Ross MacIntyre is one of the most sought after bassists in Canada. He has played on hundreds of recordings including 11 that have won or were nominated for JUNO awards.
As a side musician, he has shared the stage with some of North America’s great performers including Matt Dusk, Emilie-Claire Barlow, Guido Basso, Geoffey Keezer Warren Vaché, Filo Machado, Heather Bambrick, Elizabeth Shephard, Kellylee Evans, Laila Biali, Jesse Cook, Shannon Butcher, Barbra Lica, Eliana Cuevas, Jorge Miguel, The Shuffle Demons, and many others.
Ross attended the Berklee College of Music in Boston, and graduated with his Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Toronto. He studied privately with Ray Brown, Dave Young, Pat Collins, Mike Downes, and Joel Quarrington.
He was the music director and composer for The Garden Brother Circus, and has played in the pit orchestra for numerous musical theatre productions with CanStage, Young People’s Theatre, and Mirvish Prodictions.
In 2011 Ross released a duet alum with the great Pianist Mark Kieswetter, and it has been met with critical acclaim. The Whole Note magazine wrote, “Kieswetter and MacIntyre have captured the essence of what the best piano/bass duos are all about: elegance, economy, precision, fluidity, style, intimate, grace, and that magical, intangible chemistry - the simpatico.”
