Formed in the early 90's by singer/guitarist Michael Glabicki, Rusted Root's worldly style quickly charmed fans of roots music and world rock. To date they have released seven albums and sold over three million records worldwide. After debuting in 1992 with the self-released Cruel Sun, Rusted Root signed with Mercury Records and released the 1994 platinum selling breakthrough When I Woke, which featured the massive hits "Send Me On My Way," and "Ecstasy" and "Martyr." Their huge success allowed the band to tour with Santana, The Grateful Dead, Dave Matthews Band, The Allman Brothers Band, HORDE Festival and, perhaps most notably, the highly coveted support role on the landmark Jimmy Page/Robert Plant reunion tour.
