Ross is a guitarist, singer, songwriter, and bassist, living in the Rochester, New York area. His lounge lizard finger-style guitar repertoire is rooted in Tin Pan Alley, Standards, Jazz, and Blues, but also includes his own songs, more modern popular music, and even the occasional Romantic arrangement.
He calls his guitar style “lounge lizard finger-style” because he presents a wide variety of music in a mainly laid back, freewheeling, pianistic style, suitable listening with cocktails, or, maybe, a plate of flies. His own songs are usually light, bemused by the missteps of the broken and befuddled, but his attitude is one of perseverance and hope. He knows that music is a magical, transporting, transforming, healing art, and he takes his responsibility as one of its practitioners seriously.
He’s performed in bands in the Rochester area since the late 90’s, mainly as an acoustic and electric bassists. Projects have included The Tabletop Three, Jerry Falzone’s Liars Moon, The 3-D Electric Blues Band, W. B. Blues, and Moon Salad.
