‘Ross… holds her audience spellbound. The passion with which she delivers both the songs and the stories behind them…leaves me salivating for more.’ (Skye Crawford,Aussietheatre.com)
‘Ross is as fine an actress as she is a vocalist. She doesn’t just sing, she interprets. I have always loved the melody of Joni Mitchell’s Both Sides Now but never quite understood the lyric. But in the hands of Ross’s heartfelt vocals that seem to reflect life experience, the meaning became clear, and it brought tears to my eyes.’ (UK Theatre Network)
‘There are far too many wonderful moments to mention in one review. As well as having superb vocals… she is also an established versatile actress. Ross had the audience in stitches. An irrefutable and inspiring talent. ***** (OneStopArts.com)
