He has already released a dozen albums under his own name, always accompanied by raving reviews from the music press. Respectfully, fellow musicians whisper his name, praising his qualities as a songwriter and his extraordinary guitar skills. Ron Spielman has been touring the music world for 20 years. As a discoverer along the boundaries of singer/songwriter, blues, jazz, fusion, rock, pop and folk, he remains edgy with all catchy melodies, always walking the fine line between accessibility and depth.
Spielman’s latest work is titled “Tip of My Tongue”, a pure instrumental album, on which he hears and reinterprets songs from his last four solo albums in the style of “Standards”. Translating all the nuances and facets of the voice to the guitar means challenge and liberation at the same time to him. By taking the pause as seriously as the played note, he gives the songs an atmospheric emotionality that allows to indulge and drift beyond their musical and technical finesse. More space for imagination, taking new perspectives, so the concern of this album, which is true for listeners and the artist alike.
