A story of persistence, Rosedale is the solo project of alternative musician Mike Liorti. Combining influences from alternative, pop-rock and punk, Rosedale’s sound is awash with catchy hooks underpinned by Liorti’s deft vocals, intuitive song-writing and palpable honesty.
From memorizing Weird Al lyrics word-for-word to learning the piano from a young age, Liorti was inspired by music for as long as he can remember.
At the age of 12, Liorti’s first guitar, combined with a slew of pop-punk records from Pennybridge Pioneersto Enema of The State and the ever-recognized Tony Hawk’s Pro-Skater Soundtrack inspired the vision that would eventually become Rosedale.
In 2012, Rosedale released debut album Real, a record displaying Liorti’s combination of passion, melody and a keen ear for songmanship. Not perturbed by a lack of commitment from former band mates, Liorti took to the road on his own to follow the Warped Tour, playing in parking lots and selling Real to anyone who would listen, day and night for over two-weeks until he was invited to play the Ernie Ball Stage.
Fast-forward to 2015 and Rosedale has toured North America on a number of occasions (both solo and with US-based touring accompaniment Time & Distance), performed on 4 different stages at The Vans Warped Tour and landed notable supports for the likes of New Found Glory and A$AP Rocky at SUNY Brockport’s annual “Brock the Port”.
2016 sees Rosedale take to European shores for the first time with experimental Miami rockers I Set My Friends on Fire.
