Jeff Alan Ross
In the 1980's, Jeff became a member of the legendary Apple band, Badfinger, singing such classics as "No Matter What" and "Day After Day." In 1999, Bob Birch, bassist with Elton John, introduced Jeff to his band mate at the time, John Jorgenson. John, a world renown guitarist also of The Hellecasters and Desert Rose Band fame, asked Jeff to join his original electric group. Notably he has toured with Badfinger, John Jorgensen, Mick Taylor (Rolling Stones), Denny Laine (Wings, Moody Blues), Terry Sylvester (Hollies, Swinging Blue Jeans)and 60's teen idol Johnny Tillotson. Jeff is currently the musical director for the newly reunited Peter & Gordon as well as being a Pacemaker when Gerry Marsden (Gerry & The Pacemakers) tours in the United States.
His newest CD, "Lock My Feelings In A Jar" is now available.
"I am lucky enough as to have quite a few talented friends, but Jeff Alan Ross still manages to stand out. A creative writer, a remarkable singer and an exceptional musician I continue to find his musical input, his playing and arranging skills and his exceptionally helpful demeanour to be invaluable – perhaps second only in importance to his loyal and rewarding friendship. I am proud to be a fan." -- Peter Asher (Grammy Award Producer: James Taylor, Linda Ronstadt)
“Since meeting Jeff in the late 90s I have had the good fortune to share the stage with him on many occasions around the world as part of my "John Jorgenson and Friends" electric band. His talents shine on keyboard, guitar and stellar vocals, making him a "MVP" or "secret weapon" in any musical situation.” – John Jorgenson (Desert Rose Band, The Hellecasters, Elton John Band)
