"Ronnie King to Kindred Records"

“Ronnie King’s music occupies that hard-to define space between bluegrass and folk music. Some might call it Americana, but it is clearly informed by a thorough going knowledge and appreciation for bluegrass. This is fine music – check it out.”
- John Lawless, The Bluegrass Blog - The Bluegrass Blog


"Kindred Records Signs Label Deal with Ronnie King"

Irvine, KY (Mar. 16, 2010) - Kindred Records has signed a record deal with Americana/Folk/Bluegrass artist Ronnie King.

Ronnie King's new solo project "Free of Guilt" is scheduled for release on Kindred Records May 1, 2010.
The first single "I'd Like To See You" is accompanied by award winning vocalist Dale Ann Bradley, and is due to be digitally released to radio in April on AirPlayDirect.

"Free of Guilt," includes eleven original songs by Ronnie, plus one track "Cigarette Girl" by James Overbee. Studio musicians include CJ Cain on guitar, Matt De Spain on resonator, Will Parsons on banjo, James Overbee on harmonica, Daniel Carwile on fiddle, Scott Lambert on drums, and Owen Reynolds on bass. Billie Renee Johnson also contributes harmony vocals on one track.

Ronnie recorded and performed with “New River Line” from 2002- 2006, an original bluegrass band he co-founded in Kentucky. It was during this time in which Ronnie began his songwriting, contributing many originals to NRL’s first two projects, one of which “My Brother Paul” earned runner up in the 2007 Chris Austin Songwriting contest at the annual MerleFest festival in Wilkesboro, NC. Ronnie left NRL in 2007 to pursue solo interest in other genres such as folk and rock, devoting his time to a song writing journey in multiple paths. His songwriting is emotionally intense with socially relevant material, and ranges from controversial subjects such as poverty, drug abuse, and politics to memories of home, thoughts of freedom, love, and social responsibility.

"Free of Guilt" was recorded, engineered, and produced by Ken Holbrook at Wickerbrook Studios in Richmond, Ky.

Kindred is pleased to add Ronnie King's new project "Free of Guilt" to its catalog of Kentucky artists.
