Hi, I'm ross, and I do a lot of different things.
As a MUSICAL THEATRE WRITER, I’ve created the musical GUN & POWDER with playwright Angelica Chéri which will be presented at Paper Mill Playhouse in April 2024 after a sold out run at DC’s Signature Theatre, which The Washington Post heralded as "fresh and exciting" and "an exhilarating musical in a marvelously sung world premiere." Other highlights along the way have included the NAMT Festival, Lincoln Center’s Broadway’s Future Songbook series, and the prestigious Richard Rodgers Award. I'm currently writing the new original musical ESCAPELAND with playwright Charlie Oh.
As a VOCALIST + POP WRITER, I’ve performed all over NYC including Lincoln Center, City Center, Joe’s Pub, SubCulture, and Radio City Music Hall with Kelly Clarkson. I’m always available for concerts, demo work, background vocals, and writing/recording sessions. I just released Three Red Hearts (the EP), available wherever you stream your music.
As a VOCAL ARRANGER + MUSIC PRODUCER, I work across every medium of entertainment to create content that satisfies the ears and the soul. As a founder of the music collective RANGE I’ve led projects for Nickelodeon, Sesame Street, Billboard, Playbill, the E! Network, and a YouTube channel totaling over 30 million views. Our studio album RANGE volume one is available on iTunes and Spotify. I also enjoy working as an arranger and producer for other artists on their own projects.
As a COMPOSER + ORCHESTRATOR, I create music for plays, web series, podcasts, jingles, cruise lines, ad agencies, corporate brands. Past clients include KFC, NJ Lottery, Celebrity Cruises, RWS Entertainment Group, and Disney. One of my proudest achievements was producing the epic mash-up that “dropkicked” Lin-Manuel Miranda’s heart.
As a VOICE COACH + TEACHER, I've helped my clients book roles on Broadway (DEAR EVAN HANSEN, WICKED, MY FAIR LADY, CHICAGO, WAR PAINT, FUNNY GIRL), National Tours (HEDWIG, RENT), and regionally. I’ve also worked as a vocal director for leading cruise companies and, as the best teachers are also the best students, I received my voice teacher certification through New York Vocal Coaching and recently served on faculty at Syracuse University. I currently offer one-on-one sessions through my vocal studio.
My training includes an MFA in Musical Theatre Writing from NYU, BFA in Musical Theatre from Syracuse University, and the BMI Lehman Engel Musical Theatre Workshop.
So get in touch and let’s see if we can collaborate together on something awesome.
