The Inner Road are a symphonic instrumental prog rock band. Formed from UK Prog Rock band Coalition. Founder member of The Inner Road, Steve Gresswell began writing a more symphonic style of instrumental prog rock which he didn't feel was right for Coalition - and so The Inner Road was born. The Inner Road have already established a worldwide fan-base.
Although the main writer for The Inner Road is Steve, he collaborates with other musicians as and when needed for recording and live work.
For the new album "Ascension" Steve is working with Jay Parmar, an exciting and well established guitarist. Ascension is a "heavier" style of prog rock and is immersed in feel, emotion and depth.
