Sounds | The Commoners, Fill My Cup


Dertien in een dozijn roots rock, maar daarom helemaal niet slecht! Origineel is het ook allemaal niet, maar dat waren The Black Crowes ook niet, right? Bottom line: de vier Canadezen maken uiterst genietbare, soulvolle (southern) rocksongs en zijn één van die bands die je vooral live aan het werk moet kunnen zien. Blijkt dat dit volgens hun website ook wel eens bij ons zou kunnen, al is 19 november ergens in Oostende nog te bevestigen. Wij houden jullie alvast op de hoogte.

Possessing a sound tapped from the oaken belly of a whiskey barrel, The Commoners are a 4 piece Roots/Rock outfit from Toronto, Canada. Offering their own blend of a tried and true musical mixture, the group pepper their sound with high-energy riffs, soulful vocals, and rich harmonies that combine to take the listener on a journey through a Southern-style rock experience.

The group was cobbled together over the course of a decade, restructuring and adapting through numerous obstacles to form the unit as it exists today: Chris Medhurst (vocals/guitar), Ben Spiller (bass), Ross Citrullo (lead guitar), and Adam Cannon (drums). Often joined by their friend, organist Miles Evan Branagh, The Commoners unite under a shared dream: to write, perform, and share music that is an authentic nod to the greats who paved the way before them.

“The Black Crowes are a big influence for us. Derek Trucks, Marcus King, and the Allman Brothers, of course. These are the bands that we aspire to wear on our sleeves as we create our own music.”
