About

A native of Phoenix, Arizona, Ross Lewicki started studying piano at the age of seven and was composing music by the age of ten when his father, a professional bassist, introduced him to music sequencing software that allowed him to create and record music on his personal computer. By the time Ross was thirteen, he had already composed two CD’s of all original material scored for piano, bass, drums, guitar, and horn section. Ross went on to receive his Bachelor's Degree in Jazz Piano Performance from Arizona State University in 2015. Ross’s work both as a pianist and composer has attracted significant attention beyond the Phoenix area. Pianist and composer Adam Benjamin chose Ross’s composition “Forty-Two” as the External Judge’s Choice at the 2013 Arizona State University Student Jazz Composition Competition. The following year, Ross was nominated for the American Pianists Association 2014 Cole Porter Fellowship. Soon to follow, Ross was chosen by local educators to perform a two-hour showcase of all original music for the “Catch a Rising Star Series” at the Nash in Phoenix AZ. Most recently, Frank Carlberg, (Pianist, Composer and Professor of Jazz Performance and Composition at New England Conservatory), chose Ross’s composition, “The Misodoctackliedist,” as the External Judge’s Choice at the 2014 Arizona State University Student Jazz Composition Competition.
