Album Notes
Ross Bon and the Mighty Blue Kings

Soul . Sweat . Manic Energy

“My music is about the way that I embrace life; with spontaneity and emotion; it’s all about the connection!” says Ross Bon when describing his music.

Bon's latest album release - with the Mighty Blue Kings - "Alive In The City" (his fifth album and fourth independent release, R-Jay Records) marks the return of what has been greatly missing the past 20 years - expressive music - rooted in soul.

It’s a striking blend of rock and soul with a driving blues sense and you will undoubtedly feel the influences that are steeped in Chicago’s rich musical traditions.

"Alive In The City" contains irresistible melodies with great big hooks - soulful dynamic rhythms with charismatic sex appeal; revealing the rich vocals of Ross Bon combined with layers of crisp, rootsy arrangements.

Bon, explains, “This album is about people, from everyday walks of life, and things we all go through. I think everyone relates to something that’s from the heart; there’s something in it for everyone.”

The album begins with the rhythmic pulse of “Tryin’ To Have A Good Time,” reminiscent of the 60’s soulful classics where music was considered verve; and concludes with the compelling “Gimme Love” (both a result of Bon’s collaboration with soul legend Gene McDaniels); these tracks set the tone for the album.

Then add a touch of raucous zeal with “Devils On My Back”, and you experience music you’re able to grab hold of - any of which could be a savvy entry into commercial rock radio.

But it doesn’t end there; "Alive In The City" resonates with passionate improvisations, key to the romantic sweep of their songs, with haunting and intimate ballads such as,
“My Heart Is True,” and “Your Good Thing.”

Even two of the covers “Will It Go Round In Circles,” (Billy Preston) and “It Ain’t No Fun To Me,” (Al Green) capture the essence of what makes Ross Bon remarkable – the ability to bring classic American influences into today’s contemporary music scene.

Pursuing individuality with commitment, passion and diligence… Bon’s music is vital, surprising and rich. Songs that touch the heart will never be out of style;
the “New Indie Soul.”
