Feature Web Recording of The Week - May 24/10
Fredericton New Brunswick's Ross Neilsen and The Sufferin' Bastards release their new recording 'Redemption', May 25, 2010.
To say that Ross Neilsen is a dedicated, chronic over achiever would be an understatement. Recently, he has been honoured with a nomination for Best New Artist at The Maple Blues Awards, two Rising Star nominations from CBC and back-to-back Blues Album of the Year nominations from the East Coast Music Association.
A true road warrior in every sense, Ross Neilsen has spent much of the last two
years living out of his van. Two albums in six months, over 200 four-hour shows
a year, and a logbook of over 80,000 kilometers covering three national tours.
Ross Neilsen's latest recording, Redemption, was recorded at the famed Zebra Ranch Studio in Mississippi and it's the ﬁrst recording that bears the name of Neilsen's long-time backing band, The Sufferin' Bastards, with Shawn Worden on bass and Karl Gans on drums.
Whether telling tall tales or capturing the spirit of the blues through his own originals and unique covers in his intimate solo shows or combining clever lyrics with old school, in-your-face guitar playing with his band, Ross Neilsen will take you on an emotional journey through the joys and pains of life, death, triumph and defeat. Neilsen will touch your heart, soul, body and mind, sending you home to sing yourself to sleep. And in the
morning? You will want more, much more.
