With the recent release of his infectious pop-rock anthem, "I'm Ready," award-winning Canadian singer-songwriter Kris Anders has solidified his status as one of the most compelling talents in contemporary rock music. Bouncing off the walls with blistering intensity and an unwavering swagger, the single is a clear highlight of his upcoming EP "The Threshing Room Floor," set for release in October 2023.
Emerging from the quaint landscapes of the Okanagan Valley in BC, Canada, Kris Anders has always woven the tapestry of his rural upbringing into his music. "I’m Ready" carries this signature trait with a powerful confidence, allowing listeners a taste of the poetic imagery and description that have become his trademarks.
One can feel the influence of legendary rock icons The Beatles and Jimi Hendrix permeating through every note of Kris Anders' modern-day anthem. Echoing the rambunctious energy of early 2000s pop-rock prodigies, Barenaked Ladies, the vocals are brimming with a raw, edgy and yet inspiring essence that is quintessentially Kris. The song rings with the intensity of powerful guitars, dynamic drums, and roaring bass, resulting in a sonic tableau that feels reminiscent of an epic-yet-fun Beatles track tailored for the 21st century.
The song’s catchy melody is a contagion bound to spread across radio stations, inevitably solidifying its spot as a timeless hit. As the track nears its end, it crescendos into a Van Halen-esque guitar solo, reminiscent of the classic rock greats that Kris grew up with, and concludes with an audacious drum fill ending, ensuring that "I’m Ready" leaves an indelible mark on listeners.
"I'm Ready" is a testament to Kris Anders' prowess as a musician, showcasing his ability to craft intricate and catchy rock songs that resonate with a wide audience. This song serves as a preview to his forthcoming album, which, if "I'm Ready" is any indication, promises to be a riveting addition to the modern rock landscape.
Accumulating over 750,000 streams across Spotify, iTunes, and YouTube combined with his first four releases, and having already won a LIT Talent Music Award for his previous single "Ever Enough," Kris Anders is steadily carving out a niche for himself in the competitive music industry. His commitment to delivering uniquely captivating rock songs, coupled with his authentic rural inspirations, makes him a force to be reckoned with in the music scene.
