Ross Copperman (born 1983) is an American singer-songwriter. He's perhaps most well-known for his song All She Wrote which was released in the UK in the beginning of 2007.
Ross Copperman was born on October 1st, 1982 and grew up in Roanoke, Virginia. He attended Glenvar High School in Roanoke County.
Ross started playing the piano at age 3, and started writing songs in college at James Madison University. The first song he wrote is titled "Fly Away", and it appears on his studio debut album. He says that it was only after the urging of his teacher (who had listened to this song) that he was convinced to take up music professionally.
While in college, Ross opened a show for Phil Vassar in front of a crowd of 5000. After winning a few competitions, Copperman earned a 40-date US college tour.
He toured the US for around a year and tried selling his independent album Believe, and eventually succeeded in doing so with Phonogenic/RCA records.
The first single he released in the UK, As I Choke, managed to be the most popular iTunes Single Of The Week in the UK, notching up 36,457 downloads in a one-week period.
His second single, and the one that made him known was All She Wrote, entered the UK top 40 in May 2007, and was featured in a couple of instances in TV in the USA.
The third single, Found You, was released a few months later.
His debut album, Welcome to Reality, was released on May 28, 2007.
At a recent performance at Gustavus Adolphus College in Saint Peter, Minnesota, Ross told his audience that he is currently working on a country album to "get into touch with his roots" and also professed his love for Hannah Montana, saying he loves to jam out to "See You Again."
