Review – The Road Hammers

Album: Wheels

Release Date: June 3, 2014
Genre: Country

On country radio, I always heard “Get on Down the Road” and “Mud.” Who sang these? After Shazam-ing the songs, the answer was The Road Hammers.

The Road Hammers are a country-rock band comprised of Jason McCoy, Clayton Bellamy, and Chris Byrne. The group released their latest record Wheels on June 3, 2014 featuring both “Get on Down the Road” and “Mud.”

The one thing I have enjoyed about listening to The Road Hammer’s releases is that not “just” country. There is a significant rock influence. In addition, the album is fun and energetic. My favourite tracks on the album are “Get on Down the Road,” “I’ve Been Everywhere,” and “Wide Open.”

I highly recommend checking out Wheels by The Road Hammers! It has definitely been one of my favourite releases of the year.

Rating: 4/5

Hi Everyone! My name is Remington Fioraso. I am a graduate of the University of the Fraser Valley’s Bachelor of Arts program in Sociology, Anthropology, and Media and Communication Studies. Within my program, I focused on social media, learning about contemporary and classical sociological theory (Including Marx, Foucault, Bourdieu, and Durkheim), and communicating effectively in various modes and for different audiences (including oral communication, business communication, academic writing, entertainment media, and presentations utilizing visual media). Within my program, the question arose for many courses, “What is the relevance in the real world?” Stepping (temporarily) away from being in university, I gained an interest in Latin American development, social movements, and business. Sooner than later, I will be applying for post-grad programs to dive further into LA development and social movements to gain a theory-background in addition to a personal perspective onto the topics. In my free time, I love to travel, consume media, eat, listen to music, and write. Listening to music and writing led to my interest in working with Canadian Beats! I have been a part of the team since April 2014. A few of my personal highlights of interviews include ones with some of my favourite artists – Sumo Cyco, Madeline Merlo, and High Valley.
