Ross David and Monique Rust

In the past two years, Ross David has independently released three EPs, The Chicago Sessions, Heart Breaker and Love & War, which showcase his raw, heartfelt singer/songwriter vibe, in the vein of artists like John Mayer and James Morrison. At his core though, Ross is most strongly influenced by pop/R&B artists such as John Legend, Robin Thicke and Bruno Mars. In retrospect, the release of “Fire Burnin’” showed itself as an experiment for Ross, who was always testing the waters with his R&B roots. The success of “Fire Burnin’” therefore is proof that his strongest sound is the one that is most uniquely him: a blend of heartfelt lyrics commonly found among singer/songwriters, with the sweet, fun qualities of pop music and the passionate, soulful qualities found in R&B.

 

Also appearing will be Indianapolis' own soulful siren Monique Rust.
