Emerging singer-songwriter Kevin Ross has announced his debut album, The Awakening, is set to release on March 24 on Motown Records.
“I really look forward to people listening to the inspiration that’s on there,” Ross told Rated R&B in a recent interview. “This is my first album, so I really touched on a lot of things. It’s a very vulnerable and transparent record that speaks on a lot of issues that’s going on now.”
Along with his announcement, Ross also released his new single “Pick You Up.” Over a finger-snapping beat, Ross reminds himself that he must keep his eyes on the prize in order to overcome the obstacles in his path.

Ross will also join Ro James on his XIX Tour on select dates in North America. The DMV native will start his stint on March 2 at The Howard Theatre. He will play in other cities such as Baltimore, Chicago and Memphis.
