Justin Ross Band

About Justin Ross Band

Justin Ross’ music is a delectable pop hybrid of rock and pop that calls upon the strengths of both genres. His creative process coalesces into catchy music, full of hooks and with something to say to everybody. Accessible but original, Ross defies convention yet respects the roots of both genres. Me and Free Ross writes music to help people feel free and be at home with themselves, because that’s what music does for him. “When I play music, it is the one thing that lets me be me and free.” He fills his songs with poignant emotional content and plenty of entertainment punch, providing music that is both fun and affecting. “There are so many feelings that pour through me when playing or singing or writing that sometimes it is very overwhelming, but in a good way.” Common Ground Ross finds common ground between him and listeners and helps fans find common ground among themselves. He does this by tapping into real human experience and writing in a very personal way about things that are universal. He often draws from family and other elements of his personal life and environment. “Everything I write is from my heart and based upon some personal experiences, but what I love the most is when I see that my music can touch other people’s hearts. That is worth everything to me.”
The Artist at Work The year 2006 saw Ross land a sixth place spot (out of 10,000 musical artists) in the Emergenza national festival. He was the first artist to independently sell an album through the Army Air Force Exchange Service (the CD “Seventy Five”); it sold on every military base in the country. Ross was the first musician to perform for the Katrina Relief Concert in 2005 (in Shreveport). His “City Lights” song was declared track of the day on garageband.com and also took best beat, best groove and best vocals honors. Ross has opened for Hinder. He has a number of gigs slated for the near future. He is currently working with A&R Select, the leading A&R firm in Hollywood, CA.
