Ronny provides the guitar grooves and licks as well as some keyboards as well. The rest of the band is provided by Player A, the Creative Soul Jazz super group of the top jazz players in Nashville.
With a new single ready to drop on the contemporary jazz charts, and a smoking new set of tracks, Ronny is ready to let the world know about his guitar, and his music.
