Michael Glabicki of Rusted Root with Dirk Miller

“A song is an organism that has a history and has different meanings to many different people,” says Rusted Root lead vocalist/guitarist/songwriter Michael Glabicki. “Those people attach themselves to this organism and because of that, it’s a ritual, a way to jointly go places.”

Rusted Root, the multi-platinum sextet out of Pittsburgh, evolved around front-man Michael Glabicki’s distinct sound and grew into a musical entity that has thrived in a non-genre specific category all its own. Rusted Root built their career around dramatic performances; their polyrhythmic, multicultural rock-and-soul picked up fans like a junkyard magnet as they swept across the nation on tour.

Now, over a decade into a career with Rusted Root, Michael is ready to explore roads less traveled. What began as an opening act for Rusted Root shows, Michael’s solo tunes are beginning a new life completely independent from the successful jam band.

“It’s a little bit more out and in your face,” said Michael about his new sound “It’s not so jolly and community oriented It's more intimate material.”

More intimate and appealing to an even larger audience. Michael’s writing is evolving like the living project that it is. In order to more clearly identify his solo endeavors, he has separated from his moniker with Rusted Root and taken the name Michael Ki. The name, as well as the sound is a new entity and while it may be rooted in his past endeavors, it is clearly a new musical phenomenon.

The City Limit

The City Limit is an American blues/pop trio based out of Morris County, New Jersey, consisting of singer-songwriter and guitarist Scott Lewis, drummer Sean Meyers, and bassist/vocalist Anthony Ambrosio. A merging of the Hopatcong rock/folk/pop group Sunspots and the prog-rock jam band Awjita, members of the two projects joined forces to form the more blues-oriented, pop-focused sound of The City Limit in 2016.

Debra Devi

JamBase calls ‘70s-influenced jam-rocker Debra Devi “a supersonic fret-burner with a deep feel for the blues who writes hauntingly memorable songs.” Metal Hammer says “Her compelling voice reminds us of PJ Harvey and Sheryl Crow, while her guitar playing brings to mind the incomparable Jimi Hendrix.”

Live, Devi leads “a ferocious guitar-driven band equally adept at sprawling psychedelic jams and terse, soulful rockers,” says New York Music Daily. Grab a free download of her debut album, Get Free, at www.noisetrade.com/debradevi/get-free

Devi is also the author of the award-winning blues glossary The Language of the Blues: From Alcorub to Zuzu (foreword by Dr. John).
