Ronald Isley: I'm Still Doin' It

Posted: Updated:

"How many Isley Brothers were there"? That's one question Steve asked Ronald Isley Monday morning on Good Day LA. He and the other Isley Brothers gave us some truly iconic songs. Shout. Twist and Shout. This Old Heart of Mine. Steve talked to Ronald about some of those hits, his new CD "This Song is for You", and upcoming tour.

Fun facts about Ronald:

  • Isley is better known as the lead singer and founding member of the family music group the Isley Brothers.
  • He began singing at the age of three, winning a $25 war bond for singing at a spiritual contest at the Union Baptist Church. By the age of seven, Ronald was singing on-stage at venues such as the Regal Theater in Chicago, alongside Dinah Washington and a few other notables.
  • By his early teens, he was singing regularly with his brothers in church tours and also first appeared on TV on Ted Mack's Amateur Hour. In 1957, sixteen-year-old Ronald and his two elder brothers Kelly, 19 and Rudy, 18, moved to New York, recording doo-wop for local labels before landing a major deal with RCA Records in 1959, where the trio wrote and released their anthemic "Shout."
  • In 2010, Isley received a "Legend Award," surveying Isley Brother music written largely by the younger brothers, at the Soul Train Music Awards.
  • In 2013, Ronald released his second solo album This Song Is For You sign labels eOne. The album includes the first single "Dinner and A Movie".
