An adept multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, and composer, Michael G. Ronstadt has been captivating audiences throughout North America for nearly two decades. A master at his craft, Ronstadt traverses a mélange of musical styles that range anywhere from folk, jazz, classical, and Americana to the wildly ethereal. He lends his talents to a broad range of projects, including solo work and a variety of small ensembles, as well as larger bands. Primarily known for his prowess as a cellist, Michael G. has contributed his cello to hundreds of recordings from accomplished artists around the world, including Craig Bickhardt, Ezra Vancil, Amber Norgaard, and Zoe Mulford. Ronstadt has also premiered several classical compositions on behalf of composers like Norway’s Bjørn Bolstad Skjelbred, as well as United States composers Conrad Kehn, Kenneth D. Stewart, and Michael Ippolito. He has recorded over two dozen albums under his own name and in collaboration with his brother, Petie Ronstadt, in the Ronstadt Brothers (formerly Ronstadt Generations with his father Michael J. Ronstadt). Also of note is his work with Ohio’s Serenity Fisher and the Cardboard Hearts, and as one half of the Aaron Nathans & Michael G. Ronstadt avant-folk duo.
