Jeremy Rose, A.K.A Ross, started playing guitar by the time he was in the sixth grade. He actually started playing on playing the piano when he was 3, and his grandmother, Rosamond, was so impressed that she paid for lessons for a few years. About ten years later, his father, Matt, had an idea to buy him a guitar and see how he would do with it since he had learned how to play the piano quite quickly. So he started playing around with the guitar by himself with just a starter book. He later on did have guitar lessons for less than a year, but thought that he wasn’t really learning anything. He has always learned to play by ear, and always struggled on reading music.
On his eighth grade year, he had started talking to Mike Reed to start a band, and by freshman year of high school they had formed ‘Destined’. After ‘Destined’ had came and went, he was with Mike for more bands to come as follows: ‘River County’, ‘Red Nickell’, ‘Buffalo Head’, which branched off and formed ‘Southern Reserve’. His influences that carried him along to play lead guitar are infused with rock, blues, and country music meshed with a hint of metal which are: Jimi Hendrix, B.B. King, Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin, Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, John Fogerty, and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Along with playing lead guitar, he is also a songwriter/poet.
