Music interludes provided by Willis Ross

Willis Ross is a multi-instrumentalist living in New York’s Hudson Valley. Their newest EP titled Songs I Sing is a collection of six original songs. It was recorded during the winter of 2023 in the catskill mountains. When they are not busy playing keys with the Ulsterados (local country band), or accompanying various other local artists, they can most likely be found eating grapefruit while taking a bath/ fixing their busted old Jeep in the driveway/ or obsessively adjusting the lighting in the living room while also adjusting the volume knob on their favorite tape player.
