The Bottom Dwellers are a four-piece Americana band from Woodland, California. Formed in 2003, the group has three full-length albums under their belts: Twang Americana, released in 2005, Think I Need a Drink, released in 2008, and Deep on the Line, released in 2014. They are currently finishing up their fourth album, to be released in Spring 2018.
With original songs ranging from gritty twang to sweet and creepy ballads, the Bottom Dwellers have a uniquely diverse but distinctly Northern-Californian sound. Their broad range of songs within the Americana realm has landed them on the bill, opening for acts such as the Grammy-nominated Billy Joe Shaver, Dale Watson, Red Meat, and the Derailers. They have played a variety of venues such as the Palms Playhouse in Winters, the Crystal Bay Casino in Lake Tahoe, dive bars from SF to Humboldt County, and events at local farms in the Capay Valley.
The Bottom Dwellers’ music is played on local independent and college radio stations, and their song “Company Truck” received national airplay on NPR’s Car Talk. In 2007, the Bottom Dwellers were awarded a Sammies Reader’s Choice Award for Outstanding Country/Bluegrass Band at the Sacramento Area Music Awards. With more than 14 years of writing and playing music together, the Bottom Dwellers have a musical connection and “band sound” only achieved through the test of time. The Bottom Dwellers have recorded music available to purchase online, or via most online music services (Apple Music, Spotify, etc.)
The Bottom Dwellers play their own compositions at local events, farms, celebrations, and venues. Their Americana music is well-liked by large crowds, such as the City of Davis Fourth of July Celebration, yet fits well in small-concert setting like the Palms Playhouse in Winters, CA. The band plays shows in a variety of settings, from professional—like the Yolo County Farm Bureau 100-year Anniversary Celebration with local celebrities and state senators present, to family restaurants and local breweries with blue-collar, ethnically diverse clientele. The Bottom Dwellers pride themselves on their music, punctuality and professionalism. Below is a select list of recent performances:
A Bottom Dwellers performance is a truly original and local Americana music experience. With vocal harmonies, acoustic and electric instruments, the band blazes into twangy-country reminiscent of Buck Owens, then waltzes into a sweet ballad you’d think was from centuries past. The performances feature as many as 50 original compositions, and up to three sets of music. As well as their original tunes, the Bottom Dwellers have arranged a large, uniquely adapted selection of traditional tunes from early American music. With a variety of songs to entertain, a Bottom Dwellers performance provides one thing for certain; People will go home tapping their toes and humming melodies with smiles on their faces.
