ABOUT

Path To Paradise was started in September of 2017 by local musicians in Roanoke by lead singer Zaine Comstock and guitarists Michael "Mick" Miller, and Jon Hudgins. After establishing themselves as a small time local acoustic act playing in bars, the lineup changed several times. The band hired talented guitarist Conner Dotson as a bass player but quickly moved him to lead guitar, at the same time Jon left the band for personal reasons. Michael left the band shortly after they hired Jesse Banks Booth on drums, who shortly thereafter was fired due to personal disputes between himself and the other band members. Jared Harshbarger was a temporary guitarist when Michael Miller left the band to deal with issues with his own personal life. The band in such a short time had by then reached yet another incarnation leaving Zaine as the only original member.

'Path To Paradise' quickly brought in Austin Setchel to play bass, who then subsequently left for personal reasons: scheduling conflicts between school and the band. After that the band hired Michael Scott to play rhythm guitar and Michael James Valentine for drums, and then p2p went into the studio at 'Final Track' studios to record our first 5 song EP. Michael Scott left the band shortly therafter; and Michael "Mick" Miller returned after that to be the band's business contact and booking agent instead of having a visibly active or live performing roll within the band itself. Finally with that last reincarnation, the route has been chosen for us to walk the 'Path To Paradise'.

Currently, the band lineup is as follows:
-Zaine Comstock: Lead vocals
-Conner Dotson: Lead guitar/vocals
-Micheal James Valentine: Drums/percussion
-Brett Masterson: Bass
-Skyler Gilbert: Rhythm guitar

The band writes original music and perfoms covers, and has recently been booked to play shows at local venues in roanoke as well as play the 50th annual Roanoke Festivheal in the Park on May 26th and 27th.

We are releasing our EP on all major music sharing sites on Thursday, March 22nd 2018, and recording our next single, due to come out sometime shortly afterwards in May 2018. Following that, we are remastering all the songs from our current EP while recording our first all original album that will consist of 12 new all original compositions and should be released sometime between summer's end and the middle of fall 2018.

The new album, titled "The Start" will be sold on Itunes and Amazon Music with the standard version consisting of the 12 new songs and the limited edition album will include ther 12 songs as well as the remastered EP and personal gifts from the band for a higher price.
