Andrew Ross was raised in the mountains of Asheville, NC. He received his first acoustic guitar and lessons from Sister Patricia Ann Pepitone at age 13. Andrew attributes most of his musical success to this guitar playing nun.
Andrew holds a BFA in Music Theatre from Catawba College in Salisbury, NC. He has since performed in numerous theatrical performances across the country and has played in many bands ranging from bluegrass to metal.
In 2007, Andrew was asked to join the multi-platinum arena rock band, Trans-Siberian Orchestra. He has been a featured vocalist and instrumentalist with the band ever since.
Andrew currently resides in Queens, NY where he is involved with several music projects. He is the lead singer and co-founding member of the classic/prog metal band, Daredevil Squadron.
