Sought-After Composer And Musician Ross Little Has Released His Debut Body Of Work ‘Corrimony’
Sought-after composer and musician Ross Little has released his debut body of work, ‘Corrimony’, an EP inspired by the landscape near his home on the banks of Loch Ness.
In six instrumental tracks, Corrimony marries elements of Jazz with a strong foothold in the Folk tradition of the Highlands of Scotland and is a synaesthetic response to various locations in the landscape of Corrimony, a small village in Inverness-shire where Ross spent years of his childhood.
Each track on the EP draws inspiration from a unique location in Corrimony and captures the essence of its story musically.
Composed initially on piano, an instrument upon which Ross has become sought-after as a session musician in the Scottish music scene, the EP features appearances from Finlay Smith (drums, percussion), Rob McLaughlin (guitar), Neil Martin (bass), Bethan Sexton (vocals), James Lindsay (bass), Chris Rasdale (fiddle). It was recorded by Cammy Scott and mixed and mastered by Ally Kelly.
Ross said: “Corrimony is the culmination of my original creative works to date. The project developed from my love of the outdoors, specifically the rural landscape of the central highlands. I have tried to capture the essence of these places as I see them and tell their story through music. Through collaboration and conversations I have been inspired to compose music for a place that is a very special to me”
