Former Journey Bassist Ross Valory Releases Solo Single


Ross Valory, original bassist for Journey, has released a video for “Wild Kingdom”. It's the second single from his debut solo album, All Of The Above, due out on March 1.

Valory says the song is a good example of the album and it’s his first venture into authentic Latin rhythms. Through a press release, he said: “I wrote the piece on a Calliope keyboard patch in the mid-'80s and had the privilege of developing the arrangement with Karl Perazzo, master percussionist with Santana, in 2012″.

When talking about his time with Journey, he says he’s had an amazing career with a remarkable group of musicians who succeeded beyond their wildest dreams.

Valory left Journey in 2020 and he and his bandmembers worked out their issues in a peaceful mediated settlement.
