Jamroots Mean Serious Business

Jamroots means business. A dynamic powerhouse impelled by four of the most experienced and accomplished musicians from the bay area. Tim Stout lays down phat Bohnam style grooves while his plant style tenor soars over crunchy blues riffs and psychedelic fuzz of guitarists Sean Thomas (Kisschasy) and Jesse Lee (Love Outside Andromeda), grounded by the roots bass styles of Agung Wicaksana.

Since recording their self-titled debut album in 2012, the band has been very busy on the live circuit. From a tour of Agung’s homeland, Bali, to gigs in support of their favourite NFP’s The Thin Green Line and Sea Shepherd Foundation and festival appearances at French Fest, Mornington Main Street Food and Wine Festival and Western Port Festival.

Jam Roots have also provided the soundtrack to ‘Toast’, the winner of the inaugural Mornington Peninsula Film Fest in 2012, which lead to further collaboration with filmmaker Dave McIntosh, including “Tree to Sea”, a documentary celebrating the work of local timber surfboard craftsmen.

Inspired by the prospect of further collaborative opportunities and driven by a stoic DIY ethos, the band have designed and built their own recording studio by the rolling surf of PtLeo beach where they have begun work on album number 2.

Punters can get a sneak peak of material being created for the new album at the ‘Jamroots Sessions’, held at the peninsula’s newest hotspot for live music ‘Soundbar’ in Rosebud West. The ‘Jamroots Sessions’ has an original format, with Jamroots playing house band, providing a platform for local muso’s and creatives young and old, professional and amateur, known and unknown, to come together to share jams, stories and ideas over great food and beers. Considering how popular the night has been over the winter months, it’s not going to take much too blow the roof off this summer!!

Jamroots Sessions’ from 8pm every second Thursday at The Sound Bar, 1625 Point Nepean Road, Rosebud West. Visit www.thesoundbar.com.au for details. For all things Jamroots visit Jamroots on Facebook and Bandcamp.
