Roostand

For over ten years, Rootstand has set course from the uplands and urban jungles of Michigan to seek their fortune on the seas and sounds of the roots of America and beyond. From fair shores to foul weather, Rootstand has remained stout-hearted; an honor that is reflected in the strength of its crew.

Adrian+Meredith

Always been ones to march to their own drum, Adrian + Meredith make a different sort of roots racket. More Than A Little, finds the pair's debut putting its own spin on Americana music, roughing up the genre's edges with the rule-breaking spirit of punk, the vintage twang of old-timey folk, the sneer of rock & roll, and even the frenetic bounce of early Swing and jazz manouche.

More Than A Little brings together two performers who grew up on opposite ends of the musical spectrum. Before meeting his future wife at a show in Washington DC, Adrian was born on the Canadian/Detroit border, raised on rock, punk and soul music, with a carnival barker's croon and an off-the-wall «clawhammer banjo» approach to playing the acoustic guitar. Meanwhile, Meredith was a nearby Ann Arbor MI native who cut her teeth in the old-time music scene, where she played traditional fiddle and clogged. Those two approaches come together with Adrian + Meredith, a project that honors the traditions of Folk and Americana music while pushing beyond those genres' boundaries. Produced in East Nashville by Mark Robertson, More Than A Little is being released in part via an innovative partnership with Daniel Lanois' Canadian streaming company, UpRise.FM.

Adrian was already 10 years into an acclaimed solo career when Meredith made a guest appearance on his 2014 release, ROAM. Since then, the pair's partnership has grown into a full-time collaboration, with the two swapping harmonies, trading solos, and acting as co-pilots throughout their debut album. Returning from Adrian's previous record is five-year bandmate Paul Niehaus on pedal steel, while JD Wilkes of the Legendary Shack Shakers and Fats Kaplin of Jack White's touring-band make guest appearances.

The result is a record influenced by the group's time on tour, with songs that celebrate the joy of hitting the highway with your romantic partner («Birthday Cakes,» «Old Midwestern Home»), and examine the darker corners of an entertainment industry that's rarely, if ever, fair («Bank,» «Fixer»). Equal parts defiant and driving, More Than A Little is a rallying cry from two road warriors who, after more than a dozen combined years in the music business, are too smart to play by the industry's rules and too enthralled to turn their backs. It's a love letter to a new genre of music, and a call to arms for independent artists with true vision.
