MOST RECENT VIDEOS!!
Robert Ross (vocals & guitar, and George Morales (drums) performing Robert's original tune "Drowning Man" as a duo at Manhattan Neighborhood Network (MNN) on the windy and bitter cold night of January 7, 2014. Mike Tapp (aka Branekandi) did a masterful job with all aspects of the production. Adam Levine has been asking to hear this, so here it is.
"We're The Ninety-Nine" is based on the wonderful union song "Which Side Are You On?" Music & original lyrics by Florence Reece in 1931. I wrote a new lyric in 2011 about the Occupy Wall Street movement, and the "too big to fail" banks. I did the vocals & guitar, engineering, and video. This is my first attempt at a video using a montage of photos, graphics, and cartoons that I downloaded from the internet.
Robert Ross is the featured artist of a short film entitled, Raw Blues: the Series Featuring Robert Ross. This online blues series is produced and hosted by Liam J. Holland. The video includes an interview, plus a live performance of 5 original songs including Born With These Blues, Down In New Orleans, Drowning Man, Last Night The Bottle Let Me Down, and I Gotta Go. Send an email and let us know what you think of it. We'll post it online and in an email. Check it out here: http://www.earthprimeproductions.com/downloads/Raw_Blues_The_Series-05-Robert_Ross.mp4
