Seeds Of Possible
Ron Renninger, a veteran performer of the East Coast acoustic music scene is proud to release his 8th album of original material: “Seeds of Possible”.
Buoyed by the widespread acclaim of his 2016 release “The Man Who Became A Song”,
Ron and his co-producer Phil Miller felt motivated to immediately begin work on this new project and the results truly exceeded our expectations.
Several of the songs on “Seeds of Possible” utilize a fuller production and more instrumentation than the last effort and as a result they come to life in a way impossible with basic guitar and voice arrangements.
Although a few of the songs on “Seeds of Possible” have appeared in one form or another on previous recordings, I feel the renditions here are the “definitive” ones.
All in all, I can honestly say I’m exceedingly proud of this recording and my sincere hope is that your moved by what you hear.

“THE LIGHT FROM THE MOON” (5:23) Combining my love of astronomy with my love of rejection, this toe tapping Blues-tinged romp features dobro, harmonica and a Hammond organ.
“SHADOW OF DOUBT” (4:27) Channeling my inner Cole Porter, this love ballad would have been right at home in a smoke filled 1940’s jazz club.
“THE RIVER OF LIFE” (2:57) The last few years of my life have been characterized by increased spiritual interests and practices. This simple guitar and voice tune reflects this evolving journey.
“NO MATTER HOW BIG YOU ARE” (5:06) This tune with it’s gospel leaning chorus also has a spiritual message. The lyrics attempt to put into a larger context our mortal questions and fears.
“MOHEGAN LAKE” (inst.) (2:17) Inspired by a day at this beautiful lake in Upstate NY.
“EVEN THE STURDIEST OF TREES” (4:10) Inspired by my relationship with my father, this song explores the issue of personal redemption.
“DAMN OLD TRAIN” (3:33) I got the motivation to write this Bluegrass song while waiting for a mile long freight train to go by in St Augustine, FL last winter.
“MY HEART IN YOUR HANDS” (2:10) A love song written with no one in mind. (I figure this way I have something ready…)
“MINETTA LANE” (inst.) (2:06) This instrumental piece was inspired by the fond memories of this quaint little cobblestone street in downtown Manhattan when I used to live across the way.
“MOMENTS LIKE THESE” (3:33) I believe that the things that make life worthwhile come down to a handful of singular moments in our lives. This song is about the ones in mine.
“HEART OF THE CITY” (3:08) This song is sort of a musical snapshot of a typical summer Greenwich Village day, circa late 1960’s.
“I ALWAYS COME BACK” (3:14) Written while in the clutches of a rather dead-end relationship many years ago.
“BLACKTOP BOLERO” (inst.) (2:23) This little ditty came out at a rest stop while on a multi-week tour.
“A LITTLE BIT OF PEACE” (On Earth) (5:40) This was composed one Christmas eve after reflecting on the what the meaning of the phrase “peace on earth” has for me.
