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 Micheux 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.
Drummer, Gavin Baker is the newest addition to the Blue Ribbon lineup. Gavin's innate ability to switch between genres allows Blue Ribbon to meander in and out of different musical stylings and eras. His marching band background garnered Gavin incredible chops and when he's not playing with Blue Ribbon, he's still tapping his fingers on a bar table or steering wheel somewhere.
Blue Ribbon is currently writing and recording an album for each of the 7 deadly sins. This project has been years in the making. A concept project consisting of 7 albums was a huge undertaking from a writer and producer standpoint. All of the albums contain 7 songs and visual art that pertains to the accompanying sin. Blue Ribbon has just released the 6th album, Greed as the project steams ahead. The band has been nominated for several Veer Music awards in Virginia and have also been nominated for a video award with their song Respa Raider from the album, Envy. We hope you follow us on social media or wherever you may roam online.
