Sol Roots and Eric Scott perform together for another edition of TheCrossover.TV. In this video the Sol Roots Trio performs their original track “What Your Lovin’ Done.”
Sol’s roots run deep into the blues but his unique versatility has allowed him to gig with Latin, African, reggae, gospel, jazz, R&B, and folk performers. Learning from funk, blues, and soul heroes such as Roy Lee Johnson, Albert White, and Robert Lee Coleman, Sol was inspired to bring ancient messages to the present. He created a buzz with his underground blues hiphop album entitled “Volume: Blue“, that carried him overseas to perform these sets live.
When D.C. venues were ready to reopen after COVID-19, indie pop duo GLOSSER was ready to perform. The two, Riley Fanning and Corbin Sheehan, formed the band pre-COVID out of a shared aesthetic vision and passion for music storytelling.
Their first album *DOWNER* was released in January 2023, however they have decided to release a [__deluxe version__](https://open.spotify.com/album/0KLORhtj3ohV4FtbdjoKu5?si=iNZX9fiZSm2M6V8pRdBkow) exactly one year later containing four new tracks – two remixes, a reimagined song, and a cover – that they are hoping will give it a second life and allow them to continue performing around the area.
The band explains that they have spent many shows opening for touring bands that traveled through D.C. “We made music and then venues started to open again,” Sheehan says. Rather than having the “typical grungy” D.C. band experience, they uniquely went straight to club shows.
