Ron Pope

Ron Pope could be considered a musical renaissance man. He writes, composes, records, produces, manages, and has ignited his own career. He has released ten albums and countless singles. After all of that, he feels that his latest album called “Calling Off The Dogs” is his strongest release yet. The album follows a story of two people’s relationship from start to finish. Each song is a defining moment in the relationship, for example, “Lick My Wounds” is from the moment that they first see each other. The album continues all the way through to their last moment together.

Don’t be fooled, this is not your typical love story album. The tracks range from quieter piano sounds to powerful rock songs with catchy and upbeat lyrics. It’s a perfect release to start off 2014. The conceptual and instrumental awareness are what make Ron Pope this week’s Press Play artist.
