Railroad Earth Discography

Railroad Earth was formed in January 2001. The original line-up of the group was Todd Sheaffer, John Skehan, Tim Carbone, Andy Goessling, Carey Harmon and Dave Von Dollen. The group recorded demo material in February and April 2001 which became their first album. Johnny Grubb replaced Dave Von Dollen on bass before the release of their third album in 2004. Johnny Grubb left the band at the end of 2009 and was replaced by Andrew Altman.
