EarthStone is a fusion of musics & styles, world & urban, always rocking the groove. Begun in the early '90's as an outlet for Rodney's then 2 decades of experience in world beat. The focus has expanded from the early emphasis on african/caribbean/latin and ska/English beat styles to include funk, urban,blues, & psychedelic rock elements. Graced by some excellent musicians over time, EarthStone as heard here has Eddie Checchio as guitarist on a number of tracks & co-composer on some. Multi-instrumentalist Rodney Roach on keys, bass, tenor sax, guitar, harmonica, percussion, rhythm programming, and vocals.
