The Roots, Rhythm, & Soul Tour – Summer 2017


— A new wave of artists are putting their own stamp on the classic sounds and styles of Americana – from Roots, Rhythm & Blues to Folk, Funk and Soul. The Roots, Rhythm, & Soul Tour brings together three of the shining stars of the scene, bonded by a kindred creative spirit and respect for the music – both where it’s been and where it’s headed.

Roosevelt Dime seamlessly combines the feel-good groove of classic Rhythm and Blues with acoustic Americana instrumentation to craft an infectious signature style and sound. By following the strains of Americana back to its roots, they combine aspects of different genres to reveal their common core. Hailing from Brooklyn, New York, the band started in the age-old New Orleans street busking tradition, only it was the bustling avenues of the Big Apple that nurtured their sound. Armed with original songs of hope, love, and conviction that sound birthed from the cradle of American music yet still crucially relevant to the times in which we live, their performances are a “perpetual crowd pleaser” (New York Times) in any setting.

Harry Jay & The Bling are a contemporary R&B/ Funk ensemble based in Boston, MA. Originally hailing from the DC area, the band formed during the member’s first semester at the prestigious Berklee College of Music. Their high energy live shows and formidable musicianship has won over audiences from New England to the mid-Atlantic. Their debut EP “Truth” reached #1 on the Neo-Soul Bandcamp chart and #3 on the R&B/Soul chart. The record was released to wide critical acclaim, and the single “The Way It Goes Down” has been featured heavily on college radio stations up and down the east coast.

Jenna Lotti is a pop-soul singer-songwriter from Boston, MA. Originally writing poetry for self-medication, Lotti began penning open book lyrics at the age of 15. After several years attending local open mics and recording her original compositions on Youtube, she put a band together and took to the legendary Boston music scene. Drawing from her childhood musical influences in Pop, Blues, and Soul, Lotti’s music is a soulful distillation that flirts with both her stirring and sweet sides. Jenna received the nod for Limelight Magazine’s 2015 ‘Female Vocalist of the Year’ and was nominated for “Female Performer of the Year” in 2016 & 2017 by The New England Music Awards.and she has performed alongside national acts such as Hunter Hayes and Buddy Guy, as well as local star Ruby Rose Fox. Lotti released her sophomore EP “Bad Habits” in 2016 and her latest pop driven single “Beauty Queen” in April 2017.
