Southern folk artist, Jefferson Ross, is a songwriter, singer, guitar slinger and painter weaving stories for the ears and the eyes. Based in The Peach State, Jefferson travels throughout the U.S. and Europe performing his original music and displaying his art at festivals and galleries across the South.
For years, Jefferson lived in Nashville playing for a number of recording artists including, Canada’s Entertainer of the Decade, Terri Clark, and sharing the stage with Country Music greats such as George Strait, Toby Keith, Reba and Vince Gill.
Glide is premiering the song and video for “High Times in the Low Country,” (below) which is packed with Ronnie Milsap-type breezy hummable hooks. Ross owns a distinct deep twang that resonates as a proficient storyteller and songsmith.
“I love the Low Country. It’s mysterious and brooding yet there’s a world of fun to be had. I wanted to write about a guy who goes there to escape the pain of a lost relationship but the sadness follows him. It’s an ironical song in a way,” says Ross
