After 11 albums, folk singer-songwriter Ron Pope has teamed up with the Brooklyn-based band consisting of Paul Hammer, Alex Foote, Andrew Pertes, Alex Brumel, Alan Markley, & Michael Riddleberger for a 12th album that dropped in January of this year.
And while the Nashville-based musician produces his music completely independently, he's found incredible commercial success, having had his music featured on NBCs The Voice, the CWs 90210 and The Vampire Diaries, and twice on FOXs So You Think You Can Dance. He's performed on MTVs TRL, and sold over 2 million singles. His music has been streamed over 120 million times, and now, the summer after his latest big release, he's playing a few shows in the U.S.
Ron Pope and the Nighthawks went from a concept to a finished project in a lake house in Pope's home state of Georgia, now peaking at no. 48 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. Catch him live this summer in Brooklyn, Minneapolis, or Knoxville, and be sure to check out our exclusive upcoming session with him at Ear Studios in Austin, TX.
