Having established his identity with the revered prog-metal band Haken, as well as his involvement with Novena and other projects, Ross Jennings launches his own solo career in 2021 with “A Shadow of My Future Self”. Embracing classic rock, pop and folk stylings, the album gives another side of Jennings than most fans have heard with his other bands. Although he’s known as being the front-man vocalist, on this album Jennings also plays all of the guitar tracks, supported by a core band of excellent musicians. With plenty of additional material still left over after the album was completed, Jennings has the making for more solo albums in the future, promising a booked calendar for years to come.

Diverse, engaging, expertly performed and produced, “A Shadow of My Future Self” is one of 2021’s true gems. It is more than a solo project, this is the birth of a career. You can read our in-depth review of the album HERE.
