This is not your average band. They are a tight knit group of close friends who began paying their dues in the talented Nashville music scene in several different bands before finalizing the current line up. Brothers Brett and Brian "Dante" Moyer would start the foundation for this family in 1996. They soon added local bassist Jason "Golden" Hunt and Drummer/Percussionist Neal Davis and started work as a 4 piece. In 2003, the Moyers would reconnect with their long-time friend Todd "Mush" Fullford and RTS would officially be formed. Looking and sounding the part of a true rock frontman, Brett is a classically trained vocalist that brings experience from theater, choir, and an extreme passion and aggression for life experiences. Dante is an intense musician that brings the sound of modern rock, and his own unique blend of styles that is immediately recognized. An impressive guitarist as youll find, Mush has a passion for guitar giants such as Steve Vai and John Petrucci with influences of early rock/metal bands. Rounding out the lineup is the incredible rhythm section of Golden and Neal. Golden is a studio and drum corp. vet that brings with him one of the best stage shows you'll see. Neal is also a drum corp. vet bringing great chops and a solid back bone to the band. As an added tool, two of the members boast B.S. from the acclaimed Middle Tennessee State University Recording Industry program.

"Return To Self" is a force to be reckoned with in the upcoming new wave of unsigned talent that is creating a national buzz. Drawing interest from major producers, A&R, and labels from L.A. to New York, RTS is a band that is determined to break down the walls of "Music City" and show everyone that Nashville is not just a country music town. Return To Self is the next big thing. Trust us.
