artist spotlight::Gringo Star

Gringo Star used to be A Fir-Ju Well, one of Atlanta’s most dependable straight-up rock acts and that tradition continues on in Gringo Star. In fact, Gringo Star is probably the best thing these guys have ever done. The name is a little silly and all, but this is quality power pop, though that term is probably a little confining for what Gringo Star does. Sure, there’s Badfinger, Big Star, the Kinks, the Animals, the Faces…all the greats are represented here with a distinctly Southern (and slightly Western and Spanish at times) flair. Add a touch of psych, and pow! you’ve got Gringo Star. It is always great to hear rock music, gimmick-free and well played with good songwriting and Gringo Star delivers on all fronts.
