This week’s Clarksville Downtown Market featured guest will be Nashville musician John Roniger. His heartfelt roots rock is a truly American slice of songwriting. Adding his unique voice to the lineage of great U.S. artists, Roniger brings to the table music that touches on the human spirit without pretense and with much emotional power. Capturing the passion and power of what it means to be us, his songs are mirrors into which we each can look and see ourselves.

“He pours his heart out to the listener and does this with a lot of devotion.” – [Podiuminfo]

John has shared the stage with such artists as Big Head Todd and the Monsters, The Samples, Stroke 9, Luce and others. He tours regularly with a focus on acoustic music of late. Roniger just finished a two-year tour stateside and two tours in Ireland and the United Kingdom. He has recently recorded a new album at Nashville’s 16 Ton Recording Studios on Music Row that was released in 2008; it’s called “Charmed Life.” It was produced by Robert Reynolds (The Mavericks, Swag) and Jim Reilley (New Dylans, Curb Writer). Roniger is involved in a project in which he releases a song per week for his “Songs in the Raw” blog (Jon Roniger Blog – Songs in the Raw ). He is currently working with A&R Select, the leading indie A&R firm in Hollywood, CA.
