Chris Ross & The North return for another delightful show at Seasons' Downunder Club! This time around they're bringing their friends the Tune Squad for this special show on May 25th!
ABOUT CHRIS ROSS & THE NORTH:
Ross spent the better part of a decade tucked away on the coast of Maine developing his voice as a writer. Inside the arsenal of tracks he’s penned, one finds dangerous, hard-hitting reflections; stories of love, life and longing, appealing because they’re so real. Tinted with an appetite for self-destruction, his writing style is smooth and eloquent while remaining sincere to genuine grit of experience.
The musicians forming The North provide a masterful blend of country + rock & roll swagger, a winning combination with Ross’s candid storytelling. Anchored by Ryan Curless (drums) and Caleb Sweet (bass), the rhythm section hits where you want it to, and hard – a fine tuned compatibility of artistic bonds reaching back to early childhood perceptible to the naked ear. Rounding out The North is guitarist Zachary Bence, a virtuoso with the ability to transition between ear-scorching guitar solos and beautiful sonic swells on the drop of a dime, his grace as a musician as boundless as his contribution to the band’s steady concord.
Chris Ross and The North are rubber tramps out of necessity, lending to the ideal consumption of their sound: Live + loud with a stiff drink in one hand and open road on either side of the night.
"They’ve harnessed the potency of traditional country songwriting and meshed it with head-moving alternative rock sound." -Darius McGrew, indiebandguru.com
"Fans of Zac Brown Band, Jason Isbell, John Hiatt, and storytellers of similar ilk, will find this album and act most appealing." -Bluebird Reviews
