A little more about Ross Neilsen & The Sufferin Bastards:

Blues never worked so hard or looked and sounded so good. Until it met Ross Neilsen To say that he is a dedicated, chronic over achiever would be an understatement. Never mind the recent Nomination for Best New artist for The Maple Blues awards. Never mind the two Rising Star Nods from CBC, or the back to back Blues Album of the Year Nominations by the East Coast Music Association. Never mind the fact that Ross Neilsen spent the last two years living out of his van on friends couches and fans floors so he could dedicate himself to his craft. Never mind that he released two albums in six months. Never mind that he is traveling with his band to Mississippi to record a new album in January 2010. Never mind that it’s being produce at Zebra Ranch by two time Grammy Nominated Producer Cody Dickinson of North Mississippi All-stars and Hill Country Revue fame. Ross Neilsen is out there doing it and he is not going to stop. 200 plus, four hour shows. 80,000 plus kilometers. three national tours. sharing stages with people like Buddy Guy, Black Crowes, Original P, Grady and Joel Plasket. All this in just the past year. This, is the real, old school kind of Artist. Write. Tour. Record. Tour. Repeat.
