Sol Roots Artist Spotlight-(Light In The Darkness)
I have been in contact with Sol Roots, the Premier Blues Jam Band from the DC area, for many years now. I have finally found the right time to review some of their music and add them to the JBP collection of reviews! It’s hard to believe that we have reviewed over 100 bands on Jam Band Purist.com and we are just now getting around to Sol Roots.
Sol Roots are raw, yet musically polished, they are easily one of the best bands coming of the DC area today. With a soulful voice that matches the power and dynamic playing from its lead member. The man behind the name is somewhat mysterious though and seems to hide in the cracks of Blues and straight-up Funk. He reminds me of many of the old Bluesmen or even a figure like a Wolfman Jack. Sol Roots have shared the stage with some of the greatest acts and has even collaborated with artists like Ron Holloway regularly.
Their recent releases and singles can be found on SoundCloud and here https://solroots.bandcamp.com/. It has been a pleasure to stay in contact with Sol Roots as they continue to grow and evolve in the DC Maryland Virginia music scene. While things have been quite difficult lately for musicians, Sol Roots has had some cool virtual gigs and you can see those online, as well. I see big things in the making for Sol Roots and I am happy to add them to the list of JBP Artist Spotlights. Look for a big announcement soon! I am also working hard to bring to all of you the JBP Presents: Video Podcast and am looking for all the help I can get with sponsors, editing, and content. If you have anything you'd love to hear me rant about email me or comment below.
