The musical style of Seattle’s Eastside band Root Seller is best described as ‘Roots-Rock-Americana, ’”From Hank to Hendrix”. Something akin Andy Griffith jamming with the Stones.
Root Seller is fronted by guitarist/singer/songwriter Randy Casey. Randy has major record label recording and touring experience, having shared stages with John Mellencamp, Mellisa Etheridge, Robert Cray and Buddy Guy (to name a few) and has a plethora of film, TV and ad campaign recording credits (Target Corp. Levi’s, Toys R Us, Fox Television, NPR’s “All Things Considered” and many more). Randy uses a wide variety of acoustic and electric guitars (harmonica, too) to seamlessly weave his many styles, textures and arrangements into a unique blend of American[a] music.
Brad Stoll on drums and Martin Rush on bass, otherwise known as the “Sly and Robbie of Woodinville”* are the solid foundation for the Root Seller platform. Brad and Martin have been performing together as a rhythm section for over 15 years. You’ve most likely seen them perform with Black Velvet 4, Eric Madis’ Blue Madness, The Fairly Honest Jazz Band, Second Hand Newz (Fleetwood Mac Tribute Band), and Mary Wiles or with a handful of other bands around town. When you’re really good, you’re busy and these cats are busy providing the juice for Root Seller!
Root Seller is as dynamic as they are talented; rockin’ enough to dance to yet quiet enough to enjoy listening comfortably. Whether it’s a solo/acoustic performance or the full ensemble, Root Seller delivers high quality entertainment every time.
*Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare are a Jamaican rhythm section that have recorded with many top acts as diverse as Herbie Hancock, Brittany Spears, No Doubt and Mick Jagger
