WHITNEY ROSS-BARRIS is a Toronto-based jazz singer and actor who has performed on stages all around the world.   She sings an eclectic mix of classic jazz standards, dark and colourful singer-songwriter covers, and vintage-sounding originals with a playful and sultry edge.

Following the release of her debut album, “Everybody’s Here,” Ross-Barris recently released her second album, “The Bright Lunch Trio” with her group of the same name, featuring guitarist Nathan Hiltz and bassist Ross MacIntyre. The album of original music by Ross-Barris and Hiltz continues to receive regular support by Canadian radio stations (JAZZFM.91, CBC Radio One).

She lives in Toronto’s Leslieville district “with the coffee snobs”, where she “whiles away the tedious hours chasing her three adorable young hellions”.
