"Featured in MicControl, 2/19/09"

"As you may have noticed from my posts today, I have been in a real ‘rock’ mood today; it probably has something to do with listening to a lot of Van Halen all last night. I decided to put these guys up becuase I was really getting into their hard but consistant sound. The singer has a great voice (listen to the chorus of ‘I Am The Bitterson’ where his voice truly soars)."



Featured songs include "Freality", "Follow His Heart", "When Love Finds You", "Another 24", and "I Am The Bitterson" and all can be heard here and on Myspace and the website. A full length CD is due for release in 2009.

BITTERSON is two things...a band and an attitude. Sometimes classic, sometimes modern, Bitterson's sound is a reflection of rock's raw emotion being chiseled out of yester-year's boy awoken by change to a modern-day man. As a long time songwriter and guitarist, founding member Phillip Amerson came up with the idea for the band while living in Paris, France. Translating his last name's first four letters... "Amer" meaning "bitter" in French... and replacing that in his last name, "BITTERSON" ...the perfect band name... was born. The name captures the tone and emotion of each song with their telling of love lost, rejection, difficult times, overcoming odds and maturing. Bitterson hails from Chicago, IL and is made up of Phillip Amerson (guitars/vocals), Matthew Severing (drums), AT Jones (keys/bass/backing vocals).
