Local Mornington band President Roots are so excited about their new album that they are playing three shows in a row at well known venues across the Peninsula on November 14, 15 and 16.

The Heritage, GPO and Baha supply the stage as the folk-rock group provide us with tunes from their latest release Late Night Radio. The new album sees the band evolve from its alt-country -Americana beginnings into a more sophisticated, soulful sound which was recorded in Blairgowrie and fine-tuned in America and the UK.

Their fourth record release sees them team up with Hilton Melder, as part of a fine brass section, backwards guitar soloist Chris Stockley and local legend Lisa Bard in an album that targets a specific period of the 70s. Simon, Pete, Greg and Tony wanted to evoke memories of their collective early childhoods from 1972-75 which was a golden age of some amazing music by artists like JJ Cale, The Rolling Stones, Steely Dan and Van Morrison.

The guys continue their great work on this album following up previous record Feelin’ Fooled which hit the airwaves in 2012 and was one of the most played on community radio in that year. With a great local following, the group wanted to be on their A game as they wrapped up a chapter in the bands history that has earned them a lot of recognition.

So, fans of rock and roots, scratch that itch and enjoy a variety of tunes with President Roots and their latest album Late Night Radio, released November 1. For more info go to presidentroots.com.
