Music Under The Stars: Ross Newell

Join us for an evening under the stars with Ross Newell!

Ross Newell, now touring as a solo artist is best known as lead singer and songwriter in The Mulligan Brother from Mobile AL, a band that has toured throughout the U.S. and Europe. His song writing weaves heartfelt tales of love and loss into complex yet comforting storytelling, the combination of which will leave you nostalgic for something (or someone) that you can’t quite put your finger on. With a remarkable universality, you could as easily imagine the tales spilling from the mouth of a storied, laugh-lined old man as his teenage grandson grieves his first heartbreak. He sings and plays about where they’ve been in a way that makes us all realize we’ve been there, too. Songs written and performed by Newell have over10 million combined streams on Spotify.

“Newell’s voice tends to be very contemporary. He often overlays the rippling flow of the music with a fast-paced, verbose patter, and he packs songs with sharp imagery. Newell has a gift for phrases that pop out and grab you, even when you've set the album playing in the background. ” — Lawrence Specker, AL.com

“If you're a fan of Trampled by Turtles, then you're going to feel right at home listening to Ross Newell on lead vocals.” — Regional Musician Magazine

“Singer/songwriter Ross Newell bring a warmth and finely crafted talent to the experience and the superb vocal tone of Newell is without doubt one of the finest live voices I have heard in some time. Newell is a fine writer and his eye for a couplet is as finely honed as ever. ” — Paul McGee, Lonesome Highway Magazine

His latest record, “Frisson”, shines an entirely new light on the depths of his creativity and his reach.
