Sarah Ross is a 20-year-old singer with amazing vocals, but that’s not all. Her rap bars are just as fiery. Signed to Average Joes Entertainment after the label head saw her on American Idol, she’s been catching the ears (and eyes) of fans all over. Born and raised in New Jersey, she’s tough and her music lets that be known. Ross is also a triple threat when you add that she’s a songwriter as well. Her EP Calm Before The Storm is currently available on iTunes.
1. Where are you answering these questions from and what are you wearing?
I’m sitting on my recliner in Nashville with my favorite Grateful Dead blanket watching Netflix and wearing sweatpants and a T-shirt. And of course my glasses so I can actually see what I’m watching on Netflix. (laughs)
2. What is your official title and favorite thing about what you do?
Sarah Ross is my “official title.” My favorite thing about what I do is traveling. I once read a quote that I think describes me perfectly… “I was born with a compass in my hand and a restless soul.”

17. You’re making your favorite sandwich…what’s on it?
I grew up in an Italian family so I’d say hot capicola on white bread with cheese, mayo, and hot peppers. Yum.

I want to let my soul speak.
