Aries Road was formed in 2007 in Tulsa, Oklahoma and now reside in Bixby, Oklahoma. The founding members are songwriters Ashley McCarty and Ryan McCarty who have been married since 2006. Their many influences include Janis Joplin, Fleetwood Mac, Led Zeppelin, Boston, Heart, Garbage, Alice in Chains and Metallica - just to name a few. Aries Road has formed an eclectic writing style that doesn't pin them down to one genre.
In 2009, the couple finished their full-length debut album Keyholder – a vintage style, acoustic, rock and blues album.
Deciding to expand their songwriting style and direction, Aries Road completed their 2nd release in 2012, Preparing For Sanity, a 5 song EP with collaboration efforts of studio bassist Kirk Powers (Deborah Gibson, American Tears, Point Blank) and percussionist Mike Gage (73 Miles Out, Buddy Whittington, Point Blank).
Aries Road is currently working on their 3rd album. They have made the decision to not self-produce this album and will be handing the reigns over to Mike Gage at Hurricane Sound. Mike Gage and Kirk Powers will be accompanying Aries Road on this album as well.
