Behind The Music | Simple Guitar Grooves

Simple Guitar Rhythms Production Music

Simple Guitar Grooves [EVO304] is a guitar-based underscore project of 12 rhythmic songs with groove in their soul from long time FirstCom Music composer Ron Kristy.

Ron says:

“An eclectic, unique mix of scores for TV/Film and promo appeal. I had a blast combining acoustic and electric guitar riffs and melodies, some modern sounding beats and loops, and even some classic Motown feels & fills. A creative dream come true!”

Find out more about Ron Kristy:

Ron Kristy has been a composer for Universal Production Music for over 20 years. He has composed many genres of music, from deep trailer/sports/action projects to the more recent “fun, upbeat, guitar-based” music projects, which he is enjoying immensely! 

A former staff writer/producer for Chappell Music in NY, (writing down the hall from 2 guys named Hall and Oates), Ron was co-writer of Aretha Franklin’s Coca-Cola spots and Brook Benton’s “If You’ve Got the Time” Miller Beer spots, among many others. Later, while on vacation in Mexico, Ron was asked to compose a commercial for Bacardi Rum, which led to his co-founding the largest music production company in Mexico, Musicastil.  After returning to the States, he has continued as one of Nashville’s and New York’s most prolific composers for TV/Films for over 30 years, composing and performing many hundreds of jingles, commercials and TV/film scores.

Apart from his composing projects with Universal and custom scoring projects, Ron also performs with his wife and musical partner Terry Burns as the duo Burns and Kristy. They were awarded two First Place “Posi Music Awards” in April 2019 for music that has a “positive effect on the world”.  In his personal life, Ron has studied many years of martial arts and meditation, and visited and taught music for many years at Riverbend Max prison in Nashville.  Most importantly, his 14 year old son Noah has awarded him the “Best Dad of the Year” award 14 years in a row.  All other awards pale in comparison.
