RONI– “Don’t Look At Me Like That”
After moving to New York City in 2010 from her native Jerusalem, singer, songwriter, and guitarist RONI has been recording music ever since, both under her current moniker and as Rony’s Insomnia. Her newest single “Don’t Look At Me Like That” is a dramatic, dynamic soulful song with a bluesy feel and soaring vocals. The drums hit a particularly satisfying groove behind the layered guitar solos.

Of this track, RONI says “To me, after spending most of my life in male dominated fields and environments, being made to feel, or sometimes told, that I am not as capable or capable at all, ‘Don’t Look At Me Like That’ is the ultimate self empowering song, as well as an answer to toxic patriarchal stares.” The video was edited by RONI using footage from various live performances, with graphics by Toby Verhines and we have your exclusive first look here on FTA!
RONI will be touring in April this year along with her live band, which features Tom Shani on bass and Pat DiPaolaon drums.
