Guyanese singer/songwriter JUKE ROSS releases his debut EP GREY at all digital retailers via Republic Records. Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump.
The artist first introduced the EP with the breakout single “Colour Me” earlier this year. Just last month, he debuted the most recent single “Shadows in the Dark.” Its pastiche of dusky tones and palpable acoustic soul immediately resonated with audiences and tastemakers as Pigeons & Planes wrote, “The right movie placement could make this song an overnight smash.” The EP expands upon that sensibility, showcasing the expanse of JUKE’s repertoire.
He shared, “GREY are the songs that provided momentary distraction; songs that defined a feeling I don’t completely understand yet cuts the same with each listen.”
Located on South America’s northern mainland, the celebratory and life-affirming spirit of Guyana remains an undercurrent of JUKE ROSS’s songwriting. The youngest of 14 siblings, he can recall falling in love with music at a young age. The family radio played everything from Caribbean standards to Bob Dylan and Michael Jackson, and he would sit and listen for hours on end. Inspired by his nurse mom, he enrolled in medical school. In the midst of his studies, guitar beckoned to him. JUKE feverishly began penning music. Among those early compositions, he created “Colour Me,” which became an independent phenomenon, landed him a deal with Republic Records, and positioned him as one of 2017’s most exciting artists to watch!
