Mike’s background is well suited for the project according to his bio on the Edmonton Sun,
Before being hired by as the music critic for the Edmonton Sun in 1993, Mike Ross was a professional musician who toured the continent during most of the ’80s with various ridiculously-named bands that went nowhere. The three-time Dunlop Award winner has covered the local and international entertainment scene for the Edmonton Sun during three different decades, and continues to write major concert reviews for the Sun. His articles have also appeared in magazines like Avenue, Alberta Venture and Chart magazine. He received his (musical) education at Grant MacEwan University and learned journalism from the School of Hard Knocks.
