Ross Livermore is a singer. More accurately, Ross Livermore is a SINGER. More accurately still, Ross Livermore has the kind of transcendent voice that silences rooms.

Not that he would admit any of this. The son of entrepreneurs and raised in blue-collar Peabody, Massachusetts, Livermore is no stranger to hard work, learning from an early age that “if you practice, put the time in and are honest with yourself, the music will find its rightful place.” It’s no surprise, then, that on Livermore’s latest EP, This Is Not Forever, he reveals a collection of songs that are brazenly honest and infused with a confidence born from years on the road. These early shows allowed Livermore to explore his full range of influences- from Incubus to Boyz II Men to Al Green- and it wasn’t long before the pursuit of new songs and stories led him to Nashville, TN.

Featuring an all-star band and recorded live to tape at Nashville’s famed Welcome to 1979, This Is Not Forever effortlessly combines ethereal soul-pop, classic R&B and Tedeschi/Trucks inspired blues. Like many of his heroes- Stevie Wonder chief among them- Livermore accomplishes the near impossible feat of channeling weight-of-the-world sensitivity through his powerful tenor while also maintaining steadfast hope and optimism.

“Put your money down and bet on me” encourages Livermore in the instantly memorable All About You. Embodying a consciousness transmitted from a more golden era, This Is Not Forever showcases a troubadour at the top of his game.
