Fronted by vocalist, pianist and songwriter J.C. Gonzalez, the Richmond-based nine-piece One Truth is a blender in which rock, metal, alternative and soul are mixed. The result has a symphonic quality not dissimilar to classic rock icons Styx, Kansas and Journey. Tunes such as “I Will Die for You” and “Buried Alive” have a Broadway bombast that shapes their theatrical prog-rock proclivities with power-chord grandiosity. But One Truth chooses to stand on the shoulders of its influences instead of sitting on them. The group celebrates the release of its debut, self-titled album Saturday, Jan. 24, at the Hippodrome with opening sets by fellow Richmond bands Boxwave, Floodmoor and Hot Air Affair. Doors open at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10-$35. hippodromerichmond.com.
