A new name to us, RONNETTE HARRISON, we’re told is a music multi tasker…. recording artist, radio personality, vocalist, pianist, composer, songwriter, piano instructor and vocal coach. Working in and around Washington DC, she started in the music biz aged just 11 when she worked with Shirley Ables & The Joy Gospel Singers. Since then she’s worked constantly in the gospel area, picking up numerous awards en route. Her first solo album, ‘Journey’ cemented her position on the gospel circuit and she’s currently working on a follow up.
From that upcoming sophomore set, the single ‘Always There’ is winning plenty of airplay on the gospel stations stateside and it’s sweet, modern soul vibe has huge crossover potential. You see the song and its message – though, yes, gospel-based – has a meaning that can be applied to secular relationships and situations too. It’s a lovely tune and well worth seeking out.
