R. Ring have been nominated as “New Artist of the Year” via the Cincinnati Entertainment Awards. While front-woman Kelley Deal resides in Dayton, OH, front-man Mike Montgomery is a resident of nearby Dayton, KY (Greater Cincinnati area). The proximity of Mike’s locale puts them in the running. Do check out this amusing interview with R. Ring via Cincinnati’s City Beat rag.
CB: Kelley, I’m curious about your vocal approach, which is marked by this girlish, slightly affected croon that has become your trademark. How did you come to this way of singing?
KD: Gross. I have an image of Bette Davis in What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? in my mind!
Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day to all! Above is the “I Have A Dream” speech in full. Not to proselytize, but watching this is infinitely more important than some TV show or sporting event or this week’s new music release or whatever.
Also, below is a picture of Misra artists R. Ring and The Black Swans at MLK’s house. It was taken on a tour they took together in 2012.

R. Ring’s Kelley Deal recently did an interview with 91.9 WFPK in Louisville, KY. Interviewer Sean Cannon remarks: “This was easily the most hilarious and off-the-rails in-studio I’ve ever had.” Check it out and stay tuned for more news on R. Ring soon!
R. Ring recently received a phenomenal feature via Under the Radar. Thanks so much to Frank Valish and UTR for the support!
“And one should not wait on R. Ring. Despite its members acknowledging the wait-and-see dynamic to the project, R. Ring seems to pick up steam with each successive small release… As a pair, the two tracks represent distinct sides of R. Ring, both superbly played and terrifically engaging.”

Ring’s Kelley Deal will join the reunited Last Splash-era Breeders to celebrate 4AD’s deluxe reissue of this wonderful album.
