Jon Roniger’s heartfelt roots rock is a truly American slice of songwriting. Adding his unique voice to the lineage of great U.S. artists, Roniger brings to the table music that touches on the human spirit without pretence and with much emotional power. Capturing the passion and power of what it means to be us, his songs are mirrors into which we each can look and see ourselves.

Poignancy

Roniger’s songwriting masterfully captures the keen colors of the human heart, embodying the full array of feelings of which we are capable. “Music makes me feel euphoria, desire, loneliness, nostalgia, sorrow and elation,” Roniger says. And his intense emotional life can be heard in each of his songs as he explores hurt and happiness, love and sadness, shying away from nothing, embracing everything from love to heartbreak with equal fervor.

Soul’s Voice

Roniger’s music achieves the depth of feeling it does because of his songwriting philosophy. “Music is the soul’s voice,” he says. That’s the fulcrum of his beliefs, that music is the inner self speaking outwardly. Music not written honestly and without fear or restraint is artificial and lacks true feeling. “There is no other form of communication that is understood so deeply,” Roniger says.

The Artist at Work

Roniger has shared the stage with such artists as Big Head Todd and the Monsters, The Samples, Stroke 9, Luce and others. He tours regularly with a focus on acoustic music of late. Roniger just finished a two-year tour stateside and two tours in Ireland and the United Kingdom. He has recorded a new album at Nashville’s 16 Ton Recording Studios on Music Row slated for early 2008 release; it’s called “Charmed Life.” It was produced by Robert Reynolds (The Mavericks, Swag) and Jim Reilley (New Dylans, Curb Writer). He will be returning to Ireland and the UK in 2008. Roniger is involved in a project in which he releases a song per week for his “Songs in the Raw” blog (Jon Roniger Blog  Songs in the Raw ). He is currently working with A&R Select, the leading indie A&R firm in Hollywood, CA.
