Album Notes
Danny Ross is piano-pop rocked out. An expressive singer, pianist and multi-instrumentalist with a strong discipline in classic pop songwriting, Danny Ross combines Beatlesque hooks and textured arrangements with personal and inventive lyrics to create a fresh brand of alternative pop.

The debut LP four years in the works, Danny Ross Presents One Way, will be self-released on October 6, 2009. Inspired by the great conceptual albums of rock history from The Who's Tommy to Wilco's Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, Ross shares his personal account of young adulthood in America through a thirteen-track opus of highly textured pop songs. Ranging from the intimacy of the first single, “Forgive Me Love,” a duet with singer Joely Pittman, to orchestral ‘Wall of Sound’ arrangements, Ross touches upon nearly all the cornerstones of pop music to tell his story. Written, arranged and co-produced by the artist, One Way is an ambitious new release and will be performed in its entirety with a fifteen-piece band at the Record Release Show on September 12th, 2009 in New York City’s St. Mark’s Church.

A current Brooklyn resident, Danny Ross, 25, grew up in Long Island, New York inspired by the craft and melody of 60s pop and soul music. Self-taught on piano and guitar in his early teens, Ross went on to study jazz piano at London’s Goldsmiths College before creating the Popular Music Composition and Performance major at Cornell University. There, Ross worked with professors in music and poetry over a year’s time to write and arrange the first incarnation of One Way, performing it live with a seventeen piece band in April 2006 for hundreds of students. The Cornell Daily Sun declared his work “a masterpiece” and "an album for our era," and Ross received Summa Cum Laude honors.

Introducing Danny Ross! [EP] was released in the summer of 2007 to a generation hungry for sophisticated yet accessible pop music. Featured in The New Yorker, The New York Post ‘Page Six,’ Yahoo News, Newsday, Time Out New York, The New York Daily News, and Brooklyn Vegan, Ross has been packing rooms and playing residencies with his eight-piece band and horn section at New York City venues like Pianos, The Living Room and Rockwood Music Hall. In the space of two years, he’s accumulated over 30,000 MySpace hits, released a successful music video for “I Can’t Wait” as featured in CMJ, and was a Williamsburg Live Songwriting Contest Finalist. But from nine to five, Ross lives a very different life as a staffer for US Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), and he credits his day-job for providing him with the organization needed to be a successful DIY artist and manager. He even performed with You-Tube phenomenon “Obama Girl” at the 2008 Democratic National Convention.

With all that he’s accomplished so far in his young career as an inspired songwriter and composer, a dynamic singer and performer, and a rising presence in the New York City music scene, Danny Ross is now introducing himself to the world.

I just found myself doing a really embarrassing dance in my room...
Preview "This Is Just a Test" and you'll hear why. And by "preview 'This Is Just a Test'" I mean "Buy 'One Way'" - the entire album is bursting at the seams with sound and light, texture and movement. The orchestration and instrumentation are outstanding and Danny's voice soars like the best of Ryan Adams, Jeff Buckley, or Thom Yorke. And that's saying something. The swelling arrangement on "Go" reminds me of The Beatles' later experiments and there's the cohesive feel of a real ALBUM, rather than a disjointed collection of songs, with all the songs leading to the appropriately-titled "One Way." From the first seconds of "Sleepy Dream" I was hooked. Congrats, Danny, on a stellar piece of work.
