Dynamic Variation:

Live Music with Rodney Rice

Oct 4, 2021


Now based in Colorado, Rice was born in Morgantown, West Virginia in the coal-mining-heavy Appalachian Region. With the album’s lead track, “Ain’t Got a Dollar,” Rice holds a working-class mirror up to society. Rice also channels his early inspiration in “Company Town,” with reference of the 2010 Upper Big Branch Mine disaster, in which 29 miners lost their lives.

Rice is now based in Littleton, Colorado, a fitting location just a stone’s throw away from Red Rocks, the legendary performance venue with a natural amphitheater.

Rodney Rice now examines the human condition through a songwriter’s lens, and his SAME SHIrT, DIFFERENT DAY offers a dozen solidly formed tunes, inspired by the musical explorers who came before him, but ultimately shaped by his uniquely fresh perspective.
