RON COLEMAN WITH ROSIE FLORES
LA-based singer-songwriter Ron Coleman is known primarily for his songwriting. Some of his most successful cuts include:
- Towin' the Line - written with Rocky Burnette, who had the top ten hit recording
- Somebody Loses, Somebody Wins - co-written with Allan Laney and Billy Graham, recorded by Rosie Flores
- Honky Tonk Man - written with Gary Stewart, recorded by Lacey J. Dalton for her first album
In the Seventies, Ron played bass with the Everly Brothers, and went on to form the Sundance Band, which Don Everly joined after he and Phil broke up. The group at one time included Albert Lee, Buddy Emmons, John Hartford, Jeff Baxtor and Pete Gavin. Other members included the cream of the LA music scene, too numerous to mention.
Ron's current LA band includes Albert Lee, Wayne Durham, Tom Canning, John Molo, J.T. Thomas and occasionally Rosie Flores.
At this time there is a Ron Coleman album in the works which will include new material as well as Coleman songs that were previously covered by other artists. You can preview some of the songs in the RealAudio section below.
