ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Not since the emergence of John Popper and Blues Traveler in the early 1990’s has a group successfully brought a non-traditional instrument to the forefront of a rock and roll band. Following in the same trail-blazing footsteps is Kansas City’s ROSS CHRISTOPHER AND THE FAMILIAR VOICE, a group 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 band.

Consisting of a trio of talented musicians including Ross Christopher on vocals and violin, Josh Johnson on guitar, and Justin Amos on drums, this “intensely original” group creates gritty acoustic textures and delivers them with confidence and zeal. Clearly influenced by groups such as Dave Mathews Band, Radiohead, Led Zeppelin, and U2, ROSS CHRISTOPHER AND THE FAMILIAR VOICE 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.

Response to the group has been immediate, and their most recent album entitled “Act Alive” has been received with rave reviews from both critics and fans. It has landed them on bills with nationally touring groups such as Guster, James Taylor, Tom Petty, Gavin DeGraw, Kenny Chesney, The Wallflowers, The Black Crowes, and Carlos Santana, which has also helped them perfect their live show for which they have become notorious. Live ROSS CHRISTOPHER AND THE FAMILIAR VOICE concerts are known for gripping electric-violin solos, seamless guitar work, tight percussive grooves, and intense melodies, all of which are performed with passion and sincerity.

If you haven’t already, grab a copy of ACT ALIVE and be sure to catch a ROSS CHRISTOPHER AND THE FAMILIAR VOICE show before tickets sell out!

STUNNING AND HIT ME JUST AT THE RIGHT TIME
All I can really say is that I'm glad I heard this CD when I did. The mood was just perfect for me. Somehow it all made sense. Each song was a walk with what my emotions were feeling. It almost felt like it was a call and response (does that make sense?). But it still sounded right even after that first listen. So I don't think it was just my enthusiasm of a first run. It has been a great CD ever since and my friends all love it too.
