The Bitteroots are an Atlanta/Decaturbased original jamrock band founded in 2008. Fronted by female vocalist Laura Dees, the band has a sound that’s been called a “unique brand of soulful rock.” The Bitteroots’ grooveoriented approach to rock n roll has drawn comparisons to the TedeschiTrucks Band, Melissa Etheridge, and Janis Joplin. From pop melodies to extended jams, The Bitteroots’ sets run the gamut with something for everybody. The Bitteroots have released four compilations of original music, the latest being the single “Under the Big Sky,” recorded in the fall of 2013 at The Music Farm studio by Mark van Allen (Govt. Mule, Indigo Girls, Blueground Undergrass, Zac Brown Band, Whiskey Gentry). The melodic title track is accompanied by two bonus tracks, the hardrocking “Defenseless” and a retooled version of “Try Me Again” which first appeared on the band’s debut release, “French Fries,” in 2011.
The stoop is where it started and your rump is where it ends. That's Cadillac Jones for you. Standing on the shoulders of giants like Herbie Hancock, the Crusaders, and John Coltrane, Cadillac Jones' sound is one part jazz, one part funk, and three sheets to the wind. The band combines driving rythms, tight melodies, and improvisational jams to create a sound that grinds the hips and tickles the mind.
Donna Hopkins is the real deal. Born and raised on an Alabama farm, Donna witnessed hardship first hand, channeling it into the soulful music that she creates and performs. Music runs in her family; her mother performed rock and roll in go-go boots and mini-skirts and her grandfather was a fine musician in his own right. Following in their footsteps, Donna is a consummate seasoned performer with many songs and performances under her belt. Georgia Music Magazine calls Donna Hopkins a "genuine triple threat" due to her prowess as a singer, songwriter and guitarist. In addition to her other talents, Donna also wears the producer's hat, working with and developing up-and-coming talent in the Atlanta area.
Ruby Velle & The Soulphonics roots are embedded in the rich sound and history of Georgia soul, beginning with the early 50’s and 60’s R&B that became so well known around the world. Having performed countless gigs since 2005, and with a slew of 45rpm singles already under their belts, the band has already contributed heavily to the steadily increasing awareness of genuine rhythm and blues music that exists today. They pack clubs and festivals with their original brand of soul, all of which is written and recorded in Atlanta. Ruby Velle & The Soulphonics are taking it world wide in 2012, with the release of “It’s About Time.”
