Montana had a need for soul music. The Hawthorne Roots took their passion and talent and revved up the genre to another level. The original songs by sisters Emma and Madeline Kelly and Michael DeJaynes have garnered this five piece Bozeman group positive attention and a loyal fan base. Defined by their tightly woven harmonies and relentlessly catchy melodies, The Hawthorne Roots bring a distinctly unique and exciting sound to the Montana music scene. In 2015 The Hawthorne Roots were voted Bozeman’s best new local band and best folk act. In 2016 they received the award for best folk act again. The singers are backed by bassist Dustin Crowson, guitarist Lucas Mace, and drummer/vocalist Michael DeJaynes. Their live performances channel positive energy that connects with the audience and makes for an unforgettable show.
Today The Hawthorne Roots bring a soulful and energetic performance to the stage, every lyric sung with true passion and genuine elegance. The new repertoire explores different emotions and pushes the boundaries of what is known as The Americana genre of music. Their unique style of Revved Up Soul Music has gained momentum and admiration. They do not write by the rules. The music of The Hawthorne Roots comes from nowhere else, but the heart. Stay tuned as this fresh Montana band continues to spread roots.
