biography

Kendra Ross is an award-winning vocalist, composer, arranger, recording artist, organizer, and scholar. Passionate about the nexus between arts advocacy and social justice, Kendra Ross is as comfortable on the stage as she is with engaging her community through the arts.


A Youngstown, Ohio native raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Kendra moved to New York City to attend the prestigious New York University, where she earned a Bachelor’s degree in Music Business and Technology. This catalytic journey started her mutual love affair with New York City, which became a fertile ground for her immeasurable gifts to emerge as an artist, music business executive, scholar, and activist.
Born to a family of preachers, musicians, and singers, ministering in word, deed and song is in Kendra’s DNA. She grew up singing in church all the while engaging her maternal grandfather, a revered pastor and civil rights activist in Youngstown, about issues of the day and the role of the church in social justice movements. Kendra’s love for music was further cultivated early on with an exceptional education in musical theater at the heart of Pittsburgh’s incredible artistic legacy and community, including performing with Pittsburgh’s Civic Light Opera while still a teenager.  An accomplished theatre performer, she was later featured in a National Tour of the Broadway smash hit, Smokey Joe’s Café starring Rita Coolidge and Gary “U.S.” Bonds, at Carnegie Hall with Broadway star Linda Eder, and on NBC’s Today Show with the Broadway Gospel Choir.

 

As a young artist, Kendra’s trajectory as a music business professional is unparalleled. After gaining invaluable experience in various administrative and creative roles at some of the most influential companies in the entertainment business, including, Columbia Records, Virgin Records, Motown Records, Sean “Puffy” Combs’ Daddy’s House Recording Studio, and Levine Communications, to name a few, most recently Kendra has held progressively responsible positions with the ubiquitous, Universal Music Group. In addition to being a renowned recording artist, Kendra is widely acknowledged as a seasoned and insightful music business executive and sought after facilitator having developed workshops aimed at providing independent artists with a guide to navigating the music business. Kendra’s story is unique because the immense talent she displays in the recording studio and on stage compliments her skills in the corporate entertainment boardroom.
