Ronin – Featured Artist

RoninRonin is our featured artist this week. He is a new artist based out of Philadelphia, PA. I normally don’t pick featured artists with only one song, but I think that Ronin has such vast potential. So just off of his song “Chemical Smiles” I decided to make the call! Ronin joined us on our weekly live stream Indie Music LIVE! episode 179 and we took the time to really see what he’s all about.

Ronin – Featured Artist

Ronin says that he’s “just a guy who makes music”. When he crafts his songs, he cares about it and he does it because it fuels his soul. Ronin says that music is one of the few things that makes sense to him in this crazy-ass world. His single “Chemical Smiles” was one of the first songs he wrote but took quite a while to finish. Ultimately, it came out with a heavy electronica influence among a few others. Ronin learned how to produce on his computer and thru trial and error, he finally completed it. Take a listen below…

If you just listen to the single above then you’ll probably be singing the chorus for a few days, I know I was. In the Deeper w/ Dave segment, Dave immediately referenced Prince after listening to Ronin’s music. Of course, Ronin mentions him as an influence as well. Ronin said the first time he listened to Prince he didn’t quite get him, as was the case with many others. He said though that the “tiny man who wore makeup” eventually became a love of his…again as was the case with many others! Ronin says he’s not trying to predict how his career will go. He says technically he still hasn’t figured out what he wants to do with his life. For now though he’s going with music. We’re glad he is! Make sure to check him out!
