The Bottom Dwellers are a four-piece Americana band from Woodland, California. Formed in 2003 by a group of mutual friends and former band mates, this group was the first attempt at a country roots band for many of the members. After a decade of making music, Ivan Sohrakoff (vocals, guitar, banjo), Adam Hancock (vocals, guitar, lap steel), Chris Eynon (drums), and Mark Eagleton (double bass) have two full-length releases under their belt, and have opened for legendary acts such as Billy Joe Shaver, Dale Watson, The Derailers, and I See Hawks In LA.
In 2012, after Adam had moved abroad to pursue a teaching career a few years earlier, the band picked up singer/songwriter and long-time friend, Robbie Thayer who was winding down his band, The Real Sippin’ Whiskeys. The new lineup has allowed the band to focus more on song writing and arranging, and the band plans to release a third album in summer 2013.
When not playing rural Yolo County circuit, you can catch the Bottom Dwellers streaming rehearsals live on their website most Thursday evenings at 7 p.m.!
