For as long as he can remember, music has been an integral part of Martin Ross’s life. A native of Washington state and the son of dancers-both his mother and father-he was surrounded by the arts from birth. At the age of 3, he was entered into a local TV station’s talent contest and won 1st place. “Even at that early age, I recall the way music made me feel-happy and free”. At age 7, Martin was enrolled in classical piano, French horn and ballet lessons at the University of Puget Sound and Pacific Lutheran University. “My days started and ended with music-and I loved it!” By age 12, he was performing in front of audiences which began his lifelong musical career-locally, nationally and internationally.
