BR-THFC_2015BALANCED ROCK instrumentation includes the blend of acoustic and electric guitars, combined with the smooth vibe of the bass and drums, comprise the musical line up of the band. The contents of their lyrics have a tendency to revolve around the themes of social injustice, love gone wrong, along with other pop culture references.

Balanced Rock takes their American musical roots and blends several genres to produce their twist on rock & roll, reminiscent of old school influences combined with new-age acoustic pop. The band’s signature song, Ready to Roll, is an biographical depiction inspired by their drummer and his delight discovering the nuances of the percussion musical instrument called the Cajon, and his new set of challenges mastering the wooden box.

Ready to Roll, written and produced by Balanced Rock

Ready to Roll

Chief Percussion Officer Sheffield on Cajon
Master control of the rhythm zone
A wooden cube with a hole is his throne
Master control of the rhythm zone

It allows him to leave his chrome forest at home
It’s amazing how much it’s lightened his load
It doesn’t matter, our minds are still blown
He’s the master control of the rhythm zone

I say hey everybody
Welcome to the show
We are like a balanced rock
And we’re ready to roll

Chief Percussion Officer Sheffield on patrol
Texting the Mother ship back at mission control
Awaiting instruction what to do with his soul
Master control of the rhythm zone

I say hey everybody
Hope you enjoy the show
We are like a balanced rock
And we’re ready to roll

I say hey everybody
Hope you enjoy the show
We are like a balanced rock
And we’re ready to roll
Ready to roll
Ready to roll

Ready to roll
Ready to roll
Ready to roll
