Michael Glabicki & Dirk Miller Rams Head On Stage in Annapolis

Rusted Root evolved around front-man Michael Glabicki's distinct sound and vision…a one of a kind blend of acoustic folk, rock and world music that took the Pittsburgh based band from local clubs to multi-platinum record sales and a worldwide touring career. Glabicki is exploring new sounds and opening new doors with his solo career, regularly touring as a duo with Rusted Root's guitar player, Dirk Miller. A multi-faceted musician, producer and songwriter, Glabicki's duo tour dates feature many Rusted Roots hits, stories and songs yet to be released. “We go into the crevices of the songs and expand them out and open up the music to whatever happens in the moment,” Glabicki says of his shows with Miller. “It’s completely improvisational, to the point where we surprise ourselves a lot. Things just happen, and I start laughing. It’s like we’ve never heard it sound like that before. We have a great time with it and the audience seems to enjoy the musical exploration too.”

Pressing Strings

What’s in a band name? A little or a lot, depending on how deeply you want to go.

For Annapolis, Maryland-based trio Pressing Strings (Jordan Sokel: Guitar/Vocals, Nick Welker: Bass, Brandon Bartlett: Drums), the guitar guy is outnumbered by the rhythm section, but it all started back when Sokel, as a kid enamored with Dylan, Marley, Strummer, Simon, and Withers, learned to simultaneously play guitar and sing his favorite songs.

Then, guitar in hand, the songwriting bug took hold.

Cutting to 2014, with the current line-up firmed up, the band got to work developing its fanbase in the mid-Atlantic with shows from Pennsylvania to the Carolinas, then headed into the studio to record its Owe The Source album, released in 2015. Not easily tagged, genre-wise, the album deftly mixed a thoughtful soulfulness with union hall rock and roll, and they returned to the road to show it all off everywhere from VFWs to festivals.

Rejuvenated from the band’s new energy, the band linked up with Grammy-winning producer/engineer Scott Jacoby (Coldplay, Vampire Weekend, Ronnie Spector) and headed to upstate New York to record Most Of Us. Following that album’s 2016 release, the band then toured coast-to-coast with power-pop songstress Rachael Yamagata in 2017, along with its own headlining shows along the Eastern Seaboard.

Upcoming new track “On The Wire” follows up 2018/2019’s single “The Madness,” with a late-winter album release to come.
