Michael Glabicki & Dirk Miller (of Rusted Root)
Michael Glabicki & Dirk Miller (of Rusted Root)
It was 29 years ago that Michael Glabicki dropped out of college to start a band. At that time he had no idea what he was going to do or how to get there. Glabicki spent two years learning how to write songs, and create a vision. Rusted Root was then born.

The multi-platinum band out of Pittsburgh, evolved around front-man Michael Glabicki’s distinct sound and grew into a musical entity that has thrived in a non-genre specific category all its own. Rusted Root built their career around dramatic performances; their polyrhythmic, multicultural rock-and-soul picked up fans like a junkyard magnet as they swept across the nation on tour.

In many ways Glabicki is starting this process all over again. He is challenging himself to write in completely new and different ways to create an entirely new sound landscape. Michael takes all the new songs and old favorites Rusted Root has been performing, and performs re-envisioned versions of them in a more intimate setting with Rusted Root’s long time guitar player and background vocalist, Dirk Miller.

A multifaceted musician, producer and songwriter, Glabicki’s talents are unique and extremely uplifting. His solo tour dates and new music are extensions of his creative talent, and will inspire all those who participate.

Time Relapse
There is a rift in current music between the forgettable, oversimplified homogeneity of pop music and the inaccessibly complex depth of more progressive outfits. Time Relapse combines elements from both sides of this dichotomy to create their unforgettable and extremely variable style of music.

Lee and Anthony began playing music together at Penn State University in late 2010 and, after being pushed by friends and co-workers to pursue their musical interests, they began playing out and honing their sound. In order to record their self-titled debut album, they rented a house in North-Western Pennsylvania and spent nine months fervently writing, recording, and producing. The house ended up being infested with mold and sent Anthony to the hospital and almost killed him, however the duo still managed to get their album completed and printed in time for it’s 2012 Cinco de Mayo release.

Incorporating components of bands such as Led Zeppelin, Frank Zappa, Dave Matthews Band, Incubus, Pink Floyd, King Crimson, Dispatch, and Umphrey’s Mcgee, Time Relapse places an equal emphasis on every instrument, allowing each one to hold its own throughout their entire catalogue.

Never staying within musical borders, each song presents different ideas, influences, and playing styles; while their self-titled album is a conceptually produced experimental journey through a war-torn world parallel to our own, the band's second, third, and fourth albums, “The Figure”, “The Shadow”, and “The Reflection” are progressive psychedelic collages of instrumental set pieces and improvised material, with all tracks recorded live in a single take. Their fifth album, “Universe Calling” combines elements from all their previous works and includes lyrics on the majority of tracks. Different still is their live material which features Lee on acoustic guitar and Anthony on electric or acoustic guitar, with each member periodically switching on and off the djembe for specific songs. Their release “The Machine” pushes their sound to a whole new level, utilizing the electric guitar and djembe to create a worldly, almost ethereal soundscape.

Currently Lee and Anthony reside on Jupiter and are pushing their skills to the limit in order to put out thought-provoking, exciting music that instantly catches peoples’ attention and leaves a lasting impression. The band’s most exciting opportunity to date has come in the form of an opening slot for Tim Reynolds (of the Dave Matthews Band) at the Ardmore Music Hall in Philadelphia, Pa. They have also opened for acts such as Consider the Source, Waka Flocka Flame, Snow tha Product, and AudioPush. Currently past 375 shows performed.
