Ross Wilson

Ross Wilson is probably the only person in Australian rock music who can't make a comeback simply because he's never been away.
In a career that spans over 30 years Ross remains one of this country's most respected artists. From Daddy Cool to Mondo Rock, as a solo artist, or as songwriter of A-grade classics such as Eagle Rock and A Touch of Paradise, or producer of the legendary Skyhooks, Jo Jo Zep, The Johnnys, & recently The Screaming Jets, Ross's involvement with success has continued unabated.

Daddy Cool exploded out of the 70s playing rootsy 50s sounds. Mondo Rock surfed the contemporary scene from the mid 70s to the late 80s. As a solo performer and major songwriter he continued to achieve success & make his mark during the 90s & beyond with his songs being recorded by artists as diverse as Jimmy Barnes, John Farnham, DEF-FX, Custard, Jennifer Rush (EU), Troy Cassar-Daley, Leslie Avril, Hey Gringo, You Am I, Uncle Bill, Keke (Spain), Renee Geyer, Christine Anu, Duane Jarvis (US), Elkie Brooks (UK), Ann Kirkpatrick & Lee Kernaghan, Sovereign, Pleasantville, Beccy Cole, Sonic Jihad, and The Wiggles!

On trips to Europe & the USA he collaborated with O/S writers & concluded the decade as a special guest performer on John Farnham's "I Can't Believe I'm 50" tour & live CD.

2001 saw Ross back on the frontline as the result of a decision to return to regular live performing & recording.
