We made a blog post previewing each song from 'One Way' with Danny's explanation of its origins and thoughts on songwriting and the recording process. Only at http://dannyrossmusic.blogspot.com/
CMJ had this to say about One Way: "Danny Ross is a classicist to the core...Gorgeous...Immaculately arranged...with enough guitar shredding to make you double-check you're still listening to the same album .... Like Ryan Adams, Ross realizes that there's no point in recreating the past note-for-note when it's more fun to smash pieces of it together in a collage... I hope this album becomes a breakaway hit."

Our record release @ the St. Mark's Church was a featured show in this week's New Yorker. Check it out.

Picture it now. A Jewish boy from the Jewishest part of Long Island meets a girl from the middlest part of Middle America. There, in the snow-covered plains of Madison, South Dakota, he celebrates his first Christmas in December 2007. Singing hymns, eating glazed ham, crashing weddings and sitting on Santa's lap are only the beginning of this one-week adventure in social experimentation.
In April 2006, Ross performed his conceptual rock album "One Way" for his senior thesis at Cornell University. Spanning 17 connecting, autobiographical songs, the work included a seventeen piece band with strings and horns. It's now official that "One Way" will be recorded as Danny's first full-length album. Production will begin in January 2008, and you can catch these songs live at Pianos on Saturday, December 8th.
