Chris Ronald Now living in Vancouver, Canada, contemporary folk singer-songwriter Chris Ronald emigrated from his native England in 2002. He was born in Ormskirk, Lancashire, and brought up in Derby & Burton. Influenced by countless British and North American artists of the 60s onward, Ronald’s music has been described as “Canadian folk with British roots,” and The Province likened it to “the country and folk that came out of Laurel Canyon and the British Isles in the mid-seventies.” Ronald first got hooked on songwriting at the age of fifteen when he put to music a poem he wrote in high school, but he only started to go public in his thirties after moving to Canada and self-producing his first two albums: Pacific Time (2004) and Turning Tides (2011). In a glowing review, The Georgia Straight praised Ronald’s songwriting and “beautifully clear tenor voice” and wondered “where his obvious talent has been hiding for so long.” Encouraged, Ronald went one step further on his next project hiring ace producer and multi-instrumentalist, John MacArthur Ellis. The resulting Timeline (2014) album catapulted Ronald to a new level in his career with, among other accolades, a nomination for “Songwriter of the Year” at the 2014 Canadian Folk Music Awards. Chris Ronald is an international touring artist. In live performance, he draws on his abilities as a highly skilled singer, storyteller and musician (guitar, harmonica, and ukulele) to deliver a show that is captivating and unique. And in 2017, Ronald added another batch of “refreshingly original” songs to his repertoire with his latest album, Fragments, released on the esteemed Canadian folk label Borealis John Ellis John Ellis is an award-winning producer and multi-instrumentalist from British Columbia who flits effortlessly between guitar, dobro, mandolin, banjo, and more.
