Greyscale

A 5 track downtempo ep (15m 33s) — released June 8th 2018 on Finest Ego

Owen Ross is an American multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, singer and producer. After studying guitar and synthesis at Berklee College of Music, Ross spent years as a touring guitarist. He was playing and writing many styles of music with an emphasis on Soul, R&B, Gospel and Hip Hop music. In 2011, two new creative avenues opened up for Ross. He moved to Brooklyn where he began writing and playing music with some of the most talented singer songwriters in America. He also was exposed to a wide range of experimental music and began integrating ethereal samples and unorthodox techniques into his music production. Since then Ross has toured the US and Europe as a solo artist and released 3 EPs under the name "Goste." In a review in The Huffington Post, Morena Duwe wrote:

"His sound is a fusion of opposites: delicate and dissonant, ethereal and nebulous, sensual and forlorn, organic and electronic. Goste's tracks reflect the duality within the human spirit. He takes us on a journey through his mind as he artfully connects his lyrics with skillful wordplay."

In a greyscale image, each pixel is a tiny representation of an amount of light. There are millions of pixels in a typical photo but each one plays an important, though easily overlooked role. This parallel also runs through Owen Ross' music. Each composition is comprised of a wide range of varying layers and textures, shading a sonic experience that feels simultaneously foreign and familiar. Gritty, analog drum sounds play off lush harmonies as independent elements come together to create a distinct musical whole.
