Electric Dirt is a 4-pc. dedicated to playing the music of the late, GREAT drummer / singer / mandolinist / songwriter LEVON HELM. From his ground-breaking work with The Band, to his Grammy-winning solo records, to the work he did with Bob Dylan + Neil Young among others, anything in which Levon had his hands is fair game. Electric Dirt is John Abbey on bass and vocals, Gerald Dowd on drums and vocals, Dave Nelson on guitars and vocals, and Scott Stevenson on keys and vocals.
Soulful Americana band, Rachel Drew & the Bitter Roots, features Rachel's vocals with Alton Smith on piano, Gerald Dowd on drums, Dave Nelson on guitar, and John Abbey on bass. The band, and Rachel's songs, take inspiration from mid-60s R&B, early-70s Ronstadt, Roy Orbison, and classic country. Whether about dreams, family, or heartbreak, Rachel's songs have a intimate, aching quality. Rachel also performs as Dowd & Drew with songwriter Gerald Dowd, sings jazz standards with Tony Richards, and harmony for Peter Joly Group, Phil Angotti, Great Moments in Vinyl, and more.
