Chris Ross and 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 and rock & roll swagger, a winning combination with Ross’s candid storytelling. Chris Ross and The North are rubber tramps out of necessity, lending to the ideal consumption of their sound: Live and 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
"Fans of Zac Brown Band, Jason Isbell, John Hiatt, and storytellers of similar ilk, will find this album and act most appealing." -Bluebird Reviews
Chris Ross: Winner of 2014 SONGWRITER OF THE YEAR / New England Music Awards
