    What an ambitious young bloke Ron Pope is! The singer is thrilled to announce the release of his new album, Whatever It Takes, on April 12th via Pope's own label, Hard Six Records. It's a collection of ballads and anthems and goodness.

    Known for his engaging live performances, which have won over a tremendous amount of fans, Pope will embark on a 50-plus date headlining North American tour beginning March 23rd in New York City. Tour dates below. That's what ARTISTdirect.com calls a "road dog!" Let's hope Pope doesn't pay rent or a mortgage anywhere, since he will never see the inside of his home with this type of marathon touring.

    With an unmistakable voice, incredible songcraft and explosive blues-rock fueled guitar heroics, Pope has successfully captured and recorded an album that will appeal to a wide range of music fans. This fresh talent, purely through word of mouth, is already catching the attention of many. First single "A Drop In The Ocean" has become an online hit with over 8 million views on YouTube, 300,000 singles sold on iTunes and multiple placements on hit TV shows like So You Think You Can Dance.

    To get fans excited, Pope is offering the riveting new song "Wait For You" for free download here.
