About the Artist
Burke Roney has been a "closet" song writer for years. Most recently he wrote the inspiring song "Hey Lori" after his cousin Lori had failed to beat her battle with cancer and passed away. The song was passed first among family members and friends. The requests for copies of the song from others who heard it expanded and have literally come in from all over the country and even foreign countries. With the encouragement of many, Burke finally consented to recording some other songs he had written. One track on the CD "The best is yet to come" was sent to an international company and accepted as their theme song in their March 2003 convention. Burke was invited to preform in the Tokyo Dome in Tokyo, Japan to more than 25,000 people! This event put Burke on the map and was the start of many great opportunities to come. Burke has since performed in Taiwan in Linko Stadium to a crowd of 8,500 and in the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas with JC Chasez and others. He has sold thousands of CDs in Asia and now continues to be well received here in the United States. The title track "Let it all come down" has found great popularity and national radio-play because of it's strong chorus and upbeat message. The song peaked in December of 2003 at #22 on the Billboard AC and R&R AC charts. Burke was one of the highest debuting indie artist of 2003 for Adult Contemporary. While all background vocals were recorded by Burke himself, the musicians used in recording and arranging are a star-studded cast of top talent in the industry. These include Vinnie Colaitua, Abraham Laboriel, Michael Thompson, Jamie Glaser, John Gilutin, Greg Mathieson and The Brunson Brothers.
