Not since the emergence of John Popper and Blues Traveler in the early 1990’s has an artist successfully brought a non-traditional instrument to the forefront. Following in the same trail-blazing footsteps is ROSS CHRISTOPHER, an artist that plucks the electric violin from complete obscurity and places it front and center, holding down main melodic duties in a forward-thinking alternative rock sound.
ROSS CHRISTOPHER is “intensely original,” creating gritty acoustic textures and delivering them with confidence and zeal. Clearly influenced by groups such as Dave Mathews Band, Radiohead, Led Zeppelin, and U2, ROSS CHRISTOPHER weaves intricate sonic textures while telling stories accumulated along life’s long, winding road. Resonating with questions, intimacy, faith, love, and tales of growth and transition, the lyrics are ubiquitous and speak to the human experience. With songs arranged to pop-perfection, it’s only a matter of time before ROSS CHRISTOPHER rises to the top of the charts.
Ross Christopher''s 5th album, The River Child, "just might be one of the more eclectically exciting albums to grace the market in 2008. Ross Christopher''s The River Child soars at times like Radiohead, rages like Spirit Of The West and has a bare emotional component similar to Ben Folds'' recordings.
The River Child opens with Two, sounding like something Jay Semko might have dreamed. The River Child has an airy brilliance to it that is disturbing and wonderful all at once. Blinded My Eyes (Wasting) delivers an ethereal rock sound that skates the chasm between Radiohead and late Pink Floyd. Be sure to check out Little White Anger, which seethes in its own discordance. Other highlights include Whispering Lilies, Amazing Grace and Perfect Sound.
Ross Christopher marches to the beat of his own drummer, not managing to sound exactly like anyone in particular while giving definite nods along the way. The River Child is the sort of album that folks may look back on in several years as a watershed moment."
