Ross Flora Releases "Cannonball"

Nashville-based musician, Ross Flora releases his new single, 'Cannonball.' As a producer, songwriter, and performer, Ross’ passion is to truly connect with the audience and move them from one state of mind to another as a journey. As a seasoned, innovative singer and soulful vocalist, Ross’ sound resonates with the golden age of rock and roll and connects with a Southern flare. 'Cannonball' crafts bold and emotional lyrics in a way that speaks to listeners. Throughout Ross’ life, music has always had an impact on him as he was surrounded by strong influences in both R&B and bluegrass. From listening to the Allman Brothers, Frank Sinatra, Stevie Wonder, and Led Zeppelin growing up, 'Cannonball' emulates Southern Rock through his guitar riffs and is steeped in soul and blues throughout every inch of his style. Ross says, “Music is therapy. It’s the oldest language on earth. It speaks to us in ways we don’t even recognize.” His rural roots trace back to where he came of age in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, where he was connected and surrounded by influential musicians. Throughout Ross’ career, he has performed as a lead guitarist and vocalist with the Johnny T band, opening for Love and Theft, and was also the lead guitarist and vocalist with Smoke n’ Guns, opening for Blackberry Smoke and Dustin Lynch. Not afraid to lose it all, Ross Flora continues to make waves in Nashville as a solo artist, having performed over 3,500 shows all while also writing and producing his own music. “I try to create a journey that leaves the listener in a different place than they were before they heard it,'' says Ross. Ross has played at famous venues around Music City, including The Bluebird Cafe, and continues to play weekly at Cerveza Jacks and Luke’s 32 Bridge downtown. Rock is Southern at heart for the singer-songwriter as he releases his first single 'Cannonball' on Friday, April 8th.
