Mike Ross is a blues, rock & Americana guitarist, songwriter & singer. Originally from the North East of England he currently lives in Brighton and has a 3 or 4 piece band ‘The Mike Ross Band’. Mike has released two studio albums, Spindrift (2014) & Jenny’s Place (2016) and one live record ‘At The 100 Club’ (2016).
Mike writes soulful bluesy rock songs in the tradition of Creedence Clearwater Revival & The Band, plays blues guitar in a style reminiscent of Duane Allman, Peter Green & Steve Cropper and aspires to sing like Steve Marriott, Otis Redding & Paul Rodgers.
Fuzzed up, fierce and full frontal fiery attack coupled with sexy smooth slidin‘ southern soul from this Northern force of nature! Mike and his band cut up sharp and fast like a revved up Allman Brothers Band with a point to prove and an un-damn-missable groove! – Mojo Magazine
Mike and his four-piece take listeners on a uniquely detailed and image packed history tour of the history of the music he loves to play, beginning in the Mississippi Delta at the beginning of the 20th century and finishing up right back in the present moment with his powerful emotive voice and intoxicating virtuosic guitar playing carrying you every inch of the way. To experience Mike playing solo or with the 4 piece band egging him on is to see why one reviewer declared him ‘soaked in soul & burnt in blues’.
