|Continental Signs With Rusty Knuckles Music, Featuring Rick Barton, Founding Member of Dropkick Murphy's|
"For the better part of the last three years venues from concert halls to basement bars have resonated with the sound of Granite City Rock & Roll. Continental uses their Quincy, MA hometown moniker to describe their unique blend of rock that draws influences from punk, country, folk, and blues.
Founder and songwriter Rick Barton sings the songs of the every man, speaking to our common experiences of love, loss, wandering, and resurrection. The songs are as true and real as any from the English punk bands of the 70’s, capturing the energy of youth, yet delivered with the wisdom of a life lived.
