Having collaborated for two decades, Rusted Root has honed the perfect combination of musical intuition, freedom and virtuosity, which has allowed them to organically shape their music into it's own distinct and undeniable vision. With eight albums under their belt, over three million records sold and countless nights on the road, Rusted Root transcends age, cultures and musical styles. Liz explains that the members of Rusted Root are drawn to and have explored virtually every form of music. "I am very inspired vocally by anything from Indian to African to Middle Eastern sounds and scales having grown up with a lot of Hebrew music" she says. Michael Glabicki cites the Bee Gees, Elvis Costello, Neil Young, Toni Childs, Black Keys, Black Sabbath and various Afro Pop music as among his influences. The powerhouse ensemble's hypnotic live performances have allowed them to tour alongside Santana, Dave Matthews Band, The Allman Brothers Band, Plant & Page and many others. Now with the release of their newest album, The Movement, the journey continues.

MAD NOISE
What do you get when you compile a group of musically-inclined individuals named Mogli, Khalil, Pharaoh and Chris? An identity crisis with some rhythm. Our courageous musical warriors united in June 2010 and immediately started battling for turf on the streets, corners, and alleys of San Francisco in a DIY-styled effort to spread, what a wino in North Beach would shortly dub, MAD NOISE.

Out of amazement for their sheer audacity, the East Bay Express's Rachel Swan was the first to recognize the group's tenacity. After a year of a grueling campaign on the streets, crashing food festivals and farmer's market, MAD NOISE has been recognized throughout the Bay Area press as "Best Live Act" (Daily Cal), "Best Hyperliterate Busking Outfit" (SF Weekly), and now been "Best Local Band" through SF Bay Guardian's readers poll. So, at this point, you have to start wondering exactly how is it that three college students led by one gonzo graduate student have finagled their way into every possible type of music venue in the area while winning the admiration and loyalty of fans young and old? All in the space of about a year of street performing? There-in lies the magic of MAD NOISE!
