-EmJae Ross. Lead Singer and Front Man of EmJae & Co. EmJae Ross is an Americana Rock Singer/Songwriter from Austin, TX. EmJae Ross is a highly gifted, young singer/songwriter born in San Angelo, Texas and raised within the music industry. EmJae spent nearly every day of his childhood in the radio station control rooms and production studios of a family-owned radio business. As a child EmJae developed an extensive talent for drums, piano and guitar. He also developed a lyrical and soulful voice advanced through professional training in classical methodology. EmJae’s musical compass has been oriented by widely diverse influences from all genres and era's. Yet his most powerful inspiration seems to stem from the incredible challenges he’s faced as a young adult. While battling his 20's in the midst of a world riddled with substance abuse, EmJae went through many heavy obstacles that most people will have never have to go through in their entire lives. He was pronounced dead a total of 9 times, as well as disabled at 27 by a severe stroke that left him unable to do anything for himself. During long months of painful recovery EmJae discovered, and believes, that through the grace of God his incredible passion and ability to sing and play guitar remained completely intact. Today, EmJae Ross lives in Austin, Texas where he gigs regularly as a solo/acoustic performer and as a front man with his backing band. In the early summer months of 2018, while co-writing in Nashville, TN, EmJae took another go at fate when he was in a car accident that left him stranded and trapped in a vehicle while it sat on a set of train tracks in the eastern part of the city. The train did what it was intended to do and kept on chugging through the intersection, striking the vehicle head on. EmJae crawled out of the wreckage seemingly unscathed, with the exception of a few areas needing stitching. Healthy now at age 31, having successfully conquered all the demons of his past, EmJae channels his awe-inspiring resiliency into singing and songwriting, sharing a captivating style and a miraculously potent voice that audiences find both emotive and inspirational. “Music quite literally saved my life,” EmJae once told The Chronicle. “It's the only thing we all can connect to. Music is what best defines me. I believe it takes us all to the same place deep in our hearts. In that place, we find a sense of peace, connection, meaning. Intuitively, music helps every living thing self-soothe. It helps us to get through what we're dealing with, through whatever we're listening to. As an artist, and everyone else out there, we all want to be heard. It's innate, but we don't all get to be a voice. That’s what I aim to do with my music, because I am told that it connects with hearts. I was given a gift, and I want to help people with that gift. Hopefully by helping them into that place where they can get connected. " - EmJae Ross
