Our Story

Mars Is Watching is a collaboration between vocalist Rob Osborne, guitarist Rod Marsden, and bassist Anthony Ruggiero.

Rod and Rob had been friends for several years.  However, it wasn’t until 2014 that Rod mentioned he was looking to start a band, and found out Rob was a singer.  The two immediately began putting words to music and making bedroom recordings.  While the goal was to involve other musicians and create a full band, neither performer wished to let that stand in the way of creating music that they could play either acoustically or electrically.  Rod and Rob met Anthony from a mutual friend, and Anthony joined the band in 2018.  The three immediately began playing together and developed an instant chemistry.  The end result are songs that resonate with power, hooks and melody.  The music of Mars Is Watching shows a variety of influences and styles, based on the varied life experiences of each musician – a perfect melding of minds.
