Six Mile Grove (+ Bob Wootton)

Artist: Six Mile Grove

Title: Secret Life in a Small Town

Label: Rena’s Kitchen

Home:  www.sixmilegrove.com

It all started in the small town of Lyle, MN (pop. 500) with a skid loader and a fence post, when Six Mile Grove frontman Brandon Sampson was 7 years old. He injured his hand when helping his dad on the family farm. The physician recommended guitar playing for rehabilitation, and a few weeks later, Sampson came home from the music store with a new guitar. His younger brother Brian threw a fit, and was appeased with a shiny drum set. And so the seeds of Six Mile Grove were planted.

The brothers spent years pounding away on their instruments in the kitchen of their great grandmother’s old house, as well as singing in church with their mom, an organist and devoted music lover. Soon Brian’s friend Barry, from across the woods, wanted to join the noise, and so his years of piano lessons began paying off. The boys realized they would need a bass player, put an ad in the paper, and dug up Dezi Wallace from the “big city” of Austin, MN, who arrived courtesy of his mom, as he did not yet have a driver’s license.

Fast forward 15 years, and Six Mile Grove has a lot to be proud of. They have weathered the ever changing music scene as a primarily self-managed, self-produced, and self-recorded band. Their music has evolved accordingly, as an organic, honest voice that has not been tinkered with or tainted by the lure of record labels or flashy music producers. You’re sure to find influences of Minnesota music’s founding fathers; from Bob Dylan to the Jayhawks, Six Mile Grove honours it’s roots, but has also managed to forge it’s own sound and space on a stage without compromise. They hearken most to the genre of Americana, which recognizes the value of songwriting and musicianship over radio charts and record sales, and reflects that in artists as diverse as Emmy Lou Harris and Lyle Lovett. In addition, their friendship, touring and recording with legendary Johnny Cash guitarist Bob Wootton, has lended even more distinctly to their “good all-American boy” sound and style.

Six Mile Grove is releasing it’s sixth album this Spring 2012, titled “Secret Life in a Quiet Town.” In this album, Sampson muses on the responsibilities of providing for a family, keeping love alive, and fighting for what’s right in the world. These themes resonate with all the members of the band, as guys with day jobs, wives and kids. You’ll hear the whines and growls in Nelson’s piano and lead guitar licks; the take-it-easy pace of Wallace’s bass, and the simple to furious tempos in Brian Sampson’s drums. 


Also available on Six Mile Groves label Rena’s Kitchen Records "Guaranteed Cash" with Johnny Cash's Guitarist of 35 years

As Bob Wootton states, “There’s nothing fancy about them and they don’t try to be something they’re not. And that’s what I like about them.”  



Artist: Bob Wootton & Six Mile Grove

Title: Guaranteed Cash

Label: Rena’s Kitchen

THE SONGS AND SOUNDS OF JOHNNY CASH

ACT ONE: It’s 1968, and Bob Wootton quits his job as a bartender, and catches a ride to Fayetteville, Arkansas, to see his favorite musician Johnny Cash play at a political rally for Governor Winthrop Rockefeller. Cash’s band is delayed. Wootton’s girlfriend at the time finds June (Carter Cash), and tells her that her boyfriend knows all of Johnny’s songs. Bob is invited backstage, and handed a guitar. Without an ounce of nerves, Wootton hits every note; he

continues to play across the globe with Cash for another thirty years; from Folsom Prison to the Buckingham Palace. He becomes Cash’s friend, body guard, and even stunt double. When Cash quits playing music in 1998, due to failing health, Bob hangs up his guitar too, and takes a job driving tour buses for other musicians.

 

ACT TWO: It’s 2003, and Wootton meets Six Mile Grove frontman Brandon Sampson, through a mutual friend, when driving a band through Minnesota. Sampson, a long time Cash fan,encourages Wootton to pick up his guitar again. In January 2004, Wootton returns to Minnesota with guitar in hand, to play the “Cash Only” tribute show with Six Mile Grove as his band. The two night show sells out, and the fans go wild for Wootton’s legendary guitar sound, and

uncanny resemblance to Cash, in voice and stature. Wootton begins making frequent trips to Minnesota to tour with Six Mile Grove. Six Mile Grove opens the act with their original music,and brings Bob on stage, to bring “the Songs and Sounds of Johnny Cash” to life for fans of all ages.

 

ACT THREE: It’s 2012, Wootton and Six Mile Grove are taking to the road again, this time to promote the release of this collaboration “Guaranteed Cash,” an album of classic Johnny Cash tunes, as well as the upcoming release of Six Mile Grove’s sixth album, Secret Life in a Quiet Town, due out this Spring.

 

THE PLAYERS: BOB WOOTTON is the real deal. He still picks the “boom chicka boom” out of a guitar the way he did for 30 years when touring with Johnny Cash, as an original member of “The Tennessee Three.” What he says of Six Mile Grove: “We have a good time. They’re like family to me. They’re just good all-American boys. There’s nothing fancy about them and they don’t try to be something they’re not. And that’s what I like about them, because that’s how I am. I try not to act like somebody, because I’m not. I’m just lucky I get to do what I do.” SIX MILE GROVE is a band of earnest-faced hardworking farm boys who’ve been writing and playing original music together since 1997. They are releasing their 6th album, “Secret Life in a Quiet Town,” in spring of 2012.Touring The UK soon in support of both of these albums.
