A Hancock County Maine native, Chris Ross has been writing and performing his songs for the better part of a decade. He mixes smokey folk with a rambling and witty poetry, which earned him the "Songwriter of the Year" award at the 2014 New England Music Awards.  His music is simple yet rich, catchy yet worn at the edges. His new band, Chris Ross and the North, has taken the songs to another level.  Their brand new album, "young Once" has been met with critical acclaim, featuring the songs "Annabelle", "The Long Way" and "When The Dark Allows"
