EP Review: Ross Harding – Chapter II (Self Released)
Having made a global name for himself in the blues-rock realm, South African rock singer-songwriter Ross Harding has now released his new EP, Chapter II. The follow-up to the debut record, Rest & Resurrection.
While he may have made his name in the blues-rock genre, Ross Harding is making quick in-roads to being just as famous for a more straight-forward groove-infused style of rock. Though his past is certainly a major influence, regardless. Notable with the guitar twang of Black Sun Blues and the quality drawl of Blood & Bones. Both tracks feature a groovier, moodier and passionate tone. The smooth vocals of Harding, powerful guitar soloing, and strong choruses make them mightily infectious.
That groove, alongside heartfelt rock vibes, gives Love & Time a pensive quality. Thanks, mainly, to the vocals of Harding but also thanks to the melodic guitar tone. Brooding, shady and dramatic, it’s a track that is filled with honesty and passion. That’s what makes it so memorable.
