Saltwater Grass sounds like Florida. From South. FL. rhythm to North. FL. blues-funk, what six guys in their early twenties started a year ago has picked up steam.
An organic conception of South Florida Funk & Folk, North Florida Blues & Greens, Afro-Jazz rhythms, with subtle Reggae breakdowns.
Saltwater Grass is a soulful mix of styles reflecting their diverse backgrounds and deep connection to their music. Backed by a Miami-born percussionist, Western Florida drummer, and fronted by a singer trained in bluegrass pickin' circles in the back woods of Central Florida. The bands sound is filled out with a blues driven electric guitar, a rock-solid bass, and man bouncing between a wailing harmonica and sax.
After recording their self-titled debut full length album in late November 2008 with engineer Tom Pisani (The Band, Van Zant, The Machine) Saltwater Grass has been working hard on spreading their music from their home in Jacksonville Beach and beyond.
Over a year later and now finished with their second album, titled, "Out of the Everywhere," Saltwater Grass is relentlessly infiltrating ear drums of suspected and unsuspecting music go-ers all around the South East! Featured at Major Festivals like, Bear Creek Music Festival, SpringFest, Black Water Music Festival, and stretching as from from The Florida Keys to Coast of South Carolina, Saltwater Grass has been and always will be Road Ready, Tried and True.
With shows booked around FL, GA, SC into early summer 2011, the band continues to grow and evolve as their audience grows bigger, greener, stronger.
