Railroad Earth (formed in 2001) is a notoriously improvisational and progressive Bluegrass, Americana and roots band, hailing from Stillwater, New Jersey, U.S.

Formed in 2001, the earliest incarnation of Railroad Earth comprised of vocalist/guitarist Todd Sheaffer, vocalist/violinist Tim Carbone, mandolin player John Skehan, multi-instrumentalist Andy Goessling, drummer Carey Haron, and bassist Dave Von Dollen. Having been collectivized by future manager Brian Ross, the name was inspired by the Jack Kerouac short story “October in the Railroad Earth”. After a series of practice sessions, the members felt they were on the cusp of something truly unique and brilliant and headed to the studio to record a five-track demo. Manager Ross subsequently sent the demo out to festival promoters and Railroad Earth landed a slot at Telluride Bluegrass Festival in 2001.

Due to the success of the demo, Railroad Earth returned to the studio to record a further five songs which would form to resemble a debut album. Released in June 2011 “The Black Bear Sessions” features the popular singles “Seven Story Mountain”, “Head”, and “Railroad Earth” and was issued by Bos Music. The label Sugar Hill witnessed the group performance at Telluride and instantly signed the band to its roster. Following the release of their sophomore album “Bird In A House”, the group’s national exposure and appeal were gaining momentum aided by showcases by radio stations and online publications. Bassist Von Dollen was replaced by Johnny Grub in 2003, after which Railroad Earth’s third studio album “The Good Life” hit the shelves. Led by the singles “Storms”, “Mourning Flies”, and “Goat” the record was supported by a national tour and followed by the live album “Elko” in January 2006.

The band’s fourth, “Amen Corner” arrived in June 2008, after which electric guitars made their debut on Railroad Earth’s self-titled, fifth album. Following an appearance at the Jefferson Theatre at the University of Virginia, the band released their seventh LP “Last of the Outlaws” in January 2014. Extolled by critics and fans alike, the band supported the release with a headlining national tour, in which the group also headlined the Red Rocks festival for a second time.
