After receiving his Bachelors degree in English and Philosophy at Ohio University, Ron was a manager at Boston’s premier jazz club, The Jazz Workshop, and then moved to New York City to work as CTI Records road manager touring with Airto, Deodato and the CTI Jazz All-Stars. He earned his Master’s in Broadcast Management and in 1986, moved to Cincinnati, Ohio, where he became Special Projects Producer for WVXU, 91.7 FM (NPR) and the X-Star Network of seven stations in four states. In addition to producing and hosting three music programs, Ron produced three compilation CDs featuring Cincinnati-based jazz musicians. He also served as producer for Riders in the Sky’s "Riders Radio Theater" show and the Windham Hill "Winter Solstice Concerts."
From 1993 – 2005, Esposito was the bassist in the Cincinnati-based blues group the High Street Rhythm Rockers, later known as Greg Schaber & High Street, winning numerous regional music awards, touring extensively between Chicago and Memphis and recording four CDs. Recently he has been playing acoustic bass with a jazz trio.
By 2005, Ron Esposito’s lifelong interest in spirituality, metaphysics, philosophy and personal transformation led to his certification as a Life Coach and Enneagram teacher and trainer. Today he works with clients at the Conscious Living Center in Cincinnati. He also co-hosts a weekly radio program "Waves of the New Age" featuring a mix of spacious, soul-filled music and conscious talk on WAIF, 88.3 FM, in Cincinnati, Ohio.
His debut recording project playing both the Tibetan and Quartz Crystal Singing Bowls was released in 2008. Entitled "Lifting the Veil," the CD is a collection of Enneagram meditations spoken by Esposito and Deborah Ooten and also features music by keyboardist Billy Larkin and guitarist Ric Hordinski.
For his debut solo music project, "Open Heart," Ron assembled a group of outstanding musicians from genres that span both ancient and modern cultures. Born out of conceptual discussions with these fellow musicians, the result is an inspired sound experience featuring Ron on the Tibetan and Crystal Singing Bowls and African Kalimba.
"My lifelong interest in philosophy has deepened my interest in the cultures of Tibet, India and the Far East, where transformational teachings are a way of life. My subsequent introduction to the transcendent qualities of Tibetan and Crystal Singing Bowls opened for me a new universe of musical possibilities."
Ron Esposito plays in concerts and for yoga and meditation centers in the Greater Cincinnati region. He is currently working on new music for his next CD featuring the bowls with cello, violin and deep space synthesizer.
