This local St. Louis band is composed of Merv Schrock on vocals, Jon Parsons on keyboards, Sherman S. Sherman on bass, Ron Leible on drums and Ben Parsons on guitar. When you take a listen to the tracks they recently recorded at KDHX, you'll see that the songs are both familiar and surprising at the same time.
"Baby Blue" and "Russian Blue" have a hazy and comforting quality that makes them very easy to listen to. Picture a house party on the perfect summer evening with the right crowd and queue this music to set the perfect backdrop.
"Georgia" has a really chill vibe that's best suited for the end of the night when it's time to find somebody to dance with real slow. Who could resist swaying their hips to the jangly cadence of a tambourine and the soulful sound of Schrock's vocals?
Finally, "1, 2, 3" is a faster, simpler rock and roll lament for the person maybe you didn't get that slow dance with.
Wherever you are at the party, Ransom Note will make it a night you won't soon forget. Be sure to check them out here and the next time they take the stage around town.
