    The Process Episode Two | Kristina Kaiser

    Welcome to the new Rochester Groovecast podcast, The Process, with Siena. Listen to honest conversations between artists that reveal the strength, challenges, purpose, vulnerability and joy of living a creative life.

    I’m Siena. I’m a creative human - a musician, artist, and teacher. I’m here because I have Big Questions. How do we build a creative life? What keeps us going? What does our daily process tell us about ourselves? How can we learn from each other? The past two years have been incredibly challenging for all of us, and this uncertain time calls for a fresh look at the creative process. I want to hold space for our grief, resilience, and desire to add our voices to the constantly evolving fabric of humanity.

    122) Anthony Siciliano Chats About Head To The Root's New Album, "Seeker"

    122) Anthony Siciliano Chats About Head To The Root's New Album, "Seeker"

    Episode 122 of the Rochester Groovecast Podcast highlights a returning guest, Anthony Siciliano of "Head To The Roots."

    "From high energy stomp to mellow campfire acoustic, Head to the Roots is the music mind-child of Anthony Siciliano. Anthony pulls at the roots of folk, blues, rock and reggae music. The fabric of his songwriting is both thought-provoking and playful, woven with themes of life exploration, travel, and love, while carrying undertones of spirituality and human coalescence.

    From the main stage at Rochester’s beloved Cornhill Arts Festival to stages spanning across the Northeast, and New England, Anthony has shared his music in New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. In the midst of his musical career, Siciliano has shared the stage with members of Twiddle, and has played with members of The Buddhahood, and Multibird.

    Since September 2020, Head to the Roots has evolved into its mightiest form yet, with joining members Chris Palace (drums) and Drew Rosenberg (bass and keys) bringing power and groove to this newforming trio. Aside from live performance, Anthony continues to write, produce and release original music, where April 2021 marks the horizon line for a brand new album release."



    In this episode, host, Ben Albert, and Anthony Siciliano discuss what's happened this past year, most importantly, Head To The Roots' new album, "Seeker."


    During the podcast, the boys isten to and discuss two brand new tracks, "Seeker" and "Flower City!"

A Rochester music lovers must-have

When it comes to this podcast, all I can say is: WOW! The host is very witty and has a lot of great things to say, and the guests he brings on are always very well chosen. You can tell in every podcast that he is genuinely having a great time. Most importantly, the music played and talked about is absolutely AMAZING. Even if you don't live in Rochester and necessarily know the bands and musicians and important people in the scene that get featured, it's worth a listen for the wonderful music we have here. I recommend it wholeheartedly! Thank you Rochester Groovecast!!!
