Ron Pope is thrilled to announce the release of his new album, Whatever It Takes. Exploring the depths of human emotion to create something that is uniquely his own, Pope has created an unforgettable collection of anthems and ballads that are at once explosive, universal and uplifting. Whatever It Takes will be released April 12th on Pope’s own label, Hard Six Records.

Known for his engaging live performances, which have won over a tremendous amount of fans, Pope will embark on a 50+ date headlining North American tour beginning March 23rd in New York City. Tour dates below.

With an unmistakable voice, incredible songcraft and explosive blues-rock fueled guitar heroics, Pope has successfully captured and recorded an album that will appeal to a wide range of music fans. This fresh talent, purely through word of mouth, is already catching the attention of many. First single “A Drop In The Ocean” has become an online hit with over 8 million views on YouTube, 300,000 singles sold on iTunes and multiple placements on hit TV shows like “So You Think You Can Dance.”

From the carefree “Home Again,” to the confident punch of “I Believe,” from the honest beauty of “Our Song” to the yearning shimmer of “Two,” Whatever It Takes is an exciting combination of scorching guitar solos, pop melodies and timeless songwriting that creates an unforgettable album and Pope’s most affecting performance to date.
