Ron Nehemiah Aka RonN

 

New Haven (Connecticut) born singer-songwriter-producer RonN always loves to tell a good story but especially when he can share it through his gift of song. His mother’s love of Gospel as well as RonN’s association with many legends of Jazz, Blues, RnB, Boogie and Soul, instilled in him a deep appreciation for and love of all these musical styles, each having had a special influence on both his singing and his writing. RonN’s delivery is passionate and authentic with an emotional transparency that ranges from resonant baritone to throaty deep timbres including his beloved trademark – “the moan” – which is the powerful expression found in early RnB, Soul, Blues and Gospel. RonN’s special fondness for lyrical Jazz and the all encompassing “Joy of the Groove” are just two more of the many musical characteristics that add depth and dimension to his “vocal interplay”.

    RonN is a true cosmopolitan, feeling “totally at home in many places”; a vibrant musical enigma, refusing to be “boxed in” by the music industry. Through the music he so loves, he belongs to and shares his stories with empathic people around the globe.

Johnnie Sheppard

  

“I believe life is about constant changing. Yet, there are certain things that stay the same. For me this certain thing is music. It is there for me each and every day just like my morning coffee. It is as important as any part of a human body. I express the boiling melodies in me through my guitar - have been a big fan of those six strings ever since I was a young boy. Have you ever heard a Stratocaster cry?... although the sound of a Telecaster pleases my ear the most…the combination of a Tele and my all-tube amp defines my Blues.

    Together with Ron we discovered the vibration of the album. Ron and me are from entirely different parts of the planet so no wonder we learned our music in different ways. This can easily lead to problems but in our case the ‘Two Way Connection’ means that we were looking for these differences on purpose in order to merge them. This fusion gave birth to this album, and I really hope you will enjoy our Blues the way we do.”
