First Listen: Ronnie Moss of The Spinners is "Stepping"

(May 10, 2020) When Ronnie “Raheem” Moss was growing up in my hometown of Flint, Michigan, he probably never dreamed that one day he would become part of one of the biggest soul music groups of all time. But his talent as a singer and percussionist made his name grow in the region, and as a young man he landed a position in a latter day version of the legendary group The Velvetones. He then took his percussion skills to help several jazz bands, including Masterpiece and Orange Lake Drive.

Ultimately, Ronnie moved to Atlanta and joined Sol Factor, one of the region’s most popular backup bands, while also recording his solo music on the side. One of the artists who knew and respected Ronnie’s great talent was Spinners member Marvin Taylor, and when the group’s co-founder Bobby Smith died in 2013, Ronnie became a member of the legendary act, a position he still holds today.

But Ronnie also has his own music, and he is releasing a brand new album, working with producer John Carey. The lead single is a song on which a cool groove and Moss’s impressive vocal range will get the folks in Chicago, Detroit, and all of the other steppers’ cities moving. It’s called “Keep On Stepping,” and it is 100% fun.

Check out “Keep On Stepping” below and welcome Ronnie Moss to SoulTracks!
