Ron Patterson's passion for music has only grown stronger since he began his career at the young age of 11. Over the past 13 years he has cultivated his natural talent and skill. As a child, Ron was the lead vocalist of the soulful Hip Hop group the "Fly Guys". From 1990 to 1994 the group appeared on BET's Screen Scene, the nationally syndicated television show "ROC", made numerous live appearances and was featured many times in "Fresh" magazine.
Actor / Director Charles S. Dutton saw such great potential in the guys that he wasted no time signing on as their financial manager. The members of the "Fly Guys" were a success, but at such a young age, still had many years of education ahead – both in school and in life. The group broke up, but Ron was not discouraged, his genuine love of music and entertainment led him to start producing and writing for himself as a solo artist. Ron's gift of music also allowed him to teach himself how to play the piano and the guitar.
A few years later, Ron made the responsible decision to continue his schooling, and attended UC Berkeley. He graduated with degrees in Cognitive Science and Mathematics, and his involvement in Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc. both empowered him and taught him the true meaning of self-discipline. To this day, the sum of his experiences at Berkeley makes Ron a more marketable artist.
Throughout his time at Cal, Ron never gave up on his dreams of one day becoming a renowned musical talent. In fact, the knowledge he gained has made him not only a musician, but also a businessman. This past year has been a virtual whirlwind for Ron; he has opened for artists like Brian McKnight, Deborah Cox, Chico DeBarge, Aaron Hall, Carl Thomas, Thicke, Nina Sky, KC and Dave Hollister, Trina, filmed his first music video, and spent hours in the studio – each song even hotter than the one before. Look out for his phenomenal solo mainstream debut in summer 2006.
