Roses & Revolutions

Roses & Revolutions is a band from Rochester, NY and made up of Alyssa Rose Coco and Matt Merritt. The two musicians met up to write together after Alyssa's publicity from appearing on season 7 of American Idol.

Alyssa and Matt played their first show together opening for Little Feat and from there, more opportunities came in, and the group found themselves supporting artists like O.A.R, Ingrid Michaelson, Smash Mouth, Jonny Lang, G Love & Special Sauce, Sheryl Crow, Rusted Root, Tim Reynolds, Ryan Star, Robert Randolph, Sonny Landreth, Javier Colon, Average White Band, and more.

They have released their debut EP "Earth and Everything" in October 2012. This Ep has encountered a good success from its release. It has been in iTunes top 200 bestselling singer/songwriter albums since and the EP is currently playing on over 300cmj stations. This Ep contains 6 mesmerizing songs from beautiful ballads to more rythm songs. Alyssa's got a gorgeous voice and Matt is an amazing guitar player. It's typically the sort of album I like for a sunday afternoon.

  1. They're great! I heard 'Home' on the radio and immediately looked them up. Let's hope they keep doing music.
