‘New Zealand’s best kept musical secret’
‘His music, which has traditional folk roots, has a wonderful way of breaking free from genre’
‘Like a Kiwi Billy Connolly’
—The View, Scotland
Fraser Ross is an eccentric Christchurch-based musician who has travelled the world playing and supporting bands including Phoenix Foundation, Nathan Haines, French for Rabbits, The Nudge 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 live shows, a stint in the UK, and two Albums, 'Mongrels' (2015) and 'Life is Magic, Where is My Rabbit?' (2018) later, he has built a dedicated following in both Scotland, and New Zealand.
Dubbed a 'Kiwi Billy Connolly' for his cheeky banter, he blurs the comical & melancholic with deft aplomb.
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 is currently recording his new album, 'Thunderhead,' between the Massey School of Music, and Surgery Studios, both in Wellington. In between takes he is also undertaking a nationwide tour of New Zealand
