A Brief History   

                                            "What variety!

I've not been this entertained in too frickin  long!!"

Ross Douglas is an award winning songwriter and wonderfully entertaining performer..

Initially drawn to theatre, he saw much of the world as Pianist / Narrator in the second-ever cast of the seminal  BILLY  BISHOP  GOES  TO  WAR, played  "Brad Majors" in the first ever Canadian stage production of the ROCKY HORROR SHOW  and was in the original Vancouver production of  ANGRY HOUSEWIVES,  for which he also received  a Jessie Award for "Outstanding Musical Direction'

All the while and onwards he was writing - spending 8 years as musician, writer and musical director of the Shakespearean inspired Willie and the Wassailers and 9 years as writer, musical director and performer at Theatre Royal in Barkerville, BC.

 This spawned a songwriting output of wonderfully eclectic appeal - 4 albums of original song full of wit,observation and storytelling - which  as a  solo  performer, he delivers with great gusto. 

His songs have recieved ever increasing recognition.  "Lovin Time"  was Runner up in the Jazz category of the  John Lennon Song Contest  -  his uke inspired ditty "Kokanee Canary Canoe"  was Special Jury Award  winner in the Mid Atlantic Song Contest  . His folk laced "Town for Tired People" and "Bougainvillaea Bobby" prompted  Folk Alley to name him their  "Folk Artist of the Month" And in 2018 his song "Candlelight" placed first in the Open Category of the International Acoustic Music Awards Song Contest. 

  At last count, he has fans in 115 countries and territories around the world
