ERROL ROSS

BASS / AWARD WINNING PRODUCER / MUSIC PRODUCTION

"Errol Ross. Dad!

One of my earliest childhood memories is noticing a constant shine that used to always be present at home. The light bouncing off of my fathers gold & silver discs on the wall - that he was awarded for the production & sales of the Ska album: The Selecter. Whilst growing up throughout the years, these discs became a permanent & constant reminder to me that success was possible.

My first real memory of sound was around the age of 2 years old, curled up underneath my dad¬īs chair, listening as he played the bass guitar. The feeling was warm & comforting.¬†From those early days,¬†I knew music was for me!¬†My father has been an¬†incredible mentor & always has an abundance of knowledge & advice to share.¬†

On to the next chapter of our music journey together! Love you xxx" - Carlene
