Music is refuge. Music is shelter. Music has been a safe place and will always be the sanctuary that music artist and author Ross Victory seeks. By age two, as a giggly yet purposeful toddler, Ross had mastered the Happy Birthday song and was overtaking his family’s pots and pans, clanking them together to form melodies. By age seven, he had begun to record himself with a tape recorder to create original tunes for his grandmother and 1st grade teacher—personalized lullabies that ranged thematically from stargazing to the indisputable greatness of homemade spaghetti.
