Fife folk singer releases first album – David Ross and Frustrated Blue
On this collection he sings a range of popular and traditional songs with arrangements and music performed by Edwin Steel and Kyra – Alison Steel from XBow.
One of our Directors, Mary-Anne is a great friend of David’s and she asked him about his 2-year journey to make this album.
David said – Its been tough at times travelling by train and foot from Inverkeithing in Fife to recording sessions in Laurencekirk and Kinneff in Aberdeenshire, often in dreadful weather conditions. It’s not easy when you are reliant on public transport with the added challenge of being blind.
Mary-Anne said – David’s a lovely guy with a real talent as a folk singer. He’s not a bad dancer either! I had the pleasure of doing the Gay Gordon’s with David at a posh ‘do’ in Edinburgh. What with me being a Sassenach and David being totally blind, our progress, at speed, around the dance floor was not only memorable for us, but all the other dancers too. If you were there, you’d nae forget it.
XBow Ltd have been a great partner to David who have funded the production. All funds raised from the sale of his album and any profit will go to David. The recording studio XBow is not taking a penny. They say: “This is a venture attempting to realise a performer’s dream and return profit to the Artist in question.”
Have a listen to some of the David Ross samples from his debut album Frustrated Blue and if you like what you hear, perhaps you’ll buy a copy.
