“His voice can be deeply resonant and rich or forceful, growl and drive with a hot southern rock edge.”
— Blues Matters Magazine
“ Music lets me feel a vast assortment of emotions from smiling and laughing to tears of grieve and pain. My desire is that you will feel different emotions in each show we play. May you dance in joy and erase your troubles for a few hours or find peace in the comfort of a slow song or memories in the lyrics of a song.. Since the death of my wife last year, I've really tried to focus of the important things in life that we take for granted each day. My new songs will show some of these emotions and hopefully you will find something that relates to you too. Our new CD "Ride On" is available now for sale and download. If you've never heard us, I hope you like what you hear and if you have heard or seen us before, I hope you are pleasently surprised with our new material.” - Ron Addison
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".
