From the moment Marjo, Frank and Arjan started the band in the spring of 2018, music was created. Long evenings full of jamming were the inspiration for their first songs. These songs can be found on their first studio recording, 'Birdview Sessions'.
After playing their first shows in the spring of 2019, the band played at a bandcontest at the Dru Ulft and they turned out to be the crowd's favorite. In that same period The Blacktop Symphony went back into the studio and recorded their first single 'Crossroads', published in the summer of 2019.
