Here is a brief breakdown of the bands that I'm currently in. If any of them interest you or tickle your fancy, please check out our music on Spotify, Apple, and Google Music, or basically where all music can be found!
Fort Worth, Texas Native, Justin Ross is a delectable hybrid of Rock, Soul, Roots, Blues, Swamp Rock, Texas Music and much more.
Ross intertwines the genres of music into a show that makes for the masses.
Justin Ross has a unique way of delivering a message to his fans; It is as though they can relate to him with every song he plays. Ross has been in this business long enough to know that you have to work hard and make every day count to get respect from not only the fans but as well as the clubs and venues.
Ross has now taken all that he has done and started putting his creative mind into a band that is unlike any other. Giving you all the rock, soul, and country that he has done before with the arrangement of Stand up Bass, Fiddle, Guitar and much more to come giving you DEADWOOD REVIVAL.
Justin Ross & Deadwood Revival was est. Oct of 2022. Since this has taken place, a whole new door has opened for Ross's music. Bob Lee on Bass, Cory Vyse on Fiddle/Mando/Banjo, and Justin now not only on guitar and vocals, but also Pushing his talents to the extreme. Deadwood is a "Must See" show. DWR is now in the studio and releasing singles in 2023.
Further North is what happens when your Spotify gets stuck on the 90's and 2000's emo with the likes of Jimmy Eat World and Andrew McMahon. Blending inspiring melodies and harmonies with high-energy performance, they are sure to engage any listener.
They released the "Under the Clouds" EP in 2018 to high applause with a forthcoming EP to be released in 2020. Further North has been said to have "killer hooks," "infectious sound," and "relentless energy."

Consisting of bandmates from The Effinays, King Booty Disco, Loyal Sally and others I've been blessed to meet on this musical journey I call life.
Associated Acts Include:
KING BOOTY DISCO
King Booty is a classic throwback to a genre that influenced and shaped dance music across the globe. Disco, the type of music that's impossible not to move you feat with rhythm so lucky it hurts to not bust a move. Can you dig that? Come find out and catch King Booty Disco at our next show!
DRAGONFLY: THE SOUND AND VISION OF LENNY KRAVITZ
A 4-Piece Lenny Kravitz tribute project started and fronted by Hurshel Burton as he stars as Lenny Kravitz backed by Kurt Lauerman as a slash of all trades playing guitar, keys, background vocals, and trumpet. With myself on drums the other half of raw rhythm section being backed by Jayson Atz on the bass. Come join us and experience the sounds and visions of the one and only Lenny Kravitz.
Loyal Sally is the result of lifelong BFF's Michael 'Bubba' Lindblom and Micael Lewis's passion for writing catchy tunes that can take you to another place and time. Loyal Sally got their beautifully unique blend of sing along folk-rock with the addition of stand up bassist Lucas Weiss, and Dallas Mavericks Drumline percussionist Aaron 'AC' Capers. With an out-of-this-world ability to creat melodic harmonies on top of the most inspiring catchy brand of folk rock, Loyal Sally is set out to barrel through every speaker and every stage, so pull up a chair and stay LOYAL!!
