Ross Christopher is a forward-thinking ambient-orchestral songwriter, violinist, composer, and producer. His minimalist approach to songwriting and composing is both beautiful and haunting - intricately weaving strings and electronic ambiance into vivid cinematic soundscapes.
His music and string performances have been featured on Grammy Award winning songs, films, documentaries, and television (Grey's Anatomy, NPR, Reign, CNN, HUB Network, RAC, Sleeping at Last, Jars of Clay, etc.). When he’s not performing or composing his own music, Ross Christopher produces music and writes/records string arrangements for other bands and artists at his St. Louis studio (SiloTREE Studio).
Ross Christopher is also notorious for his live solo performance, which has landed him on bills, festivals, and touring more than two thousand shows across the globe, with the likes of Sleeping at Last, Jars of Clay, Andrew Belle, Colony House, Guster, The Wallflowers, Robert Randolph, The Black Crowes, Kishi Bashi, Sucre, and many, many more.
In his upcoming 4-track EP, “These Are Not Our Tears,” Ross Christopher proves yet again that he is not bound by a singular sound. His music remains honest, exposed, mature, and "intensely original...creating gritty textures and haunting cinematic soundscapes, delivered with confidence and zeal." His music will resonate with fans of artists like: Hammock, Sleeping At Last, Explosions in the Sky, Bonobo, Eluvium, and Olafur Arnalds. “These Are Not Our Tears” will be released as a digital-only EP on Heart Dance Records.
Look for Ross' fourth release with Heart Dance, “Apophenia,” later this spring.
