“The Commoners have delivered a real beauty dripping in quality, rich in its roots rock heritage… They have absolutely nailed it.”

– Rock N Load

Classic Rock Magazine describes the new album as “Rootsy, soulful and bluesy, these are timeless songs steeped in classic rock tradition.”  

The Commoners are: Chris Medhurst (lead vocals, guitar), Ross Hays Citrullo (guitar), 
Ben Spiller (bass guitar), Adam Cannon (drums), and Miles Evans-Branagh (keyboards). 

Find A Better Way was produced and mixed by the band’s guitarist Ross Hayes Citrullo, while the title track single was mixed by award-winning record Australian record producer Kevin Shirley (Joe Bonamassa, Black Crowes, Iron Maiden, Led Zeppelin).

Possessing a sound tapped from the oaken belly of a whiskey barrel, The Commoners hail from Toronto, Canada.

Their sophomore album “Find A Better Way,” grabs your full attention from the first note.

The opening lines, “If I scream at the top of my lungs and stamp my feet ’till the floor comes undone,” immediately triggers the wild ride that follows. Reminiscent of highly respected bands like Free, Blackberry Smoke, Black Crowes and Rival Sons, The Commoners have crafted an authentic collection of unforgettable songs that strike the perfect balance between old and new.
