Album Notes
As trends in popular music come and go, there are some things that never go
out of style. Great melodies, meaningful lyrics, and real human interaction
in performance come to mind. These elements are all present and accounted
for on Ross Rice recent offering, DWIGHT, on Memphis Records.

As a respected 20 year veteran of the Memphis/ Nashville music axis, Ross
has tread a singular path through the many byways of Rock, Pop, R&B, and the land where these genres were pretty much invented. After
several years cutting his teeth in the Mid South circuit, working with the
likes of Duck Dunn, Charlie Rich, Luther Ingram, and Ron Wood, he formed
(with several close friends) the quintessential late 80's group Human Radio,
whos 1990 eponymous debut was critically acclaimed, and whos first single,
Me And Elvis, reached #28 on the Billboard Album Rock chart. After extensive
touring, the group parted ways in 1992, and Ross continued writing,
performing, and producing, with such notables as Adrian Belew, Rob
Wasserman, Stephen Perkins, Todd Snider, Steve Forbert, Garrison Starr, and
numerous others. A solo release on Steve Earle's E Squared label, titled
Umpteen, was released internationally in 1997, to more critical praise. Most
recently, Ross has relocated to the Hudson Valley of New York, and is
currently involved with numerous projects in the area.

Ross new CE, Dwight, is the result of this wealth of experience. From the
in-your-face rock anthem Hard Times For The Revolution, to the sweet
sexiness of the R&B tinged (Just Wanna) Hang With My Baby, Ross runs the
full emotional gambit, leaving no stone unturned. Check out the offered
samples for yourself, and order your copy today.



to write a review


More great pop from the best songwriter you haven't heard of yet!
Ross Rice's prior release Umpteen is one of the best pop/melodic CD's of the last ten years (No kidding and no exageration. If you can find it you have to get it). His new CD Dwight continues the same high level of quality in both writing and performance. Ross has been compared to Big Star, Owsley, Chris Stamey, and Bill Lloyd and those comparisons are apt (Why is it that most of the best power pop comes out of the South?) But Ross has his own thing going on, a slight R & B vibe, that infuses his hook laden songs with a lot of soul. His lyrics are clever without being arch and cloying. Ross just has a way of connecting to the listener with his songs in a way that is very easy and natural. Buy this record and once you've been converted, buy another copy for someone you want to turn on to an artist we all can benefit from hearing more from.

More please
Having had the pleasure of once knowing Ross, it is satisfying to hear all of his complexities come through in this album. A musician in the deepest sense of the word. Another disc soon, please...


One of the most talented
Ross Rice is one of the most talented musicians ever. I love "where love and Madness reign".
