Artist in Residence

Jamison Ross

One of the hottest young names in music, singer and drummer, Jamison’s music shimmers between jazz, R&B, soul, gospel and blues. Think of a mix of Donny Hathaway and Elvin Jones. One minute you’re enjoying his super-soulful voice, gospel inflections and infectious love of melody; the next you’re digging his grooving, swinging drumming with his band. Jamison is Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition winner. His 2015 debut release, Jamison, introduced the world to his concept of rhythm and melody and also garnered a GRAMMY® nomination for Best Jazz Vocal Album. 

Jamison Ross first distinguished himself as an award-winning jazz drummer, but on his new release, reinforces his reputation as a great singer-songwriter whose music can appeal to broad audiences.
