Common Ground

About Common Ground: Common Ground was forged with love in the fiery depths of the Commercial Music Program at McLennan Community College in Waco, TX. Phil Wilson (drums) and Steven Rosas (guitar) met in 1990 while attending the program… it was rock at first sight, and the band was born. The catalyst for Common Ground’s sound can be attributed to the addition of Bill Hunter on silky lead vocals & rhythm guitar, and Chuck Williams on meat-and-potatoes bass guitar. Both members also attended the Music Program and the combination of influences helped give the band’s sound a broader range of textures without sacrificing the energy and smells their fans have come to expect.
Inspired by artists like Foo Fighters, Toadies, and Jellyfish… a duo of all-original, independent recordings were released: Mostly on Mondays (1996) and Fragile (1999). Both projects were recorded at Direct Resonance Recording Studio; a semi-pro studio owned and operated by Steven. These releases gained the group a moderate but rabid following throughout the Central Texas area, and ovulating females everywhere were in clear and present danger. With their third CD, Take 3 (2004), their songwriting style and recording techniques matured into what has become their signature sound: strong radio-ready hooks with hypnotic guitars, power drums, throbbing bass, and a healthy dose of distortion.
