Song of the day: Ron Coolen - Firebird

Ron Coolen is a Dutch multi-instrumentalist who released his debut album 'RISE' in March  2020.

This is his new single, "Firebird" which was composed in collaboration with singer Keith St John, and it features guest guitarist Gus G. (Firewind, and ex-Ozzy Osbourne). The current thrashy chorus meshes beautifully with the Led Zeppelin-style lines. Keith St John's outstanding performance complements the outstanding guitar work throughout the song. 

'Here to Stay' is a full-length album that includes the song. Keith St John sings on all of the tracks, and guests include CHRISTOPHER AMOTT, TIMO SOMERS, GUS G., JOEY CONCEPCION, PER NILSSON, GEORGE LYNCH, and SATCHEL.

I love all the guitars (the performance is impressive, check out the solo section around minute 3) and the production is top-notch. The vocals are very catchy and energetic and the song is quality from every point of view, with lots of different contaminations. Give it a go by clicking on the Spotify player below and remember to follow Ron Coolen on social media.
