🔊🔊Nov. 17th Saturday 9pm I’ll be at the Elysian showcasing some new tunes, some old tunes, some CC Roots tunes with Nick Afflitto, China High, Brian Lawlor and Frankie Vigilante and E's other profile Evaldo ChinaHigh Soares We're throwing in some covers we like jam on too, and trust me, no politics.
Meet Blue Ox – A Jersey City duo embracing the sounds of indie-psychedelia, anti-folk, and the unconventional use of instrumentation. With sounds reminiscent of My Morning Jacket and 70’s- era Pink Floyd, their forthcoming, self-titled debut EP echoes all the deep goodness of laying in bed on a Sunday morning after great sex, still a little high from the night before.
With haunting melodies and bold lyrics, singer Kieran Sullivan (Cecilia Celeste, CC Roots) delivers each song with the confidence of a life truly earned. Producer and multi-instrumentalist Donny Dykowsky (Chesterwhite, Big
Hair Girls) is a perfect compliment for Kieran’s approachable grit and melancholy as they both set the tone for a story-telling concept with themes of light and dark, the afterlife, and beyond.
Named after Kieran’s stolen blue Ford pick up truck, the first Blue Ox session took place on April Fools Day, 2017 and spawned their first song “Whatever It Is,” a cinematic piece about faith and existence, which was fully written and recorded in 2 hours. Thereafter, Kieran and Donny would meet regularly to write and record in micro-bursts always yielding a finished song. With the help of drummer Randy Shrager (Jesse Malin, Scissor Sisters) everything seemed to fall into place for an EP that gives listeners a contact high from it’s smoky vocals and lush arrangements, to it’s hero’s journey through the ethers of space and time.
Peace !! Lots of new music happening and some great gigs, solo, and with CC Roots. I am currently working on some new singles and will periodically be dropping them through out the new year. CC Roots is almost done with our new and first full length LP "Mixtape." CC Roots has also started working with Tempo Networks recording artist Arita Worldwide.
Peace ! New single "The Dust" is now available on iTunes and Spotify and all major digital outlets, and of course right here on the music page. It was a blast working with everyone on this tune. I have a bunch of shows coming up this year and hope to see you at some of them. CC Roots has some dope gigs coming up, and we are in the studio working on our new record "Mixtape" so be on the look out for that. I am also gearing up to record a new EP in a similar style as "The Dust" roots, soul, Americana vibes. Lots of music, new enough time. Stay classy ya'll, and grab that new single if you haven't already ! thanks !
Peace ! New single "Turn Around" out on iTunes, Spotify, and all other digital outlets, including this website ! so if you would like to support me and cut out the middle man, download it directly from the source.
Performance hat off, producer hat on. I have realized that I'm sitting on so much unreleased music, so I make this promise here and now, I will be releasing at least one single every month until CC summer tour kicks off.
Excited to report CC Roots has started production on "Mixtape" our sophmore record. Nick Afflitto and I will be producing. I will be leaking songs every now and then. Hoping the album will drop in March.
