Santa Cruz County, this talented Songwriter, Lyricist, Guitar
Player, Vocalist, etc. can do it all! Smooth, melodic, tasty
melodies, chords and licks combined with lyrics rich in metaphors and
cliches, give his music a signature sound. His way with words easily
paints a picture of what he's trying to portray, leaving the listener
with a clear image of a story unique to the song. He sets the mood
accordingly with descriptive melodies and guitar tones that haunt and
dazzle the imagination helping to unite the story to the music. No
shortage of talent here!
his first solo effort with Five Eighteen Music, "Someone"
is a catchy pop rock feel good song that connects the inner soul to
the real world. Ron plays a '65 Guild Starfire as foundation and
backbone and his guitar solo is well expressed using an 80's model
Les Paul Goldtop. His vocals are rich and full of luster and the
harmonies complement the lead vocal throughout the song. On Bass
guitar is Jim "JR" Ruston, who by playing his thunderous
six string bass, gives the song power and authority. Drums are played
by Pat McCue, who's solid and tight format sets the tempo with ease.
Pat came in the studio and nailed the song in only three takes.
Incredible, since he heard the song for the first time earlier that day!
