Common Roots is an original acoustic driven pop/rock band. Our music is very accessible, but has depth as well, both musically and lyrically.


Influences: Acoustic Driven Pop/Rock- David Gray, Hootie and the Blowfish, John Mayer, Dave Matthews Band, Jason Mraz, Ben Harper, Maroon 5, Coldplay, etc.

We are four guys, from four different backgrounds, offering each other something unique. Each member can add something to a tune that none of the other members could have added. The great thing about our music is that it makes you want to move, and still makes you want to think.

The band is a product of hired hands working on a demo Brett was puting together. Things felt so good in the studio that we decided to keep it going. After creating the final lineup of members, we spent hours in the basement creating and polishing. Now, we are spending countless hours on stage in venues all over the St. Louis metropolitan area as well as wrapping up production on our first full length album.
