Sol Roots (Sol & Funk Root) is an official Home Grown Music Network band. Sol is a fierce guitarist and soulful singer who has toured the world with many roots, funk, and blues legends. Sol and his band create a unique blend of rock, blues, reggae, and raw funk, all delivered with deep soul, performing tasty original tunes and bluesy, greasy jams. Sol Roots has toured across the east coast U.S. at many premier festivals and venues and have been on bills with Jon Cleary, Soulive, The Wood Brothers, Robert Randolph, Jackie Greene, Eric Lindell, Walter Wolfman Washington and more.
Sol has performed on stage and in the studio with musical heavyweights Taj Mahal, Kenny Wayne Shepard, and with the international guitar hero Cool John Ferguson, who he performed with steadily for years. Sol has soaked in much from funk, blues, and soul heroes such as Roy Lee Johnson, Albert White, and Robert Lee Coleman, while touring and gigging with these artists. Sol also created a buzz with his underground blues hiphop album entitled "Volume: Blue", that carried him overseas to perform these sets live.
On Friday August 9, the band performs in downtown Roanoke VA at Martins Downtown and features drummer "King" George Penn (Corey Harris, Jah Works), bassist Jake Dempsey, and Sol.
Sol Roots is an official Home Grown Music Network artist, HGMN features some of the best in national rock, jam, and groove artists.
