About the artist

Gooseberry is a trio from Brooklyn, New York born during the Fall of 2019. Their combination of alternative rock, indie, and blues is a recipe for a unique sound that Gooseberry delivers in each song. The band consists of Asa Daniels (guitar, vocals), Evin Rossington (drums), and Will Hammond (bass).

Since the release of their 2022 debut EP Broken Dance, Gooseberry has been busy. Their eminently engaging music has tickled the ears and stirred the hearts of both music fans and the industry itself. The band has racked up hundreds of thousands of streams, garnering praise from editorial stalwarts Under the Radar, Ones to Watch, and more. Yet, more than anything, they have focused on doing what they do best: playing shows. They’ve played all along the east coast, often with local heartthrobs (My Son The Doctor, Meyru, Cab Ellis) and major touring acts (BabyJake, Grady Spencer & The Work, Tanner Usrey, Maybird) alike. 

On August 25th, 2023, Gooseberry released their sophomore effort: Validate Me. Validate Me as a cohesive piece of art eloquently showcases the unique alternative rock sound that is wholly Gooseberry. This record is foundationally, fundamentally, whole-heartedly Gooseberry. No more, no less. Daniels’s dynamic songwriting soaring over Rossington’s bombastic drums; Hammond’s fluid bass lines the glue holding it all together. Road-keen musicianship wrapped around witty lyricism. More than anything, though, Validate Me proves that Gooseberry knows exactly who they are – gritty rock born at the nexus of DIY and arena-ready pop – and good god they are unapologetic about it.

In support of the new record, Gooseberry hit the road for two months on The Validation Tour, the majority of which featured headline dates. This included a headline show at the legendary Bowery Ballroom in NYC, where they sold nearly 500 tickets! The band now boasts roughly 30K monthly listeners on Spotify and 4K+ followers on Instagram. Since its release, Validate Me has surpassed 500K streams on Spotify. 2024 is shaping up to be Gooseberry’s biggest year yet, with the band hard at work on their next record and touring plans already in motion.
