The Bitteroots says
Come join us on May 16 when Decatur’s own rock band, The Bitteroots, return to their home-base of Eddie’s Attic to celebrate a milestone in their history – SEVEN incredible years as a band. Who knew what started out as a small group of guys playing music in a living room in Oakhurst would last this long? They will be telling some war stories, toasting the band members who have moved on and playing everyone’s favorite Bitteroots songs. We also expect that they’ll be debuting some songs we hope become everyone’s new favorite Bitteroots songs. Come early as they will be joined by another awesome Decatur band, The Liberators, who will open the show!

The Bitteroots are an Atlanta/Decatur-based original jam-rock band founded in 2008. Fronted by female vocalist Laura Dees, the band has a sound that’s been called a “unique brand of soulful rock.” The Bitteroots’ groove-oriented approach to rock n roll has drawn comparisons to the Tedeschi-Trucks Band, Melissa Etheridge and Janis Joplin.From pop melodies to extended jams, The Bitteroots’ sets run the gamut with something for everybody.Along with Dees, an accomplished songwriter and powerful singer who joined the band in 2010, The Bitteroots also include founding members Bill Taylor on bass and Mike Davis on drums. Guitarist Kyle Bryant joined The Bitteroots in 2013 and saxophonist Derron Nuhfer became an official member in September 2014.

The Bitteroots have released four compilations of original music, the latest being the single “Under the Big Sky,” recorded in the fall of 2013 at The Music Farm studio by Mark van Allen (Govt. Mule, Indigo Girls, Blueground Undergrass, Zac Brown Band, Whiskey Gentry). The melodic title track is accompanied by two bonus tracks, the hard-rocking “Defenseless” and a re-tooled version of “Try Me Again” which first appeared on the band’s debut release, “French Fries,” in 2011.

Other releases include 2012’s full-length “Central of Georgia” and 2013’s “After The Rain.”

The Bitteroots have shared the stage with: The Freddy Jones Band, Allgood, Col. Bruce Hampton, Arrested Development, 7 Walkers (Bill Kreutzmann of The Grateful Dead), George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Anders Osborne, Coy Bowles (Zac Brown Band), Dead Confederate, Cigar Store Indians, Adron, The Deadfields, The Sundogs, The Shadowboxers, Ruby Velle & The Soulphonics, The District Attorneys, Lindsay Rakers Band, Eliott Bronson, Sydney Rhame, Kristen Englenz, Greco, Tedo Stone, Saint Francis, The Longshot Saints, honey honey, and many other great bands and artists.

The Liberators are a rock and roll band from Atlanta, GA. The Liberators channel bands like the Allman Brothers, the Black Crowes, the Grateful Dead and the Black Keys to create a greasy boogie all their own. They are currently working to record an EP and subsequently their first full length record, Welcome to Tomorrow.
