Whitewater Ramble (WWR) has announced the upcoming national release of their second studio album Roots & Groove. The band has welcomed back Tim Carbone of Railroad Earth as producer for the second time. Carbone worked with the band on their genre-bending debut release All Night Drive in 2010. On March 22nd, the band will hold an album release party at Mt. Tabor Theater in Portland, OR.

“This release marks significant growth as a band from our debut album to our sophomore release,” says Patrick Sites (mandolin, vocals). “Everything from songwriting, to vocals and harmonies to instrumentation have taken major leaps ahead. All Night Drive was a lot of jams, hype, fast tempos, but lacking on the song side of things. We’ve now settled into a blend of what we call “Roots & Groove.” Our roots in bluegrass and Americana are still very strong and we really have some meaningful songs with messages and things we believe and feel, but the grooves are also a key element of these songs and necessary to keep feet moving and the dance party aspect. It’s a great blend. 2013 will be the biggest and best year this band has seen, with a management team behind us and new and mature record to put in people’s hands. I think the band is poised and ready to make the leap into the national festival scene.”

Described as “High-Octane Rocky Mountain DanceGrass”, Whitewater Ramble (WWR) uses a simple recipe to craft it’s sound: start with bluegrass instrumentation, add drums, and finish with a boundary-less approach to grassing-up everything from disco house grooves to roots to Americana. The Colorado-bred quintet combines the elements of mandolin, fiddle, acoustic guitar, upright bass, drums and vocals to explore the musical boundaries of multiple genres and to fuel their own mixture of original music and innovative cover song interpretations.

WWR has had the privilege of supporting, touring with and sharing stages with Railroad Earth, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, Greensky Bluegrass, Cornmeal, The Infamous Stringdusters, Dark Star Orchestra, Little Feat, Papa Mali, The New Mastersounds, The Gourds, The David Grisman Quintet, Jerry Douglas, Lotus, Splitlip Rayfiled, Members of the String Cheese Incident, Particle, Hot Buttered Rum, Drew Emmitt of Leftover Salmon, DJ Logic, Donna The Buffalo, The Contribution, The Motet, Tea Leaf Green, Henry Butler, Vince Herman and Great American Taxi, Peter Rowan, Tony Furtado and many more.

    Hi PDX Pipeline. Thanks for everything you do for the PDX live music scene.

    Please choose me to win this. Because money is tight and I would love to see
    this band. I saw them the last time they were at the Mt Tabor and they are
    one of my wifes favorite bands. And I would like to suprise her with tickets
    for our 13 year wedding anniversary. Please award me the tickets so I can
    prove to her that the #13 is not always an unlucky #!

    I really like the idea of this different but not exactly new direction the band is taking and it really sounds like they are making great advancement in their songwriting and developing a style all their own. Would love to see this happen in a live setting, please!

    Ohh man, I am currently rounding out a semester in a masters level social work program. I have a 9 mo old baby and I am working. I haven’t been to a concert in over 2 years….I am in desperate need to attend a show! :) I am looking for a little self care and dancing it up with the sweet sound of a banjo makes my heart sing. I am strapped for cash as most college students are. So, in an effort to continue to gear up to serve the community…could you help a girl out? Provide an avenue for some self care with the sweet sound of jamming? Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    My family is from back east. I actually have relatives still living in the hollers of Virginia and West Virginia and I love bluegrass because it tells some of the stories from those places.

    I’ve heard a lot of great things about these guys but finances are a little too strapped for me to justify going. I promise to show up with a bile ‘ole smile and my dancing shoes!!!
