Mayhem Moment: Restless Road

Let’s face it, even the most highly successful music artist had to start somewhere! Every performer, singer, songwriter, or musician likely began pursuing their dream after being moved by a real-life experience.

Plenty of artists got their start after attending their first concert, while others found their passion following the purchase of their first full-length album. Some artists even had to climb the ranks, oddly enough, by digging ditches for extra cash to find their way to playing on stage in front of thousands of people. Meanwhile, others have stood in giant crowds to see bands play on stage before ever hitting the road on their own.

After paying his dues and learning the ins and outs of the business, though, Restless Road has been able to make a career out of what they love to do! And, they can now reflect on their journey and see how far they have come so far.

Luckily, for readers Music Mayhem has decided to go back to where it all began for the guys of Restless Road, and find out some of the biggest moments that have helped shape them into who they are today!

Check out these cool first-time experiences that have made an impact on the group’s career throughout their lives.
