"Citizen Bare, Carnival Album Review"

"While the bulk of the band’s material falls in the alt-country rubric, Citizen Bare do dabble outside the genre’s twangy constraints.

Citizen Bare is a five-piece Americana Rock band out of the Northern
Green Mountains in Jericho, Vermont. Their sound is influenced by a wide
variety of genres from folk to hip hop, soul to progressive jam music.
Their original bluesy, folk rock sounds are woven together by guitar
driven riffs, raw and authentic lyrics, and dynamic harmonies. Through
their music they have been building a presence in the Burlington area
since 2007 and gaining momentum towards their musical goals every time
they take the stage. The band is comprised of Andrew James (acoustic
guitar and vocals), John Gratton (lead guitar and vocals), Jesse Cowan
(bass and vocals), Elizabeth Patterson (keyboard and vocals) and Jake
Blodgett (Drums). Each member brings a plethora of musical performance
and creation experience that has proven to be invaluable to Citizen
Bare. Citizen Bare has performed at multiple venues and events in the
greater Burlington area, including The Monkey House, University of
Vermont, Radio Bean, South End Art Hop, Nectars, and various charity
events. Citizen Bare is a blend of music and principle that promotes
free thinking and positive relationship with the world around you.
Their motto highlights an expression of social justice and the human
experience. Live Free, Die Naked
