Originally founded as a solo project in 2013 by guitarist Alejandro Licano, Instrumental music focused, Crossing the Rubicon finds itself at the brink of reinvention.
Since 2017, Alejandro has been joined several incredible local musicians in the Dayton area. Some of these included bassist Dave Woehrle, an artist that had previously spent much time in the underbelly of the Jazz scene, Josh Durke a Saxophonist graduate of Leeds Conservatoire who served as Saxophonist from 2018-early 2021.
As of 2021, the band's current line-up has transformed with drummer Zack Mann taking the role of percussionist, a former main kit player for Columbus based - The Dublin Silver Band, a competition brass band.
Unsurprisingly, Crossing the Rubicon's sound is somewhat eclectic. Their progressive strain of music has seen them fuse Jazz, Experimental, Metal, Djent and even EDM, utilizing electronic elements creating moments of avant-garde art. Not a group to shy away from the unorthodox, they’ve successfully carved out a name for themselves with unique orchestration, polymeter grooves and shredding guitars into a pensive and epic sound unlike any other.
Crossing the Rubicon are currently sitting on a healthy discography of three EPs (Ascension, Bloom, Anthologies Vol.1), two singles (The Sum Of All Things, The Oneiroi), and a full-length LP (Matter). They’ve received notable mentions from the likes of The Circle Pit, New Noise Magazine, Progstravaganza, and Everything is Noise to name just a few.
Crossing the Rubicon has a new EP in the works, currently titled "Metempsychosis".
