The Clovis Limit Pt.2 27/7/20
Multi-talented, pigeonhole-defying guitarmeister and multi-instrumentalist, Mike Ross recently released his first sweet-sounding single, and today's Video Of The Day, 'The Loser', from his excellent new, genre-crossing 10-track solo album ‘The Clovis Limit Pt.2’, which itself is due out on Friday 30th October. Listeners may well detect the piquant flavours of Humble Pie and similar ingredients in the sound and feel of ‘The Loser’, yet it has less of Mike’s trademark Heavy Blues electric guitar fuzz and drive than many of the tracks on the new album, but that just gives the limelight to his other facets. Indeed, it’s a fine, original song, which begins the roll-out of fresh material from a new album that’s remarkably strong on multiple fronts: a showcase for Mike’s songwriting and musicianship on multiple instruments. The close-knit sound that this impressive, multi-tracked, approach produces belies its one-man-band origins! A man wearing many hats, with aplomb and a grin, Ross is also the vocalist and producer, and he whistles too!
