If you took Brook Benton, Isaac Hayes, and Barry White's voices and mixed them together with Curtis Mayfield and Motown inspired music, you'd come up with Ron's mellow smooth baritone musical style.

Song writing is Ron's first love. All of the songs he records are originals written by him.

He began writing songs relatively late in life. It began as hobby to offset his demanding career as a Software Engineer in Silicon Valley.

Ron was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio and has lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for over 30 years.

I have just completed my first song thru collaboration. I am fortunate that my first one was with to of the nicest people and talented songwriters, Carolyn Baron and Earl C. Web both BJ members. The song is 'I Want To Know Love'. They also talked me into singing it. Earl also has a version I like as well. Check them both out.

Let's Make A Secret

This is my second CD

Warm, Smooth, and Phonky

A sexy, warm, smooth R&B groove from the first track to the last.

Men will find this a useful tool in seduction; the women love the resonate baritone quality of Ron's voice. Both sexes will enjoy the intelligent lyrics.

It's only my oppinion. I've gotten reviews from it sucks to outstanding on the same song. I listen to songs as if they were a single. To me a "movie song" is not a good single.
Please learn to take criticism, even if you think it's stupid. It's only 1 data point. If you only hear it once then ignore it. If you hear the samething multiple times, then maybe it needs to be heeded. The stupid one make the good ones even sweeter. I was not trying to be cruel.

well that's a misconstrued concept! MARKET POTENTIAL... there are several markets and if your song is doing well in TV/FILM or even radio remember all of those mediums are markets.. Someone can make more movie by movie placements as oppose to selling s single. Keep that in mind! Open up your thinking! There are plenty of singles what industry labels thought were hits to have them turn out as flops. SO again whatever market it is... does it have a market potential? Thanks and yes you are the only one to give a low rating on that end.. so I'll do as you say and ignore it! The other thing is you tout like you give criticism.. why not in your review you leave some pointers.. like hey this can be fixed? or trying adding more drums? the piano could be a bit more aggressive here.. (EXAMPLES).. anyway thanks!

When I think about a 'marketable single' I say to myself "If this song came on the radio, would I turn it up and listen." You could listen to my music and say"'He's got a nerve, his stuff sux"
It is easier to criticize than it is to create. I could never come close to creating a piece as complicated as yours. I don't know enough to tell you how I would improve it. You are obviously a very talented person. What we do is subjective and not everyone is going to "get us". Smokey Robinson said the first think songwriters should develope is a thick skin.
Believe me when someone doesn't like my product, it stings. But if I don't see any valuable tid bits in their critizism I let it go.

I get where you are coming from. Yes, I've received unfavorable reviews many times however its usually constructive and I embrace those no matter how hard it may be to take. So that's not an issue for me. My skin is very tough. However, I get bothered when something doesn't make any sense. There you go again narrowing what is meant by "Marketability". You can be so narrow minded to say single market. What if this song can sell an emotion or scene in a movie or Advertisement. I am only tellin u think to broaden your scope on the issue. There's a bigger world than radio. Just keep that in mind for other reviews.

And lastly. You were rating an instrumental therefore how can u use your narrow judging for just "radio" purposes. Who releases insrtrumentals to radio for major spins? Think about that. Now how many instrumentals do u hear behind movies/advertisments/websites. Therefore my point being think broader about marketability.

I dont get your review. How can you say "Made for You" instrumental can be great for a FILM and then give it a 1/5 for market potential. WOW!!! Also this is RnB listen to the version with vocals.. Also listen to classics by Whitney Houston or Mariah carey with this similar style. MC - Without You or Whitney Houston's - I Look to You. Thanks for the terrible/strange review. I will be reporting you to Broadjam. Thanks!

He's a bitter soul. Did the same thing to me. Be sure to mention abuse on my behalf as well.

A lot of people take this review thing to seriously. They think that if they give a good or great song a bad review, it gives them a better chance @ top 10. The reviewing process here is greatly flawed. Just keep reporting it.

Activate the songs you want reviewed (by clicking the red shield beside em) and then do as many reviews as possible.

Harsh comments and scores won't advance your played out career. Please evolve. If Charlie Wilson can do it, so can you. Thanks for nothing.
