Ross’s live band “the Tribe” was formed in September 2018. Ross and his bandmates Georgi James (bass) and Victor Montanaro (drums) have been playing together since 2013 as the inaugural band members of the Lakehouse Music Academy pro band. During this time they developed some serious playing chops, performing cover songs around venues in Asbury Park, such as the Stone Pony, Wonder Bar and Asbury Lanes. In 2019 the Tribe acquired 2 new members; Ethan Christensen (guitar) and Charlie Krause (keys), making the band a powerful 5 piece.
Ross Owen and the Tribe have been playing at various venues in Ocean and Monmouth county and are available for bookings. Ross’s songs perform really great live and the Tribe has an abundance of raw energy.
Ross's second album Seed was released on May 1, 2019 on all online music services. Songs like “Cheese Fry”, “Pollen” and “Valentine’s Day” fuse together an edgy poppiness to his progressive sound.
