The first album Two Directions  featured what was to become a trademark grand variety of styles with Folk,Celtic,Cajun,Caribbean and African influences finding their way onto it's 10 tracks. Early Away, Bougainvillaea Bobby and Stereo Lover Boy have become particular favorites with fans around the world. And of Chapeau Girl one reviewer noted  "It's amazing how you can put so much story-telling and character-sketching into four minutes. Quite wonderful."

 

 

  Caribou Eclectic was much influenced by summers spent in the gold rush heritage town of Barkervillle B.C. It became quite a CBC favorite. It also produced two award winners with Loving Time the Runnerup in the Jazz Category of the John Lennon Songwriting Contest of 2003 and Kokanee Canary Canoe The Gold Award and Special Jury Award winner in the Open Category of the 25th Annual Mid Atlantic Song Contest  

 

 

 The Art of You and I has yielded 3 clear favorites with fans worldwide - the folk laced Town for Tired People the tender Candlelight and the feel good folk/ country tune Love. Special mention must also go to the rather shameless Hard not to talk like Elvis and the somewhat criminal Ukulele Crime .   

 

 

 

 

Most Meant to Be recorded in 2015  features yet another varied collection of moods and themes -  from a white knuckle drive across Canada in winter to the thoughts of a besotted mechanic, to two ukulele laced blues tunes to  an aching tribute to a mother's farewell  to the joyful appreciation of a full bodied woman

Said Jodi Krangle of The Muses' Muse

"I think the first song on the album was what started it. Some relief (though fun songs! One even reminded me of some of the turn of the century ditties Queen used to put on an album or two), then the 4th song came along and I was gone into tears again.  Quite the rollercoaster ride. Ross, you're one HELL of a songwriter.

  I LOVED it."
