The Bitter Roots a rock n roll band from Seattle are Jeff Stetson, Ben Koostra and Don Allen.

The Bitter Roots began in 2008 when Ben Koostra moved to Seattle and reconnected with Jeff Stetson, having been friends long ago in their hometown of Missoula MT. Jeff had written a bunch of songs and was in the process of putting together a new band when Ben showed up and agreed to join. Two albums a self titled and Moral Hazard emerged in the first couple of years and the band began to garner some attention from college radio stations around the country and from the press. Chiaroscuro is the 3rd full length release for the band. It is a rich and full diverse Album. Chiaroscuro has to date reached as high as #26 on the iTunes New Rock Release chart and has been on the College Music Charts across the country for the Month of October 2012 and beyond.

Jeff who is the creative force and primary songwriter for the band mainly writes about themes of an intensely personal nature, sometimes autobiographical, sometimes with an agitating left leaning political bent. The work is as authentic as it is original, there is real meaning here for those who take the time to understand the words. Each record is filled with songs of Love and Redemption as well as songs of Anger and Betrayal, and always a light hearted relief tune or two as well.
