Farewell Ross

We’ve certainly seen a lot in our 22 years of existence: 5 studio albums, traveling the world, and so many great experiences. One constant through those years has been our 2nd tenor Ross Lynde. It is with a heavy heart that we announce Ross Lynde will be leaving the group this summer.

A message from Ross:

“I feel so lucky to have been given the opportunity to make my living through performing and interacting with audiences from across the globe. I never dreamed that Cadence would become such a huge part of my life, with so many incredible moments, onstage and off. It is no small decision to declare my time with Cadence has come to an end. I’ll still be performing with the boys for the next several months, and we’re planning a ‘farewell show’ on June 4th…keep posted for details. So what’s next for me? I’ll be taking a little time for some creative projects that have been percolating for awhile, and also planning to walk the Camino Trail sometime soon. If you’d like to keep in touch with me I can be reached at rosslynde@gmail.com. This is not goodbye, but instead au revoir. My sincere thanks to all my friends, family and fans and especially to the Cadence boys who have always supported me.”

A message from the group:

“Ross has shared his playfulness, heart, and musical abilities with Cadence since the very beginning. For over 20 years, he has given himself to the group, the fans, and any random passerby on the street with whom he may be able to spark even just a fleeting moment of human connection. What has Cadence learned from Ross in those two decades?

•Take pride in the art you create and do a good job of it, but don’t forget to have fun along the way.
•Do NOT under ANY circumstances leave your phone unattended, unless you want his nose as a lock screen and a reminder one year from now to wash your horse.
•Open your heart to anyone and everyone, because you never know who might need it or what might come of it.
•When walking from backstage to the CD table, be sure to put Ross in the middle, lest you risk losing him to any number of conversations along the way.
•Improvise.
•If you make a mistake onstage, immediately make an even bigger mistake, thereby negating the first mistake.
•Fight to retain your curiosity for life, music, and everyone around you.

We want to thank Ross for all the years he spent with the group, and all the smiles he has left in his wake. The group won’t be the same without him, but we will work diligently to preserve his legacy that has become part of the Cadence DNA: 50% Good music, 50% Fun. All the best with your future endeavors Ross! We love you!”
