Biography

Worcester would not strike many as being at the forefront of the music scene, porcelain and teashops yes: but somewhere between the rolling hills and the rambling river a sonic storm is growing. Fast becoming well known for their high energy, high emotion live shows; Ronin offer the antidote to a generation calling out for new direction, calling out for something real.

Loz was born surrounded by music. Kit was born deaf.

Descended from pirates and smugglers, the three years Kit has been living in Worcester mark the longest he’s stayed anywhere; his life so far reads a strange tale of challenges, cage fighting, being on the wrong end of attempted murder and forgetting how to play violin; the only constant in his life has been singing.

Somebody moved there by choice. That’s how Dave’s story started, brought up in the middle of no-where Dave turned to his brothers bass guitar and his fathers LP’s, cue montage and hey presto: Young Dave.

Born double handicapped, being left handed and ginger, Jake locked himself away from the world, practicing, learning, tech-ing, biding his time, until at last the time was right, to strike at the music scene with his dynamic and unusual playing style.

Loz’s toys as a child were his father’s guitars; he truly has riffery for blood and rhythm for soul. Playing on stage from a young age in a myriad of styles, Loz has paid his dues, and if Dave & Jake are the back bone of Ronin, Loz is the heart.

The synergy of massively different musical backgrounds of the members make ronin an unmissable experience.

Lyrics

Fly Away

Written By: Kit Kinrade, Lawrence Crame, Jake Howarth, Dave Whittaker

Hanging out with all my friends, waiting for the last train home
Sun fades down across the sky, illuminates the fields where we made love.

Another perfect summer day, a smile, the wind flows through your tousled hair.
Running through the fields where our true fields can be revealed
We fall together. We’ll never fall apart.

So take me to our secret place where the lovin’ flows and
The clouds will never find us, never find us
We’ll Dance & Drink & Sing & Fly away until we’ve left the world behind us
Fly Away

Driving home so satisfied, the world I’ve conquered at my back
Coming home to you, you give me all the love and mercy that I lack, you make me whole.

Looking out across the crowd, I see your face stand out against the rest.
There’ll never be another one, its you who smiles and takes away my breath. (You make me whole).

So take me to our secret place where the lovin’ flows and
The clouds will never find us, never find us
We’ll Dance & Drink & Sing & Fly away until we’ve left the world behind us
Fly Away

Look at me, not through me
God see in me see to the heart of me

Look at me, not through me
God see my heart

Without You

Written By: Kit Kinrade, Lawrence Crame, Jake Howarth, Dave Whittaker

A pen, crumpled paper
A soul full of heart
With nowhere to start

When you were here to hold me
The words came so easy
My love light used to shine
Cause I knew that you were mine

Without you, cant see the beauty in the day,
The sadness in the sunset,
I can’t see the day through without you

Since you’re gone
Can’t find the will to get along
But I know that I’ll be better when the pain has gone

No one here to stab back
No one to paint my evenings black
I held you up, but you just held me back

Without you I can see the beauty in the day,
The sadness in the sunset,
I’ve never been better of than without you

Without you, Now I Smile while you walk away
I’ve never been better off than without you
