Yellow Brick Road
Ross Davis released his second full-length album Yellow Brick Road in October 2012 through independent label Bean Blossom Productions, comprising seven self-penned songs, including the timeless electricity of guitar-driven “1950’s Rock ‘n Roll,” the folk-rock balladry of “Bean Blossom” (about childhood memories at a rustic cabin in southern Indiana), and the inspirational title track. Contributors to the project include Grammy Award-winning session guitarist Brent Mason, and Juno Award-nominated Canadian songwriter Annabelle Chvostek who played fiddle on the “Wonderland” track.
The album has received positive reviews, such as the following:
“Indeed, the truest message of “Yellow Brick Road” shines via its instrumental showcase, admittedly making the lyrics almost secondary to the hummable melodies and fine musicianship here.” –Chuck Lance, entertainment journalist and previously Senior Editor at Billboard magazine.
“The Indianapolis based songwriter is not afraid to stick to an adult-oriented vintage sound that sets him apart from the followers that just jump on every new passing trend to try and get a foothold in the music business.” –Indie Band Guru (read full review).
“Ross Davis has been busy building his Yellow Brick Road and this 7 song collection does not disappoint.” –Joshua Smotherman, Middle Tennessee Music (read full review).
