The Tumbling Tumbleweeds formally announced the departure of R.J. Mills from the group in February saying, R.J. Mills has moved to the East Coast to pursue a solo career and all The Tumbling Tumbleweeds wish him the very best of luck always! Group Leader, Tumbleweed Rob Wolfskill in a more personal note said, We will really miss R.J. He has been our brother since the beginning of The Tumbling Tumbleweeds and we have many wonderful memories that we will always share with him. It is indeed bittersweet as we head into the busiest and most exciting time of our career so far but we know R.J. is following his dreams and we support him completely and wish him the very best. Meanwhile, back here at Tumbleweed Ranch the show must go on and we are very excited about our new addition to the group, David Elsenbroich. Hes a dynamo!
David Elsenbroich was hand selected by The Tumbling Tumbleweeds and it was only after an interview and of course, a jam session with R.J. Mills that R.J. himself said, Yup, hes the right man for the job! It was only with R.J.s blessing that The Tumbling Tumbleweeds would have felt ultimately confident in their choice for his replacement so they are indeed proud now to present him as their new member.
