‘New Zealand’s best kept musical secret’

—Capital Times


​​‘His music, which has traditional folk roots, has a wonderful way of breaking free from genre’

—The Wireless


‘Like a Kiwi Billy Connolly’

—The View, Scotland

Fraser Ross is a Christchurch-based folk musician who has travelled the world playing and supporting bands including Phoenix Foundation,

Nathan Haines, and Nadia Reid.


His EPs, 'And Birds Do Sing' (2009) and 'To Places' (2012) established him as a serious talent and a brilliant, loud-shirted presence within the New Zealand underground. Numerous shows, time in Scotland, and two Albums, 'Mongrels' (2015) and 'Life is Magic, Where is My Rabbit?' (2018) later, he has built a dedicated following in both the UK, and New Zealand.

Dubbed a 'Kiwi Billy Connolly' for his tongue-in-cheek stage presence, he'll mix a light-hearted quip with a lonesome tune no problem. 

Ross has played at numerous arts festivals, including the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, LitCrawl Wellington, the Hamilton Gardens Arts Festival, Wellington City Summer Sounds, and the Christchurch Nostalgia Festival.

He released his latest album, 'Thunderhead,' on march 22, 2024.
