Gregor Ross

 

Gregor Ross is half gentleman cowboy and half outlaw rocker, a former bullrider and boxer.  The grandson of musicians from Bob Wills,  legendary Texas

 

Playboys Band.  Gregor was destined for a life  in the music spotlight, only one small problem, he was almost completely deaf.  After cochlear

 

reconstruction surgery, at the age of 16, he could truly experience music for the first time.  From rock to country he was all about music, but he mostly

 

connected to the texas sound and artists like George Strait, Merle Haggard and T.G. Shepherd.  He wanted a life onstage, so he began a rock band

 

near his small hometown of Caruthers, California, just a short drive away from the historic Bakersfield Music scene.  Rock was fun but country was where

 

his heart was as a songwriter, and so it began.  After performing many regional shows in bars and at rodeos, and even Buck Owens Crystal Palace,

 

Gregor recorded his debut album titled, Turn Up The Noise, and gained the attention of the NASH NEXT talent competition.  Before he knew it, he was

 

a top 10 finalist out of 750 bands bantionally permorming in Nashville for top industry executives.

 


   Gregor is currently recording his second album and will be touring in 2020 at fairs, festivals and rodeos on the West Coast and in Texas.
