ROD WASHBURN / Bio

Singer/songwriter Rod Washburn brings an element to the table that has been missing from modern music: honesty. His down-to-Earth Americana/Country tunes aren't the result of marketing or advertising. It's simply the result of a life lived well. Washburn was born in Bellows Falls, VT and raised in New Hampshire before moving to Connecticut in his early teens. Washburn writes songs that are equal parts Country, Americana, Blues and Southern Rock. Songs such as Goodbye River, Over You and Might Turn Around recall some of the best work from legendary artists such as The Allman Brothers, The Black Crowes and even a bit of Grand Funk Railroad." I believe, like many other artists do, that we have struggles that are or seem bigger because we seem to believe we are special," he explains." I try very hard to put my message and beliefs into a story and attempt to look at them from other points of view. It is, to say the least, therapeutic for me and, I hope, for others". He spent much of the 80's playing and recording as a guitarist for numerous bands. He's performed in venues all over the country and has also had the distinct honor of opening for Dickie Betts, The Derek Trucks Band and John Mayall, on separate occasions. He's even met and performed alongside the legendary Johnny Winters.
"Songs for a Sunday morning" which was recorded by Washburn and Producer Eric Lichter captures a rich 70's style album feel derived from the use of many vintage sounds and was mastered analog on 2 inch tape to keep this sound throughout.
