The Prolific Ron Pope Plays Webster Hall Tomorrow NightSeptember 26th, 2014
Brooklyn’s Ron Pope is a DIY kind of guy: He plays guitar, writes, composes, records, produces and even manages his own career. The prolific musician’s been making his own brand of earnest, melodic rock since 2007. On his ninth studio album, Calling Off the Dogs (stream it below), Pope (above, performing an acoustic rendition of “Lick My Woods” on his couch) investigates some new musical terrain. It “finds the passionate singer-songwriter expanding upon his rootsy sound with a set of atmospheric, moody songs,” said AllMusic. “Recorded with a broad sonic palette that features layered, evocative guitar, delicate piano, electronic beats and, as always, Pope’s yearning vocals, Calling Off the Dogs is one of his most mature albums to date.” See him play Webster Hall tomorrow night. Brooklyn four-piece Frances Cone and Atlanta quartet Von Grey open the show.
