Michael G. Ronstadt releases “Foolish Fox”2 min read

Michael G. Ronstadt is a singer/songwriter and cello player who has a long family history in music. He has played traditional Southwestern and Mexican music with his father and brother as part of Ronstadt Generations for many years.

With his use of harmony, instrumental arrangement, and original lyrics, along with the study of classical, traditional, and other genres Ronstadt has developed a unique style.

Ronstadt’s most recent release, Foolish Fox, is a compilation of originals and covers from a variety of genres. The combination of harmonies and musical arrangements are intricately layered leading you to discover something new about each song every time you listenMichael Gilbert Ronstadt.

There is a song on this album for every mood, and each song leads you to think about the subject matter of the lyrics. With every listen the discovery of how relatable each song is personally, to the world or life in general makes listening even more thought provoking and leaves you wanting more.

A few instrumentals add a nice variety to the song list. One of the instrumentals included is a Bill Monroe song, Jerusalem Ridge, to which Michael brings a contemporary twist with his modern arrangement.
