The band is ME - plus any collaborators I can convince to come along for the ride. I love the process of song writing and production - I hope some others get some enjoyments - or chuckles out of these tunes.
Why this name?
Some have suggested RT because the band isn't really hot or even COOL, but just sort of "room temperature", but I still maintain it stands for my initials: Ron Tintner.
Do you play live?
I do an occasional open mikes and play at hospitals, retirement homes, etc. with acoustic guitar, ukulele or keyboards - very different from my "produced" songs.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
The wonders and nightmares of true democracy.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
You're asking the wrong party to the contract.
