Citizen Bare is a five-piece Alt Country / Americana Rock band out of the Northern Green Mountains in Jericho, Vermont. Their sound is influenced by a wide variety of genres from folk to hip hop, soul to progressive jam music. Their original bluesy, folk rock sounds are woven together by guitar driven riffs, raw and authentic lyrics, and dynamic harmonies.
Through their music they have been building a presence in the Burlington, VT area since 2007 and gaining momentum towards their musical goals every time they take the stage. The band is comprised of Andrew James (acoustic guitar and vocals), John Gratton (lead guitar and vocals), Darin Savard (drums and vocals), Jesse Cowan (bass and vocals), and Elizabeth Patterson (keyboard and vocals). Each member brings a plethora of musical performance and creation experience that has proven to be invaluable to Citizen Bare.
Citizen Bare creates a blend of music and principle that promotes free thinking and positive relationship with the world around you. Their motto highlights an expression of social justice and the human experience. Live Free, Die Naked
There debut album "Carnival" is just a small sample of the eclectic sound that they generate with fun and thought provoking lyrics. Enjoy!
