park" opener, their snaky leadoff single "Twisted Lives", and tear jerking booty-getter "Inside" make it hard not to
appreciate their song writing and musical capabilities.

I'm looking forward to their 3rd CD, sure to be a hit, which will include "Better Life" with bounce enough that you can bet it will become a summer road trip staple if they can get it done by January 2003.

It's hard not to appreciate the band's versatile rhythms and ear for texture.

And you don't even have to send off for one of those goofy T-shirts.

And boy you should see em' live! Sweet Lord O' Mighty!

Common Ground has the sound everyone is in search of...
Being as sexy on stage as they are, it really makes for a difficult time enjoying the music of Common Ground at live shows. But that's the price you pay for being 4 sexy bitches in rock'n'roll. All jokes aside, Common Ground has the sound that everyone entering a studio is in search of. Breaking through the monotony that rock music has grounded itself in, Common Ground bring originality not seen since the New Originals so long ago. Lyrics that jump out and scream for your attention, without the need for screaming, shine through on cd's such as "Fragile." You can't help but want so badly to sing along the first time you hear songs like "Take on the World", while it's guitar riff grabbing you by the balls. Their newest work, "Take Me With You" picks up right where "Fragile" left off, proving that with 4 talented musicians, and 4 emotionally charged songwriters, you might just be able to stop staring at the bulges in their pants long enough to rock.

Original, gutsy, hard hitting, yet musical, keep an eye out for these boys
The band known as "Common Ground" is a Waco, Texas based rock and roll band featuring some of the industries finest singers, players, and song writers. Already boasting a 3 compact disc collection of songs, this working rock ensemble can woo you with 3 part harmonies yet take you to the top with edgy guitars and solid rhythms. This original four piece group can be said to have been influenced by "The Beatles" but in no way could they be considered to be a clone of anything. Original, gutsy, hard hitting, yet musical is the best way to describe the winning combination of Chuck Williams on bass, Steven Rosas on lead guitar and vocals, Bill Hunter on guitar and lead vocals, and Phillip Wilson keeping the groove on drums. Do yourself a favor and keep an eye out for these boys because they will be coming to your town and they will be ready to ROCK......YOU!!
