"Sweet Root"

Louisiana-based Americana and Southern tinged rockers Sweet Root have released a self titled EP. With three coice tracks, these guys have a distinct sound. It’s rough, raw and edgy – just like the subject matter they sing about.
From the opening jangle of rock-inspired guitars, these guys
claim attention on the energized "Half A Mile Away". It’s a
catchy tune that could happen if radio breaks with its formatted
constraints. Telling of the misery of losin’ and leavin’, all watched from a
a pick up cab on a gravel road, half a mile away, our hero’s gone and he can’t come home, while his lady
love is burning midnight candles.
The relationship whine doesn’t become a whimper, thanks to the bruised and honest vocals of Kansas-born Dustin Powell. With the taut playing of his band mates – Brett Smith (drums), David Wallace (guitar, vocals) and Lance Dubroc (bass, vocals) – Powell handles
hardship well with a voice that aches with country sincerity.
The EP rounds out with more heart-on-sleeve fare, the moody and tormented plight of "Tuesday
Night", and the realization that it’s later than that on "Matter Of Time".
Check out the guys at their Myspace site. There, they have a host of shows that’ll take them from
Louisiana to Colorado. If they make your neighborhood, do yourself the favor – see the show, buy the album. - Country Stars Online
