My EP, “Live at the Mira Room,” is available for streaming on all major platforms. This is a live set of 6 my original jazz/jazz-adjacent compositions recorded shortly before the pandemic. You’ll hear from the likes of myself on piano and rhodes, Simba Distis on upright and electric bass, and Dr Mimmi Mured on drums. These cats are like extensions of me considering how well they play and understand my music. I never have to tell them what to do because they already know what I want. I’m truly honored to have them on the record.

My buddy Chris Rodriguez did the cover art. He was a joy to work with and absolutely nailed it- it really puts you in the space! I highly recommend Chris for all your art needs. He is the man.

One of my closest friends, Tom Kendall Hughes, mixed and mastered the record. I cannot say enough about this man. He brought the music to life and brought out so much depth and color I didn’t even know existed! Not to mention that he’s been my rock during this whole pandemic. One of the most talented and genuine people I have the pleasure of knowing.

I sincerely hope you enjoy!

For anyone in or near Lakewood, CA, reach out to me directly and we'll coordinate me getting the CD to you. This listing is for those farther away who will need the CD shipped. No guarantee on when you will receive the CD. I will be shipping myself, so it's largely dependent on when I can get to the post office. I read that once shipped, it can take between 2-10 days to come to you.

For those not in the US, sorry about the international shipping cost. Is what it is. Domestic is 4-5 days in transit, international is about 2 weeks

Road to the TOP EP

Road to the TOP EP

Sam Ross

In cart Not available Out of stock

Back in 2015 I originally wanted to have this be my debut album. But as time has went on, I've gradually been finding my own voice as a composer. I want to record sometime again in the future and make sure the work represents who I've become as a writer. However, there is a whole lotta fantastic material here from some super talented people, so I didn't want that go to waste. I am sure this is not technically an EP, but I am releasing it as such.

This album more reflects who I was around the end of high school. It features many of the musicians who helped to form me as a composer and musician.

Recorded on August 24th, 2015 at The Woodshed in Hawaiian Gardens, CA.

Session engineered by Gabe De La Parra.

Mixed and mastered by Mike Makowski (1-5), Tom Hughes (6)

Album art by Abby Clemens.

"Born Into This" lyrics by Jordan Brown, AKA Apollo Stripes.

All music composed and arranged by Sam Ross

Thanks to everyone who made this come to life.
