Ronnie Heart is the moniker of stylish latin-american R&B/Funk Singer Songwriter and guitarist Ronnie Gierhart. Heart’s love affair with music and dance started early on through his El Salvadorian/Colombian parents and breakdancing at youth centers and dance companies in his south Houston neighborhood. Upon moving to North Texas in 2002, Heart played guitar for a number of north Texas bands, most notably Neon Indian and VEGA. Heart left Neon Indian in 2011 to pursue a solo career. Inspired by artists such as MJ, Prince, and Stevie Wonder, Heart makes music that brings an emphatically positive dance party. Ronnie Heart is releasing his debut EP you( r ) mine in April 2016. It incorporates R&B, funk, and electronic styles. His positive and high energy shows are always a joyous vibrant experience.
“From the first beat, the crowd was dancing, and so was Heart. Heart is an effective guitarist and vocalist — but showmanship is his wheelhouse.” - Steve Watkins, DFW.com
