This project, started in 2013, with my first EP “Watching The Stars” It all began when I included Sinatra songs in my live set, and was overwhelmed with the audience response, although I know I don‘t sound anything like him, I just couldn’t resist writing some songs in that style. Stuart of One Night Stand Music said of ”How Are You Today” Once more another outstanding track, please keep sharing your music with us”
This encouragement gave me the confidence to continue, so I hired a new arranger and a new producer who were willing to help me experiment with the sound. In the second EP “Swing Sensation” you can hear that start to happen, but as the lyric states at the end of verse two of “Win Win Win” This race is sealed and signed.
“Win Win Win” is my third EP and I’m certain that we now have the musical signature that is Ronald Simone, which is epitomised in the title track. The lush backing vocals blended with a jazz pop vibe make listeners sit up and take notice and the excitement is tangible. I signed my first contract with Joey Welz of Canadian American Records in 2013 and have since had interest from several sync licensing companies, but it’s this EP that’s ready for radio. At the last count this is now over 200k The Next EP Coming Soon is “Time” Keep in touch via our web site or messenger my first 3 EP’s will be on special offer soon.
I met up with a close friend recently, and he reminded me of my first project as a songwriter, it was the bi-centennial of the Scottish Poet Robert Burns 1994, it was with a full band and I a had a horn section similar to what I do now. It was in the Palace theatre in Kilmarnock, Ayrshire, the theatre was nearly full with 500+ in the audience, and we played all 12 songs from the album, and more. This same friend was at a concert recently when I was singing Sinatra songs. He said in a Scottish accent “It’s a bit like Sinatra meets Robbie Burns” at first I didn’t like the comment, because I don’t use my accent when singing swing music, but there is a bit of truth in what he said, because I’ve had some
comments that say “We noticed a little bit of a Scottish accent” I’m not aware of it, but I’ve learned to embrace it. I interpret the songs my own way, but there is only one Frank Sinatra! and only one Ronald Simone.
