Biography

Often compared to Ben Harper, Ryan Adams or Amos Lee, this Kentucky born, Texas-raised singer/songwriter proves that there is still room in the music industry for a man with a vision. Deciding to expose the world to the music that only he can bring, Christian wears his heart on his sleeve to bring you songs that will inspire and motivate while bringing a fusion of acoustic soul at the heart of rock n’ roll. This vision is evident with Christian’s 2008, live-studio release entitled, “Live Studio, EP.”

Before venturing out on his own, Christian played for the Dallas-based rock band, Keeping Lions alongside artists such as American Idol's Jason Castro, and front man, Micah Kinard, of the band Oh, Sleeper (Solid State Records). In February of 2007, Christian joined the stage with former Sony/Epic recording artist, Cheyenne Kimball, to play the 2007 Pro Bowl in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Today, after over two years touring a mix solo acoustic and full band performances, Christian is now busy writing and recording for his full length, full-band release entitled, "Awake With Angels". The bands freshman release, “Fire In City Streets EP", is best described as an eclectic, electric and acoustic arson, igniting a creative fire of passionate hope.

Lyrics

Speak

Written By: Christian Ross

“Speak”
Verse 1
Smoke and ashes fill my head
Fuses ignited under tri-colored threads
A billowing fire fills my sights
Like a haunting symphony through the night

When your insides start to speak
Let your words be what you mean
Let your voices fill the air
No other sound on Earth compares

Chorus
Lift hope high above your troubles
Let your mouth shout what your heart groans

Verse 2
You feel the weight that pulls you down
You try to scream but make no sound
Come to know what your life’s worth
Rise above and gain the earth

When your insides start to speak
Let your words be what you mean
Let your voices fill the air
No other sound on Earth compares

Chorus
Lift hope high above your troubles
Let your mouth shout what your heart groans

Bridge
Don’t mis-take these words
It’s only through one we are saved
Oh, the one who came has come and paved the way

Chorus
Lift hope high above your troubles
Let your mouth shout what your heart groans

Red

Written By: Christian Ross

“Red”
Verse 1
Suffer my soul; Listen to my voice
Put into words all the seas of my woes
You may reject my reproaches, justify what you will
It’s your life in the balance; It’s your joy that they’ll first steal
Chorus
So run, run away
When all you see is red
Verse 2
Collapse and you’ll fall straight through His arms
No one will save you till you reach out on your own
You may despise the hand that broke you, even loathe the guilty pair
But seasons change for all us, and your time is drawing near
Chorus 2
So run, run away
When all you see is red
So run, run away
You’re far too young to give, to give in

Fire in City Streets

Written By: Christian Ross

“Fire in City Streets”
Verse 1
I want to set fire to this romance
Watch it burn; incinerate
Then take this fire to the city streets
And watch the world begin to change
Chorus
Listen up all you people
You’re all of what the skies do say
So take your fire and hold it high
Despite what the world may say
Verse 2
Sound the bells out from the courtyards
Listen to the singers sing
Oh, this night they will know us
By the great sounds of the redeemed

Chorus
Listen up all you people
You’re all of what the skies do say
So take your fire and hold it high
Despite what the world may say
