Railroad Earth is one of Americaʼs greatest bands playing today, plain and simple. They sing of our nationʼs changing landscape and social ills with a commitment reminiscent of Woody Guthrie, while interpolating instrumental timbres that could have been pulled from Celtic or Cajun culture. And as anyone who has caught them live will attest, their concerts are imbued with the fire-in-the-belly passion of straight-ahead, blue collar rock & roll. Then there is the newest album from the New Jersey sextet, which is the most cohesive embodiment of their myriad gifts to date—hence the decision to simply call it Railroad Earth—showcasing nine new selections that draw strength and inspiration from an acknowledgment of our shared past, while also embracing new ideas and celebrating diversity… just like America when she is at her best.

Like their fellow musical travelers, from Bob Dylan and Gram Parsons to Wilco and altcountry chameleon, Ryan Adams, Railroad Earth eagerly embraced change in pursuit of an aesthetic breakthrough. “It was time to do something different,” admits lead singer, songwriter and guitarist Todd Sheaffer. He and his band mates—violinist Tim Carbone, mandolin player John Skehan, multi-instrumentalist Andy Goessling, and drummer Carey Harmon, plus new bassist Andrew Altman—have spent nearly a decade refining their sound and modus operandi. This time, however, they elected to take some cues from their new A&R man, Michael Caplan (Allman Brothers Band, Los Lonely Boys, Kebʼ Moʼ), and change up their game “to get a fresh perspective.” The result is the bandʼs most compelling set to date; encompassing rousing ballads and string-band funk, wistful waltzes and quirky time signature folk.

    Ive not been to the Revolution Hall. I heard its a great venue and I used to live across the street in those apartments when I first moved to Portland, OR in 1985. I have heard of the best shows at this new venue so I would be ECSTATIC to win tickets here! Plus I love the band, the era and genre of music. Please pick me, I need some music in my life now. Things are not going so good for me right now.

    Thank you for always putting on these great giveaways! I left Portland and the love of my life five months ago to move to New Zealand (forever, I thought). New Zealand is a beautiful country, indeed, but so much is calling me home. I am flying into PDX on the 27th, the very SAME DAY of this concert, and my sweetheart will be at the airport to pick me up. I cannot think of a better, more celebratory welcome back to the United States of America than to attend a Railroad Earth show in such a special venue, in my favorite city, with my favorite person. It’s the healthy dose of beautiful Americana I have so been longing for over on the other side of the world. This feels like the chance of a lifetime.
