About Elliot Root:
A polished alternative rock group hailing from Nashville, Tennessee, Elliot Root is a five-piece band that, as it happens, features no musicians named “Elliot” or “Root.” Instead, the lineup includes Scott Krueger on vocals, guitar, and keyboards, Todd Bond on guitar, Melissa Mattey on keyboards and vocals, Justin Smith on bass and vocals, and Sean Truskowski on drums and vocals. Elliot Root formed in 2009, and slowly but surely built an audience in their hometown as they honed their sound through live work. After establishing themselves as a club attraction in Nashville, they began earning spots at regional music festivals and opening for the likes of the Zac Brown Band and Michael Franti & Spearhead. In 2014, Elliot Root made their recorded debut with a four-song release, er/ep, and in 2015 they issued two more EPs, II and Thoughts from Yesterday. In 2017, as they continued to gain new fans as one of Nashville’s most popular indie rock bands, they issued their first full-length album, Conjure.
JEREMY DAVID BAKER
About Jeremy David Baker:
Jeremy David Baker is an Americana artist, originally from Florida. He signed with Green Shoe Records in 2015. Jeremy’s music tells of hope, loss, and revival. His strong voice is full of texture and emotion. Jeremy grew up in a very musical family. It has always been a Baker tradition to pass the guitar around at family events. His musical upbringing was an exceptionally eclectic search, carrying Jeremy from one genre to the next. He was raised on early rock n’ roll by the likes of The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. As a young teen, he discovered punk rock and spent a few years playing angsty fast-paced anthems before falling in love with old, classic, country folk music. “If you dig through my record collection you’ll find blues, jazz, punk, metal, country, even a little hip hop. No jam bands though…never jam bands.” Now, as a solo artist, he reveals the culmination of years spent refining a melting-pot sound which is both inventive and enchanting.
