Beat Root has only just begun.
After meeting at a show in London in 2013, solo singer-songwriters Ben Jones and Andrea Magee decided they had unmatchable chemistry. Together Jones and Magee formed Beat Root, a contemporary folk and blues group that incoropates elements of ’60s pop, roots rock n roll, and indie rock into their compositions. In February 2014 Beat Root made an impromptu appearance at SXSW, picking up a support slot for Dale Watson and earning praise from Lucinda Williams. The group prides themselves on honest and organic performances that rely on old fashioned showmanship, devoid of technical manipulations.
Beat Root’s debut album Waiting on a Miracle was recorded in Austin and released this past September. The groups has spent the past couple months in the Live Music Capital and they’ll continue play around Austin until December 7th, when they return to the UK. You can catch Beat Root on Thursday, November 20th at Lucille Patio Lounge or stream them right here at KUTX!
