Rusted Root will be back on the road for many a date this springtime. On July 31st they will be performing at the TAFT THEATRE in Cincinnati on Augustu 17th.

In honor of their 25th Anniversary, Rusted Root have started an Indie-A-Gogo campaign to raise money to record a brand new studio album, their eighth and follow-up their current release, The Movement. In order to make the music that they want and their fans desire Rusted Root must do it independently, without the funding of a record label. To date, they’ve written over 30 songs for the new record, many of which they have already been tested in front of the fans. Rusted Root promises to provide perks according to funding levels and keep fans up to date on these through their website. Some of the perks include the ever popular” Choose Your Own Adventure,” “Send Me On My Way Soundcheck” or “Stage Seating.” Others will need to wait until the album is complete like the “Vinyl package” and “Digital Download.” Read more

Ever since Steve Earle declared Miller a “world class” songwriter – signing him and his former band The V-Roys to his record label E-Squared and producing their two bedrock Americana albums JUST ADD ICE and ALL ABOUT TOWN with Twangtrust partner Ray Kennedy – Miller has been known as a writer’s writer. Even on the next four albums Miller recorded and releasedon Sugar Hill Records from 2001 to 2008, Miller’s songwriting remained genuinely thoughtful, for the most part regional and history based– but always cloaked in what one New York Times reviewer called an “epic vernacular.” In other words, he wrote big.

The last two years have seen big changes for the malapert Miller. “Like many with elderly parents I heard the call: Now is the time for all sons to return to the land of their raising, smother their parents with a pillow and collect their social security,” Miller deadpanned. Moving home to take over the family cattle farm and establishing a new base from which to tour in Staunton, VA – all while embracing a new life of sobriety – has been challenging and time consuming. “Most of my touring the last couple of years has been in spurts, not like I used to do. I can’t leave my cows for that long. I need their guidance.” Read more
