Ron was born and raised in Michigan. While attending college, Ron decided to explore the possibilities
of making songwriting a profession.
After graduating from college, Ron continued co-writing, recording songs with his twin brother, Arnold. They constantly
promoted their demos to record labels and music publishers in the Detroit area. "We found" says Ron, "that much of the music
was custom-made for a select group of artists. There were too many people trying to second guess each other by writing in one particular style."
In 1976, the Patton Brothers moved to Los Angeles. Shortly afterwards, they began writing songs for Holland-Dozier-Holland Productions in Hollywood.
In 1980, Ron co-founded Baywest Records, which was based in Northern California. Co-wrote, produced, and arranged following songs released on
Don't Blame Me When You Lose Me (Artist: Michael Peyser)
Your Key Fits (Artist: Laurie Roberts)
Hook Me and Sneak Previews (Artist: Leroy "Ace" Miller)
Ain't Nuthin' New Under The Sun (Except My Love)
Has Somebody Else Been Lovin' You? (Artist: Monique)
In 2003, Ron released his first solo CD entitled, "Biggie Was Here," which represented a collection of instrumental tracks with a pop/R&B, jazz-oriented hip
hop, dance flavor. You can hear some tracks from it at www.cdbaby.com/ropatt.
