Ross Griswold is a singer and guitarist based in North Plainfield, New Jersey. When not playing with area band Root Glen, Ross does acoustic shows at venues all over northern Jersey. His resonant voice and precise guitar work allow him to do justice to a wide range of songs, from popular standards to “diamond in the rough” songs that listeners rarely get a chance to hear live.
Ross is a founding member of the band Root Glen, and toured the Northeast US with the band, from Portland, Maine to Washington, DC. Though their focus has shifted back to the local area, Root Glen’s unique groove-rock sound continues to win new fans at each show. Root Glen released four seasonally-themed EP s over the course of a year, all of which are available for free download on their Bandcamp site.
Ross is also in the process of writing and recording the debut CD for his solo project, Graywood. This project will feature more of Griswold’s acoustic roots, without sacrificing the head-nodding grooves found in much of Root Glen‘s music. Be on the lookout for Graywood show listings as the CD gets nearer to completion!
