💥 ARTIST ANNOUNCEMENT… The Mike Ross Band! 💥Born and raised in the Great North but living these days down in the Southland with a steady mind and a thoroughbred plan, Mike writes soul wrenchin’, riff bustin’ songs that will make you want to share the tale of his life’s journey and the lessons he’s learned. Kerrang! called Mike Ross “Burnt in Blues, Soaked in Soul!” — a description that holds true of Mike’s multiple facets: songwriting, multi-instrumental talents, gritty riff-busting, yet eloquent, guitarist and also his vocals, all of which come to the fore on his latest solo releases. He’s a proud DIY artist too, who writes, performs, records, produces & releases his own music. Mike has also collaborated with some of the brightest lights in the UK emerging artists scene, such as Elles Bailey, Jack J Hutchinson & Troy Redfern. What’s more, he’s an international, incessantly touring, musician who has played live music on every continent and in most European countries. Mike Ross’s material proves him to be a man you can rely on to conjure up fuzz-charged Heavy Blues and powerful Rock, to make his guitar soar and sing, and to deliver smart-as-a-whip lyrics. Spinning rock, blues, soul and country into an intoxicating blend (reminiscent of the calm virtuosity of the Allman Brothers combined with the wild abandon of Rory Gallagher), Mike and his band are an unstoppable force of nature and an unforgettable live act. Mike earned critical acclaim from every point of the music compass: Classic Rock, Maverick Magazine, Planet Rock Radio, BBC Radio, Music News. As Henry Yates put it in Classic Rock Magazine: “You need to know Mike Ross.” True then: true now. This will be a real treat… get your tickets today! 🙌www.bluesfestival.co.uk/tickets/Pendle Hippodrome Colne Blues Society Blues Matters Magazine Blues in Britain Lancashire Blues Archive See MoreSee Less
