GETTING TO KNOW ROSS ROYCE
by Jacqueline Jax host of A.V.A Live Radio
Interviewing: Ross Joseph
Song name: Waiting For You
Music Genre: Rock
The song is about waiting for the right person to come along to be your life partner , we are all looking for ‘the one’ to come along to fall in love with .. The song also touch’s on theme’s of loneliness and questioning love and life in general.. I came up with the guitar parts pretty quickly and the lyrics came to me easily as well , there are some lovely guitar parts in there which were played by the producer Trevor Reading, the drums were initially recorded at a friends studio and then were enhanced in Trevor’s studio .
The “Millionaires in Heaven” Album…
from which the song ‘Waiting For You’ is on has a lot of harmonies on most of the songs so it’s the most melodic album i have put together , i also included an original demo version of a song called ‘Mrs.Vain’ on which i play all of the instruments (Guitar , Vocals, Drums, Bass, Keyboard, Percussion ) !
I currently live in Wellington , New Zealand…
and there is a small but interesting music scene , not many venues but some interesting bands are around .
The music industry…
has become more DIY so you have a lot more control over what you release although you generally have to hold down a day job or tour a lot to fund the albums/ videos ; you have to be business savvy as well as being a good musician with a good product to sell ; i have also found getting a few sync placements on Movies and T.V has helped my career
I would love to have 5 minutes alone with….
All of the ones i would like to speak with are dead and sadly Chris Cornell passing is tragic ; outside of meeting a musician and someone who is living it would be Bill Gates who has changed the course of computer software globally and his philanthropy work is to be admired .
