After frequently running into each other at jams, Gordy, JD and Natalia decided it was a cosmic connection, and in the last year they have been playing together as a trio -- JD Dawson and the Cosmic Roots. Gordy is our bass player and pilot of the skies and highways. Some say he is a closet trombone player and his wife Linda admits to hearing strange sounds coming out of there late at night. Natalia, raised on an eclectic musical diet of European tangos, Ukrainian village songs, 60's girl groups and straight ahead jazz, loves to spice things up with her mandolin and renditions of country classics. Together with JD, our troubadour of Hearts and Highways, we revisit the Americana landscape in our own cosmic way sharing JD's original wit and wisdom with the World.
