Bourbon to Broadway
With one boot planted firmly in the hallowed grounds of Americana and the other digging in strong to the new Texas music scene, Sweet Root straddles both genres for a perfect blend of country-fused rock that's caught the attention of fans and critics alike. Influenced by legends such as John Mellencamp, Alabama, Tom Petty and the great Johnny Cash, in just a short time this Louisiana-based group has cultivated a devoted following from Georgia through Texas. Kansas-born lead singer Dustin Powell's rich vocals breathe new life into tried and true songs about relationships, lost love and the rigors of the road, while David Wallace's gritty guitar add another dimension to the music. Brett Smith's drums and Lance Dubroc's bass and tight vocal harmonies wrap up a full sound that fits each tune like an old familiar jacket. Listening to the band's music, you get an immediate understanding of their respect for song craftsmanship and unique ability to wrap great hooks around grassroots lyrics. Songs like the rocking "Half a Mile Away," clever "Tuesday Night" and radio-friendly "Crazy Beautiful" grab you by the collar and force you to take notice from the opening notes. Country-influenced in the studio, the band comes alive on stage and you better believe, "The Root" can rock as they blast and blaze through their deep repertoire of crowd-pleasing songs. Treat yourself to a little taste of Sweet Root and we guarantee you'll be back for more.
