Patrick Norman, bassist of the Pittsburgh phenomenon band, Rusted Root has released his first solo studio album, Digital World. Rusted Root burst onto the national scene in the mid-90s. The bands world-beat influenced pop-rock led to sales of over 3 million albums and they remain a valid touring presence to this day. Now, Patrick Norman has successfully stepped out of his parent bands shadow with his first solo release. The collaboration with DJ 7up adds a different twist to his signature sound, that will not only impress his Rusted Root fans, but will bring in new respect as well.
