Tony Ronalds - Go
Originally from Nova Scotia, Canada and now based in Sydney, Australia, singer-songwriter Tony Ronalds, has just released a brilliant and exceptional new track called Go.
The new song is taken from his forthcoming EP, and as Tony has said of the upcoming release: ‘This is my most personal, and by far the most meaningful project to date. The support from my fans has been amazing, without this support the upcoming EP never would have been possible’.
With a career in music that spans twenty five years, Tony has amassed a number of impressive achievements including performing across Canada and the United States and receiving 5 ECMA Nominations including Entertainer of the Year as the lead singer of Kilt. With the new track, Tony teamed up with Canadian producer Eric Eggleston who has also mentored with Grammy-winning mixer and producer Michael Brauer (Angélique Kidjo, Coldplay, John Mayer,) and David Kahne (Paul McCartney, The Strokes, Sublime and The Bangles) respectively.
‘Go has all the hallmarks of an across the board hit, melodic hooks, a magnificent vocal performance, a driving groove throughout, a relatable lyric and all infused with dynamics, emotion and obvious heart-wrenching proficiency.’
The track also features multi-music award winner Michael S. Ryan of The Town Heroes. Tony’s new track is a rousing amalgamation of melodic rock and pop with a subtle nod to country. The song also features a lyric which reflects a life-changing event. As Tony has said of the song’s inspiration: ‘Go tells the story of how a forty-something- year-old man living in Calgary Alberta, Canada responds when the love of his life says she wants to return to her home. Her home, in Sydney Australia, over 13,000 kilometres away.
They were in the blink of an eye and a heart-felt moment when he says, ‘Tell me when you want to go’’.
Go has all the hallmarks of an across the board hit, melodic hooks, a magnificent vocal performance, a driving groove throughout, a relatable lyric and all infused with dynamics, emotion and obvious heart-wrenching proficiency.
