Lobate Scarp is a progressive opera-rock band located in Los Angeles. Their influences are far and wide and range from classic prog-rock of the 70’s such as Genesis and Yes, to 80’s pop to modern music as well as musical theater. Their debut Time and Space was made possible in 2012 by a successful Kickstarter campaign and has since received accolades from all over the world, played on radio shows, podcasts, and had reviews published in numerous music publications. The band is making their RoSfest debut next year in Sarasota, Florida and if their Kickstarter campaign is successful, they plan on having the new album ready for the festival weekend.
“Spotlessly produced and skillfully performed, the music is large and panoramic in scope. Highly recommended for fans of symphonic prog”. – Jerry Lucky (The Progressive Rock Files)
