“Another Life”, the new rock album from artist Fred Gross, is a brief departure from the blues instrumentals heard on “The Weather Channel”, that he is becoming so well known for. Over his career, Fred has written and performed all types of music, from blues and jazz, to rock, pop, and country!! While this CD possesses a classic rock feel with a slight metal edge, the evidence of blues is still apparent from time to time. Like many musicians who grew up in the 60’s and 70’s, Fred’s musical aspirations began with “Rock n’ Roll”.
Fred has always had the music in his blood, literally !! A descendent of the 19th century composer, Franz Schubert (The Bee), his musical roots run much deeper than the average musician. Born in New Jersey, not far from Philadelphia, and traveling from one end of the country to the other for most of his adolescence, probably contributed as well, to Fred’s musical aspirations. He started playing drums and guitar at 16 years of age, and knew immediately it would be a lifelong obsession. Over the years, he developed his own style and finesse with a guitar, as well as the bass and drums. His versatility is quite evident by his writing skills. Throughout his career, Fred has always strived for perfection in his writing, performing and recording of music.
Fred began writing and recording music, and started his own recording studio, then called Sky Productions, in the early 80’s. Over 30 bands later, and a few lost chances at fame, Fred is still writing and recording. In the last six years he has played in four bands and recorded eight compilation CD’s. For nearly three decades, Fred has created and recorded music that has received national radio airplay, as well as national and international TV exposure. Audiences of over 90 million people, listen to his blues instrumentals on a daily basis via. “The Weather Channel”. He continues to receive airplay on radio stations in both Pennsylvania and New York State, as well as national airplay on satellite radio stations Sirius and XMRadio, and is actively pursuing a writing contract overseas.
