Ron Halsey here and I’ve been playing electric and acoustic guitar since I was 15 (nearly 3 years now ;D).I was born in West Virginia, and playing Bluegrass wasn’t just encouraged, it was the law. Being a rebel, I fled and gravitated over to The Beatles and classic rock(Rush, Zep, Aerosmith, and of course ELO).I played in several club bands around Virginia before moving to California, where I landed with the indie recording group The Mineral Kings. Not getting “rich” or “famous” (I would’ve taken either one) I got a regular job as a music pastor. Pay was average but the benefits were “out of this world,” or so I was told. Next, I moved back to Virginia, where I have continued to be involved with music as a guitarist with several local bands, as well as Evil Woman–The American ELO. I’ve additionally done a couple of soundtracks for some indie films and recorded with many local artists. Future plans include becoming “rich” or “famous” (I’ll take either one).
