    (August 14, 2019) A few years ago, Portland, Oregon moved to the front of the class for emerging soul music cities, with the fantastic multi-artist album, Bespeak Love. Musician and singer Ronnie Wright was a driving force behind the album, which we honored in our end of year awards.

    Ronnie followed it up last year with the excellent album a.k.a. Bespeakand now returns again with a brand new single that reminds us that Portland’s scene is still hopping.

    Ronnie followed it up last year with the excellent album a.k.a. Bespeakand now returns again with a brand new single that reminds us that Portland’s scene is still hopping.

    “All I Really Need is You” has elements of soul, blues and rock, with organ and electric guitar providing a muscular backdrop to an appealing midtempo number. Ronnie tells us “’All I Need is You’ is my Rock/Soul Anthem of true love. A call and response that sparks us to lean on each other and inspire a deeper connection. For without love this world does not exist…”

    We’re glad to welcome Ronnie back to SoulTracks. Check out “All I Need Is You” below and tell us what you think!
