Ross Valory

Don’t stop believing in the power of B-E-A-D!

Ross Valory, who oft configures his instrument to the aforementioned lower alternative tuning, is Journey’s founding bassist who appears on all their platters save for one.


A writer, multi-instrumentalist, and vocalist, Ross is a versatile cat who seamlessly traverses hard rock to jazz fusion to arena pop. Valory has also plied his craft with Steve Miller (Rock Love / 1971), Michael Bolton, The Storm with Kevin Chalfant, Greg Rollie, and Steve Smith; and The Vu (with Prairie Prince), among other ensembles and recording projects.
