ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Each song on Move On delivers ghostly familiar, but always new and engaging grooves and arrangements. In some ways, this recording is a welcomed return to the cross-over songwriting styles of decades past. In other ways, it is refreshingly original.

Ron works his steel and nylon string acoustic guitar like a piano arranger/composer, solidly laying down harmonically captivating samba, blues and jazz grooves against a bass/drum rhythm track. Supporting instruments are used like voices and backup vocals like instrumentation to sparsely adorn otherwise stand alone guitar songs.

Ron Harrison currently performs in the Northern Michigan area as a solo act and occasionally with his studio band.

Check out Ron's new release, River Road. On this cd, he experiments with horns, keyboard and bluegrass banjo.

Northern Express Weekly

Move On showcases a great talent
The 10 songs here are romantic, wistful and keen in their insights. More than half the equation is the quality of Ron Harrison's voice which is pleasantly masculine and down to earth.

Undiscovered masterpiece
Sometimes you are so stunned by an album you just reconsider your angry position against today's popular music. This is the case with Ron Harrison's Move On.
The album starts with Wrong Turns and Hard Times, an extremely well-produced track full of subtle chord progressions, that sets the mood for the entire CD. You can hear traces of the sadly underrated Terence Boylan here and there (IMHO, Boylan's 1977 album is certainly memorable).
The next track is probably my favourite one. It's a bossa-nova! exquisitely performed by Ron's band, with a great flute solo and some sensual female vocal arrangements.
Take It As A Sign is another brazilian-influenced gem written from Ron's acoustic guitar intro.
I could comment on the whole album, but you better do yourself a favour: buy Move On as soon as you can! You will be moved by its beauty, elegance and charm. It's encouraging that there are still people who know how to write, perform and produce wonderful music. If we were in a more ethical world now, Ron would be a major label artist.
PS: I hope Ron will be back in the studio pretty soon!

Brilliant debut
There are a few things to say about Ron Harrisons brilliant debut cd. In his songs he combines elements of jazz, blues and folk in a unique way, he is a fantastic guitarist, his lyrics show deep reflections of life and love. This is timeless acoustic music. Last but not least: Move on Ron, I can´t wait to hear more from you !
