Rusted Root is an American band from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania known for their unique fusion of acoustic, rock, world and other styles of music, with a strong percussion section that draws from African, Latin American, and Native American influences. Their lyrical content varies but often talks about Christianity and Judaism. Rusted Root has sold more than three million albums worldwide.

The band achieved fame in 1994 with its platinum-selling album When I Woke, which included hit single "Send Me On My Way." The song has been featured prominently in many films and commercials.
