Shayne Ross is a 27 year old St. Lucian singer & songwriter. Ross became popular in 2006 with his debut R&B release of “Naked,” a sensual R&B track (produced with Francis Leebo Delima) which showed the artists range as both a rapper and a singer. His notoriety grew later that year with the performance of “Naked” and 3 more original pieces on National television via TEMPEST.
Ross’ follow up in 2007 was “Take you home” (produced with Sherwinn Dupes Brice) an instant hit on St. Lucian radio stations, topping several local charts. The accompanying video for “Take you home” also was an instant success, garnering Ross regional and international attention via TEMPO, BET Jazz, Caribvision, RE-TV, Hype TV andseveral other regional stations. The video (Directed by Davina Lee) would also see Ross as St. Lucia’s most successful artist at the first ever St. Lucia Music Awards walking away with an unmatched 3 awards; Best R&B single for Take you home, Best music video for Take you home and Male artist of the year. In 2008 Ross released “Secrets” and “Bad Girl,” cementing his position as St. Lucia’s hottest R&B singer.
In February of 2009 Ross would change his style with the release of “In love with you” a mellow ballad, which exhibited the artist’s growth as both a singer/songwriter and a musician. “In love with you” (which is still available for download at www.shayneross.net ) marked the start of what would be a stellar year for Shayne Ross; having been selected to produce the jingle which would ultimately be used to promote St. Lucia Jazz throughout the region and internationally. Perhaps the biggest accomplishment for the artist in 2009 was his full set of original music at St. Lucia Jazz 2009, where he received several accolades, with many saying that his performance and his material was as good as the megastar acts with whom he shared the stage with, Beres Hammond, Patti Labelle, Chakka Kahn and Chicago. Ross is currently working on his debut studio album “The Enigma Project” due for release in January 2011.
