Connor Ross is an artist, producer and songwriter from the Far South Coast of NSW Australia, now based in Melbourne. Connor draws heavily from folk and jazz influences to create raw, dark and personal music, focusing on the use of light and shade.
In 2014 Connor was a participant in the Telstra Road To Discovery program. Off the back of this success he carried on to play support slots for the likes of Jack Carty, Steve Smyth and Daniel Champagne, and became a recognised performer at folk festivals in his home region.
In 2015 Connor relocated to Melbourne and began work on a debut self-produced EP, heavily influenced by recollection of the natural beauty of the NSW Far South Coast. The 5-track EP ‘Come To Think’ was released independently in February 2016 and is available through all major online distributors and physically via www.connor-ross.com.
After the release of ‘Come To Think’ Connor took a needed step back to recoup, write, and refresh, and will re-join 2019 with new shows, new music, and new plans.
“… so fresh, his song writing is really quirky in a way that I don’t think I’ve heard before.”
