Robert Ross is a two-time winner of the coveted New York Music Award for Best Blues Artist. Ross won his first New York Music Award for Best Blues Artist in 1989 and has been nominated a total of 7 times over the years alongside such stars as Johnny Copeland, Taj Mahal, John Hammond Jr., Roscoe Gordon, Cyndi Lauper and Mose Allison. Robert also won an East Coast Rocker Award for Best Blues Artist in 1991. Ross is a New York Blues Hall of Fame inductee. The Robert Ross Band plays hard driving boogie, hip grinding soul, burning rock ‘n’ roll, and low down and dirty blues. David Hinckley of the NY Daily News once wrote, “Robert Ross is one of the most impressive young bluesmen around.”
Robert Ross is a very distinctive and soulful singer who knows how to sell a song. He is a killer guitarist whose spine-tingling solos tell a story mere words alone cannot express. Albert King added, “He’s so fast, lightning would have to get on roller skates to catch him.” He also plays a very wicked slide guitar and some harmonica. Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page used one word to describe this group, “HOT!!!”
