They have continued to produce new, interesting music that is hard to put a label on. It's been called a lot of things; Rock, Bluegrass, Blues, Folk, Country. Whatever you want to call it, they have found a sound that is uniquely their own, weaving 3 or more part vocal harmonies with a rocking backing band, and impressive lead guitar licks. Boot Juice released their debut LP album, Speaking in Tones, in May 2019. In March 2021 Shifting gears, the sophomore record was released. They are currently back in the studio between tours and shows working on tracking their third album.
A smooth sextet that delivers modern Americana and retro-country, Boot Juice can go from graceful to gritty at the drop of a cowboy hat.
Music Connection Magazine
Boot Juice’s unique mash-up of acoustic bluegrass and rock influences was a hit in the region. The name “Boot Juice” speaks to the band’s ability to fuel boot-stomping-filled nights.
Shifting Gears the new release by the California band Boot Juice is an enjoyable album of appealing roots rock that shows the group’s versatility, incorporating intentionally diverse elements of the Americana scene in a tasteful, honest setting. This large group never gets musically unruly, and the lyrical emphasis is on good cheer rather than profundity.
