### NCSC Artist: Dr Oakroot ###

www.ncsongwriters.org [cached]

Dr. Oakroot Dr OakrootDOCTOR OAKROOT was born in a taxi with no brakes on the way to hospital in New Haven, Connecticut... "and I haven't stopped rolling since."Oakroot studied guitar, bass, and flute at the North Carolina School of the Arts in Winston-Salem, NC, and began busking (performing on the street for tips) in 1978.In the early '90s, he played bass, guitar and other instruments in Kalamazoo, MI based Common Sounds.It was during this period that he started seriously writing songs.In 1994, Oakroot co-founded Chapel Hill based Emrys, in which he played bass and eventually became the lead singer and principle songwriter.In 1998, he split away from Emrys to form Dr Oakroot's TONIC in order to take his songwriting more in the direction of his unique approach to finger-style blues.Update, Jan 2000: Dr Oakroot's TONIC has broken up, but, as Oakroot says, "This is actually a good thing... I'm more than ready go back to playing solo so I can concentrate on getting back to an acoustic root-blues sound.""[Oakroot's] been playing guitar for 30 years and has developed a mean slide delivery."Chuck Waters, The Independent Weekly"Dr. Oakroot, clearly a crowd favorite, plays rock, blues and jazz, and sounds like a funky version of Garrison Kellior.
