The Bitteroots are an Atlanta/Decatur-based original jam-rock band founded in 2008. Fronted by female vocalist Laura Dees, the band has a sound that’s been called a “unique brand of soulful rock.” The Bitteroots’ groove-oriented approach to rock n roll has drawn comparisons to the Tedeschi-Trucks Band, Melissa Etheridge and Janis Joplin. From pop melodies to extended jams, The Bitteroots’ sets run the gamut with something for everybody.
Along with Dees, an accomplished songwriter and powerful singer who joined the band in 2010, The Bitteroots also include founding members Bill Taylor on bass and Mike Davis on drums. Guitarist Kyle Bryant joined The Bitteroots in 2013 and saxophonist Derron Nuhfer became an official member in September 2014.
