One of the most prominent national acts to come out of the Binghamton, New York music scene, Driftwood, describes their sound as Shanty Rock. Carving out a name for themselves with electrifying live performances, they bring one of the most unique, raw sounds to the Americana/Roots scene. Incorporating upright bass, banjo, acoustic guitar and violin, the ghost of traditional American folk music lives in their palette. But the melodies, the harmonies and the lyrics are something else entirely.
After the release of their Debut CD “Rally Day” in 2009, the band has spent most of the last 6 years on the road. With club and festival appearances alongside of artists such as Bela Fleck, Old Crow Medicine Show, Rusted Root, Del McCoury, Brett Dennen, The Wailers, Railroad Earth, Robert Randolph, Brandi Carlile, Trampled by Turtles, Leon Russell, Emmylou Harris and Devil Makes Three, Driftwood is making serious waves on the East Coast scene.
