Two time East Coast Music Association nominee and two time CBC Rising Star Award winner, Ross Neilsen, eats, breathes and sleeps the blues. Whether electrifying audiences with his power trio or telling tall tales in his intimate solo shows, Ross has been “out there” delivering the goods.

After bursting onto the scene in late 2005, Ross Neilsen has worked hard at maintaining his profile, making sure he isn’t lost in the “blues shuffle”. This self-managed artist books and performs over 150 shows annually at various venues around Eastern Canada including: Clubs, Theatres (Playhouse in Fredericton, Imperial Theatre in Saint John), and Festivals such as The Harvest Jazz & Blues Festival in Fredericton and The Dutch Mason Blues Festival as well as The esteemed Mariposa Folk Festival in Orillia Ontario.

Ross’s debut album, Where I’m From, received many accolades. Among them, an East Coast Music Award Nomination for Best Blues Recording as well as being featured in many publications and receiving much support from Canadian Radio confirming that he would be an artist to watch.

With the release of his second CD, EARLY GRAVE, Ross and his band, The Sufferin’ Bastards have taken no prisoners. The sophomore release features a songwriter who has matured beyond his years delivering an emotional rollercoaster ride of primal Blues Rock. Once again Neilsen has employed some of the country’s top players. Sax genius, Chris Mitchell, blows the listener away on “Don’t Need Love” and “How I Could Change”.
