Blue Ribbon
Virginia transplants, Chris Ambrosino (NY) and Jim Gordon (OH) can both point to pivotal events that defined the direction their musical lives would take. For Gordon who comes from a multi-generational musical family, it was when he first heard “Driver Eight” by REM on WMMS in Cleveland Ohio, when all that he knew about country and blues music (Cash, Nelson, Jennings, Owens, Snow, BB King, Wolf, Waters) came into focus. It was Southern, it was smart, it was emotional and all these years later, as he will attest, “runs through the dozens of tunes I’ve written”.
Chris Ambrosino’s life changed when he was gifted a drum kit and a guitar from his grandparents. A working drummer while still a teen in upstate NY and a member of the first MTV generation with a passion for Brit Pop, early metal, ‘70s NYC and later gritty Honky Tonk laced Americana from the Midwest: By 20, Ambrosino was working the NYC club circuit building chops and becoming a multi-instrumentalist, writer, singer and front line performer.
Northern Virginia native, Tricia Lani Chapman adds thoughtful and soulful layers to Blue Ribbon's sound via bass guitar and vocals. Her laid back style and vintage tones are a "tip of the hat" to the great bass players of the past. Tricia has been playing bass for over a decade and has played in worship bands as a guitarist, bassist and a drummer, while also occasionally playing piano and clarinet! She plays and contributes vocals to most studio tracks and all of Blue Ribbon's live shows.
Blue Ribbon is currently writing and recording an album for each of the 7 deadly sins. We hope you follow us on social media or wherever you may roam online.

Kate Grom
Heroine is both rustic and refined, replete with lonesome pedal steel guitar, moony atmospherics, and back porch Americana. The songs simmer with slow burn dynamics, understated grooves, and soaring hooks. Throughout the album, Kate’s vocals exhibit a fragile power—they’re filled with longing, soaring emotionality, and a quaint soulful melancholy that’s both stirring and comforting.
The album’s leadoff single “The Storm” is intimately spare and emotionally immediate.
Kate’s vocals have a spectral sorrowfulness. Here, it’s as if she’s beamed from the aftermath of painful breakup, and recounting the ill-fated tail. “That song is about being hopelessly in love with someone, but coming to your senses after a huge blowout and just being done,” she reveals. There is a weary beauty surrounding the album’s title track. The song’s sweet melancholy coats your soul like medicine for broken heart.
Kate adds some playfulness to the album with the country ballad “Whiskey Eyes.” On this song, big brown beautiful eyes sweep a lover away because they remind her of  whiskey.
