We're Rhythm Rampage. I'm (Brooke) taking over the keyboard with Britta over my shoulder getting ready to tell you about ourselves. When I was eleven years old, I was trampled by my horse and wound up in really bad shape. I had to drop out of regular school and I spent a whole year having trouble walking. In short, that's when I found the healing power of music and that nightmare event eventually turned into our dream of becoming a duo. Join us on our journey! We're indie artists! We play Taylor acoustic & PRS electric guitars and it's all about the music for us hometown girls. To us music is real, raw emotion. The songs we write reflect our souls. We like to cut loose. We're lighthearted. We know life has it's ups and downs, but it's about holding on to those moments that let your heart win. We're here for the inspiration. Music is a constant in our lives. When you come see us in person or listen to our music on our website or a live show, we hope that we can lift your spirits and share a camaraderie in this journey of life through the love of music. Take care!
With moody guitars, thumping percussion and kaleidoscopic vocal tones, Rhythm Rampage is a Pittsburgh based award-winning singer/songwriter duo with a will of their own. Charming audiences coast to coast with intricate guitar playing, impressive vocals, and innovative melodies. Britta and Brooke Dodgen, known collectively as Rhythm Rampage invoke traditional country music storytelling with a modern fusion.
The soon to be released new album Guitar Getaway (SSM Nashville/Sony Orchard) invokes the guitar-driven flavor of the Eagles and Zac Brown Band, thought-provoking lyrics à la Sheryl Crow and the strong frontwoman attitude of Bonnie Raitt. The girls co-wrote the entire 10 song album which was produced by the lead singer of Ra, Sahaj Ticotin, mentored by Bob Marlette, in Los Angeles, California and mastered by the Grammy award-winning Gateway Mastering Studios.
Touring regularly, Britta and Brooke have created quite a buzz playing well over 1,000 shows across the United States and gaining over 270K followers on social media.
