About Ronnette Erwin
As an Artist, she developed vocal, guitar, and piano accompaniment for her songwriting after being in a local band called Distant Thunder.
In 1994, Ronnette Erwin was approached by Addington Productions to demo a project of two songs in the Neon Records Studio accompanied by the band Cash featuring famed fiddler, Jason Carter of the Del McCoury Band. Dwight Whitley was also in and out of the studio working on his Album, dedicated to his brother Keith Whitley, "Brotherly Love" during that time period. She gained experience in the studio process and a great appreciation for the studio musicians, producer, and coaching that she received. The two releases were pitched to Nashville associates.
Early influences were Elvis Presley, Stevie Nicks, Emmylou Harris, Loretta Lynn, Willie and Waylon, Hank, Jr., Dolly Parton, Conway Twitty, George Jones, Patty Loveless, Keith Whitley, and Vern Gosdin. Bands that influenced her were Alabama, Guns & Roses, Fleetwood Mac, Shenandoah, The Highway Men, The Bee Gees, U2, CCR, and Journey. Current favorites are Sturgill Simpson, Adele, Chris Stapleton, Justin Timberlake, and Cold Play.
In January 2014, Erwin released three tracks including "In Love with You Again", "Time to Play", and "Ponytail Mane" from her "Time to Play" Album that she wrote, composed, and recorded.
Although Songwriting, pitching to Artists, and copyright/royalty procedures were initially the focus of her abilities, her public performances gained enthusiasm and esteemed her as a vocalist in her own right.
