Siena Root is a group from Stockholm that's been around since the late '90s. The classic but original sound is founded on heavy organ, strat leads, bass riffing and big drums with bluesy soulful vocals on top.
In the sense that blues is blue, hard rock is black, and reggae is pan African coloured, this music has the colour of siena. It is a warm, earthy colour, originally from the muddy roots of Toscana. Because this sound has roots that go deep, it was natural to let root be a part of the bands name.
Through touring the music has developed in such a way, that jamming and improvising has become an essential element, always keeping you on the edge of your seat. A Siena Root concert is dramatic and exciting, visually, as well as emotionally. It's a dynamic rootrock experience.
"they played a full set over two hours ... the whole show was a trip back into the heydays of heavy bluesy organ-based rock ca. 1971. SIENA ROOT were amazingly tight and heavy,
and they did some jamming and improvisation as it was usual in the 70's, but they never lose the song or came up with some sort of
long-winding boredom" (Klaus Kleinowski, Cosmiclava)
