Blending jazz and popular music styles with his crooning voice, Ross's sound comes from a lifetime of listening and studying music spanning all genres. A native of Phoenix, Arizona, Ross began playing classical piano at the age of five and has not stopped creating and performing music ever since. Lending his talents to various bands and projects over the years, Ross released his own debut self-titled EP in 2011. Recorded in Nashville and produced alongside Gregory McCubbin, the EP showcases Ross's talents as a pianist, singer, songwriter, and producer. He also released another original album a couple years later entitled The Peachtree Dance, via the name Mother Honey, a rock funk duo he started with drummer Houston Mathews (Music City Underground), and with guest guitar shredding on the album by Trevor Terndrup (Moon Taxi).

A highlight of recent years was playing keyboards with Nick Jonas as the '16 Billboard Music Awards. Most recently, Ross produced, co-wrote, arranged, and mixed KellyeAnn Keough's debut album, The Real Thing. "We actually got guys together in the studio and did it live, old school, the way albums used to be made... it was a blast!"
As for Ross's original work, new songs are on the horizon. Inspiration for his next album include the great outdoors, deep spiritual practice, and the unknown future on a warming planet. "It's a lifelong journey to figure out who you are as an artist," Ross says. "I'm trying to write music that not only inspires my audience, but can continue to inspire me as well."
