UPROOTED . FEATURING ‘RUSTED ROOT’ FOUNDER & LEAD VOCALIST, MICHAEL GLABICKI
WHEN I WOKE – 25th Anniversary Tour
Michael Glabicki, lead singer, songwriter and guitarist for Rusted Root fuses musical mastery and shamanic inspiration into his music and live performances. In his most prolific period to date Glabicki is focusing his energy on The Uprooted Band to carry on the legacy of Rusted Root’s energetic music while recording new music for their debut album due out next Spring. To honor the past, Glabicki is taking Uprooted on tour to perform the multi-platinum selling album When I Woke in its entirety. Rusted Root’s When I Woke, spawned the Meg-hit “Send Me On My Way” along with fan favorites “Ecstasy” and “Martyr” among many others that went on to chart on Billboard’s Top 40 and Hot 100.
“Uprooted has masterfully expanded the landscape of the older Rusted Root songs and created a new intuitive and magnetic vision of the material” says Glabicki, “These inspired performances not only energize and expand the hearts of the crowds but also show us how to take the new music to the next level”.
Rusted Root, lead by Michael, built their career around dramatic performances; their polyrhythmic, multicultural rock-and-soul picked up fans like a junkyard magnet as they swept across the nation on tour. Glabicki continues to keep this tradition alive through his new project, Uprooted.
The Uprooted Band Featuring Michael Glabicki of Rusted Root, with Dirk Miller on guitar and vocals, Zil Fessler on drums, Shawn Hennessey on percussion, Erik Kramer on bass and Daisie Ghost Flower and Emily Victoria on background vocals, Uprooted is a liberating project for Glabicki. He says “I looked to the past and imagined where I wanted to go and realized this band is the perfect vehicle to take me there.” This tour will focus on the energy and excitement Rusted Root brought to all of their fans, and keep the spirit of the music moving forward.
