Ross Hollow’s music makes you want to stand up, dance, sit down, laugh, tap your toes, hum along, snap your fingers, listen to the words, drink beer, attend church, smell the rain, enjoy life more. It has the kind of catchy melodies and verve that keeps you humming the songs long after you’ve heard them for the first time. With roots in New England, the Southwest, Chicago, The Carolinas, Mississippi Delta, and Indiana, Ross Hollow’s music can transport you to all these places and more, with driving bass funkadelic, solid dobro twang, flamenco guitar riffs, wailing harmonica, scintillating ebony and ivory stylings, backwoods banjo rolls, and the backbeat that just won’t stop. We would love to bring our distinctive blend of Americana, folk, blues and modern indie music to a venue near you soon.
The members of the band are:
Stuart Ross, who was born in New Mexico, lived up and down the Appalachian mountains for over 15 years, and now resides in Indianapolis. He writes songs at a crossroads combining southwestern americana, appalachian folk music, blues, and modern indie music.
Vincent Yetsko, a multi-instrumentalist, grew up in northern Indiana playing delta and Chicago blues music. Although currently a college student, his vocal renditions suggest someone much older and experienced.
Jared Horvath, the bass player, brings forth funk and gospel vibes with his amazingly fast fingers
Vernon Marsh, the percussionist, has played swing, honky tonk, Motown, and worship music and is the oldest member of the group.
Dhruv Kulkarni, the piano player and vocalist, brings his influences from India and his love of rock and pop music.
Annalee is married to Stuart and adds beautiful vocal harmonies to her husband’s lyrics..
