Don Ross

Canadian guitarist Don Ross has earned an impressive reputation for himself in the music world, both for his guitar composition and his techniques. He has even been listed by some as one of the world's top guitarists. Ross was born in 1960. He inherited his love of music from his mother and father. When Ross was eight years old, he began his self-taught study of music on the acoustic guitar. A couple of years later he was skilled enough to try different fingerstyle techniques. In 1983, Ross graduated from York University. Three years later, he began to seriously work toward a professional career in music. In late 1988, Ross won the United States National Fingerstyle Guitar Championship. A short time later, he signed a contract with the Duke Street Records label. Over the next few years, Ross recorded three albums: Bearing Straight, Three Hands, and a self-titled release. This Dragon Won't Sleep was the next full-length recording Ross completed. This time he was working under the Sony Music label. The album hit the market in 1995. A year later he fished a holiday album, Wintertide: Guitar Music for Christmas. That same year, Ross won the National Fingerstyle Guitar Championship again. The first win was a major accomplishment, but what made this second win even more extraordinary was that Ross was the first to ever win the prestigious championship twice. In 1997, Ross pleased his fans once more with another album, Loaded. Leather. Moonroof. It was followed in 1999 by Passion Session. Huron Street appeared on Narada two years later. ~ Charlotte Dillon
