About Railroad Earth

Railroad Earth was formed in early 2001, and would take their namesake from beat writer Jack Kerouac's work "October in the Railroad Earth". The glue that would bind the band together would be Brian Ross, who would be the band's manager and mentor throughout their career. Guitarist and vocalist Todd Sheaffer would perform alongside Tim Carbone, John Skehan, Andy Goessling, Carey Harmon and Dave Von Dollen to create the original Railroad Earth. With less than a month to rehearse and write songs, manager Ross pushed them into the studio for their first demo, which alongside a promotional video, would land them their first gig at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival. Ross would continue to push the band to release their first album in time for their debut performance, which would drop in the nick of time before their debut performance.

Their first performance would catapult the band forward as Sugar Hill Records immediately signed the band. Within a year they would follow up, to growing critical and fan acclaim and ever increasing exposure on the airwaves. By 2007 the band was playing the biggest events across North America, including the legendary Austin City Limits Festival. Despite occasional shakeups in the bands lineup, including the departure of Dave Von Dollen and the addition of Andrew Altman, the band has maintained their signature sound all the while increasing their mainstream exposure and fanbase. Now on their seventh album, Railroad Earth is showing no signs of slowing down as they continue to push the limits of genre, sweeping the nation with their iconic newgrass sound.


Previous Hits

The bands debut album was 2001's The Black Bear Sessions. Still the flagship album of the band's unique sound, hits such as "Seven Story Mountain" "Head" and "Railroad Earth" started the band's early momentum towards stardom. In particular, the self titled "Railroad Earth" would become one of the bands best known and most iconic songs. Their 2002 follow up, Bird In A House would gain much fan acclaim and accelerate the band's already busy tour schedule. The singles "Like a Buddha" and "Mighty River" would get the band radio play and hype as they began to become regulars in root and folk festivals across the country.

Their harmonic sound would continue to evolve with their fourth album Amen Corner, with "Been Down This Road" receiving particular attention. Other singles from the album, "Hard Livin'" and the cheeky "Waggin' The Dog" would catapult this album into one of Railroad Earth's best yet.

The band's most recent albums, including their fifth self titled Railroad Earth and Last of the Outlaws, would see depth and evolution in Railroad Earth's unseen in their previous albums. Railroad Earth in particular would see musical experimentation and solidify them as a formidable jam band as it clocked in as the band's longest track, the 11 minute instrumental "Spring-Heeled Jack".


Trivia

Much of the band's early success can be attributed in part to their hard working manager Brian Ross, who would constantly push the band forward in their early days.

The band has recorded albums with over five different labels, including Bos Music, Sugar Hill, SCI Fidelity, and One Haven Music. However, their manager Brian Ross has been a consistent figure within the band since its inception.
