We got 22 of our friends together to put out this all star underground roots CD. This is more than just a CD release though. We pressed these as a promotion to get these bands music out at the Folk Alliance International conference in Kansas City, Mo. This is the core of everything Folk music related. Many radio DJs, festival owners, booking agencies, and publications will be there. We have made a deal with the conference to get a CD to every single registered guest. That is 2000+ people!
This is so much more than promoting Muddy Roots as a brand. We are attending to promote every band that is like us. We are the outsiders. We are the folkies on the fringe. We are the new roots.
Each band will have a few for their merch tables on their next tour. The rest we saved for you. This is a one time deal. Get yours now for only $8! When you purchase a CD you help us promote the scene. Thank you in advance for your support!

Joseph Huber “OLD MOUNTAIN TUNE” (.357) Singer/Songwriter/Multi-Instrumentalist Joseph Huber is a founding member of, and also had spent 6 years of playing banjo and heavy touring with the Milwaukee, WI based “streetgrass” group, the .357 String Band—a group that, despite it’s abrupt break-up, still continues to gain popularity, is known as one of the most influential groups in the recent insurgent underground country and bluegrass movements. Hard living put together with plenty of downtime has offered more than enough motivation and opportunity for his songwriting.
The Tillers “GEORGE STREET BEAT”
The songs they picked were mostly older than their grandparents. Some came from Woody Guthrie, some were southern blues laments, and many were anonymous relics of Appalachian woods, churches, riverboats, railroads, prairies, and coal mines.
Their look didn’t fit the stereotype. They were clearly recovering punk rockers with roots in city’s west side punk rock and hardcore scene. The punk influence gave their sound a distinctive bite, setting them apart from most other folk acts- a hard-driving percussive strum and stomp that brought new pulse and vinegar to some very old songs. But their musical range soon proved itself as they floated from hard-tackle thumping to tender graceful melody, all the while topped by Oberst and Geil’s clear tenor harmonies.

It doesn’t matter if an ocean of rain is falling from the heavens while Joe Huber is playing, you’ll stop and listen. As it did at the Muddy Roots Music Festival in 2012. It simply did not matter. His music was enough to keep folks warm. “Magic” is a word tossed around too loosely but to the people in the field that day it was indeed magical. Joseph Huber is able to bring that same experience to the stage every time and we are happy to announce his next album will be with Muddy Roots Music. We will work hard to get his music to folks everywhere. Those that seek out his live shows deserve it. Official Vinly/CD release date coming soon but we are looking at late spring.
Not only are we proud to have Joseph Huber joining our label but it is with deep conviction that I feel the need to get his music to as many ears as possible. It is deep. It is powerful. It will save you or atleast keep you company when you are alone. He is probably too modest to hear me talk about his music that way but I believe it. I am a fan first and label owner second. This album will sit your ass in a seat real quick and just as easily have you up and dancing the next moment. -Jason Galaz
