About the band:
The Sleds are a radio-ready rock outfit from the greater Boston area. Our songwriting combines passion for overdriven guitars and crashing drums with a deep-rooted love of classic lyrics & pop sensibility- bringing you tunes that are sure to linger in your brain long after listening.
Each member of The Sleds is in their early-to-mid 20's. We have forged a brotherly bond over a mutual love of rock history, and together we bring youthful exuberance and rock 'n' roll passion to the musical landscape. Jared and Chris weave guitar heroics and vocal interplay to manifest melodic bliss, while "The Andrews" Ryan & Garrels provide a thunderous rhythm section that bursts at the seams with groove & feel.
Let's bring back Rock 'n' Roll, together...
Our fans, the "Sledheads", truly resonate with our music, and together we create a live show experience that is intimate, exciting, and one-of-a-kind. Our collective mission is to bring the life-affirming passion of rock's past to a new generation.
The Sleds draw from a wide pool of rock influences that span from the 1960's to the roaring 2020's- like Foo Fighters, Oasis, The Beatles, Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen, Alice in Chains, Nirvana, blink-182, Sum 41, Queens of the Stone Age, Def Leppard, and Ryan Adams. Our sound is an amalgam of all of these artists and more- there is no one else in the world quite like us. The music on our debut 2021 album "You Need This More Than I Do" feels both familiar and fresh, but most importantly: it's flat out fun!
