Electronic Press Kit
From the long arm of the law to the outstretched arms of blues and rock, Ron Addison personifies rhythm and blues with his soulful and rocking lead singing. Growing up on country music, as a teenager he also started loving the blues and rock and roll. Ron played and sang while in the military and then, when he was in the State Police, had a trio with his brothers. The music became full time after he retired and is truly a labor of love. His music is tight and loose in all the right places, and shows a precision and maturity some artists take a lifetime of recording to achieve. The newest CD is "Ride On" with the debut CD titled "Testify".
The Tomcats are a band that will remind you why you love music or introduce you to a whole new heartfelt world in music. This Southwest Virginia based band plays the blues- rock to make your feet dance and your heart ready to burst with emotions. Herb Olshin plays the lead guitar, Brian Seiler is on drums. Special guests often appear in the shows while many influences set the groundwork from a blend of professional musical abilities and personalities.
Blues Matters Magazine "His voice can be deeply resonant and rich or forceful, growl and drive with a hot southern rock edge. Ron proves he is a more than a capable Blues vocalist, with a rich tone to his voice…a good mixture of styles throughout this album…all held together by Ron’s commanding vocal and as previously mentioned some excellent musicians.”
Rhys Williams, Blues Blast Magazine "....Addison himself sings with an endearingly worn and weathered voice and a vocal style that contains hints of his country background, at times recalling the great Billy Joe Shaver......There is an authenticity and deep emotional connection to his voice that makes it very listenable..."
