Brooklyn, NY based artist, Ron Pope, is much more than the labels and stereotypes he’s acquired during his budding career. Pope is a musical Renaissance Man, writing, composing, recording, producing, managing, and igniting his own career. He’s stood at a crossroads where so many musicians find themselves — at the intersection of record label and independence. In an ever-evolving industry filled with rejection and compromise, Pope has plotted a new course for his music to reach loyal listeners, taking the industry-road-less-traveled in exchange for the ultimate payback, a league of devoted fans the world over. With his latest album, Calling Off The Dogs (released worldwide January 6, 2014), he is exploring new territory and pushing boundaries even further. The first single, Lick My Wounds (available worldwide on August 6th), is the first taste of this new exploration.
