With their evocative roots-pop songwriting, and a sound that is one part American Beauty-era Grateful Dead, one part Old & In The Way and one part New Grass Revival, with a dollop of ’70s Neil Young added, you can begin to get a sense of the unique sound of Railroad Earth. Driven by the classic sounding, yet contemporary feeling, songs of Todd Sheaffer, Railroad Earth uses bluegrass instrumentation to create tuneful, catchy rock music. The Good Life finds the band refining their sound even further to come up with their most accessible, produced, crossover-potential album to date. The variety of instruments creates a rich texture that incorporates elements of bluegrass, folk, country, Celtic, jazz and rock.
