Over the last half-decade or so as Chicago has become a launching pad for local acts, it has similarly become a destination for many across the country and the world to find a creative community from which to ply their trade. Transplants are as important to the scene as the truly homegrown talent, serving to add depth to the overall city’s culture and movement forward. One new face in town shaking things up has been Apache Gross, who last week debuted the first video and single, “Brooklyn Girl” in a larger rollout aimed at establishing his name outside of his native Arizona.
The video itself is a cinematic piece that does much to stake an aesthetic understanding of artist and song throughout that was premiered with an event at AMFM Gallery in Pilsen. A job brought Grosse to the Windy City but a endearing nature and penchant for perseverance have helped him take important steps forward. With a management team and a fully understood plan for his work ready to go and quickly approaching on the horizon, the future looks sunny for the sinewy soul voice manifested in the desert. You’ll definitely be hearing plenty more from Grosse soon, but for now enjoy the video that is streaming above and the single playing regularly on Mild Sauce Radio. We caught up with Apache to get a deeper understanding of the video, the single and the work that’s beginning to set him apart. Check that our below and be sure to keep an eye out for new releases coming soon.
