Below is a short biography on Canadian born singer/songwriter Robert Ross
"A good country song takes a page out of somebody's life and puts it to music."
~ Conway Twitty
Singer songwriter Robert Ross was born in New Brunswick, Canada. He moved to Australia in 2009 and became an Australian Citizen in 2014.
Robert has become immensely popular in the Cairns region while performing live for many audiences over the years. He has also entertained throughout Australia, and internationally in Nashville, USA and Canada.
Robert's style is influenced by country greats Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Randy Travis and other country artists such as Sawyer Brown, as well as good ole Rock n' Roll. He says “My music comes from life. The good, the bad and the hilarious! This is where we all have something in common”. A fan once told him, “You know who you are; you sing from the inside out. That is your soul talking with your music”.
A total of 4 singles have been released from Robert’s debut CD titled “It’s Never Too Late” “I WILL RISE” , "JACK DANIELS", "DON'T YOU CRY" AND "BABY DON'T GO" and have risen on the Country Music Charts and the official videos are on YouTube.
His #1 single "Jack Daniels" has made the top 40 radio play for 2021. The CD consists of 10 original songs written and composed by Robert. Robert has been busy writing for the second and third album and will be going to Nashville in 2022 to record and promote the next albums.
My Musical Journey
Small town New Brunswick, Canada was a breeding ground for folk songs written from the heart and from life. From an early age I found my love of music in hearing my Mother (Betty) singing around the house. The songs of the country greats were sung daily and you were sure to hear more heart of country music on the weekend at any local dances or socials. These songs became the basis of my music today.
My music comes from life. The good, the bad and the hilarious! Where we all have something in common. I am pleased to share with you my original songs and will continue to promote the classic tunes from our past.
Thank you for taking this journey with me. Enjoy.
