Ross Livermore On His Upcoming Release: "This Is Not Forever"
As creatives, many of us are bound to wait tables at some point or another. Those of us who do find little tricks to get through the day. We write lyrics in our server notepads, or sneak off to the restroom to record a new hook into our phone believing that someday it will be no more than a chapter of our narrative. For rock/soul artist Ross Livermore, his work mantra while waiting tables, "This Is Not Forever," is now the title of his upcoming album release. After having a taste of Nashville, he moved back to the Northeast to save money and play gigs for a summer, knowing he would be back soon:
"I used to work at this restaurant back home. And it was the summer after I had moved here (to Nashville)... when I was working, I wrote a little note to myself that said This is Not Forever as a piece of inspiration on my waiter notebook."
On December 15th, Ross will be releasing "This Is Not Forever." It carries themes of optimism, community, and family in a soulful way that will lift you up and get you thinking simultaneously. This prolific songwriter has written something for everyone from love songs to reactions to current world events. When asked why this album is important to him, Ross' response was one that any artist can aspire to:
"I've been doing this for a long enough time now that I'm starting to find out who I am as an artist. It takes releasing music, playing shows- doing the whole thing. I think now that I've done it for a long time, I feel comfortable in my own skin as an artist."
Ross Livermore will be playing gigs about every three weeks starting at the end of October until his official release party on December 7th at The Country (one of his favorite Nashville venues). Backed by a whole community of musicians here in Nashville, Ross will be sure to put on a passionate performance that you won't want to miss- Nashville Offbeat is excited to check it out! Make sure to give him a follow on Facebook and Instagram, and check out the music videos leading up to the album to get a taste of his new project.
