“I didn’t want to release any music until it sounded really good,” he said.
After winning a showcase at P. Diddy’s studio, Daddy’s House, Calvin Ross got to meet with an A&R for Def Jam Recordings where he was further reassured of his talents. After this meeting, he started to pursue his music career more seriously and has since soared to new heights.
Today, Calvin Ross mainly creates Urban R&B, taking inspiration from artists like Michael Jackson, Usher, Ginuwine, and R. Kelly.
“The feeling I get when someone genuinely tells me they like my music is the best feeling in the world,” Ross said. “I let the instrumentals talk to me and tell me what to say.”
Growing up in an area of Tennessee where crime and violence is the norm, Calvin Ross has a colorful story to tell–one that continues to make his music stand out from the rest.
So far, he has opened for Avant, Urban Mystic, and Snootie Wild, and he continues to chase his dreams of having his music reach No. 1 on Billboard.
