Ronnie Collins grew up in the small Louisiana town of Welsh where he first picked up his first guitar at the age of 12 that was his mothers. She found it to painful for her fingers, but he never knew at this time that this would be that beginning of talent leading to what would become a great singer/song writer career. He played in small bands and local festivals around the area and had already started writing his own music through out his years growing up.
Ronnie moved to Dallas to attend the Art Institute Of Dallas and in 1989 graduated with and associate degree in Visual Communications. He was able to work in many areas including silk screening, advertising agencies, and at a local television station in Lake Charles.
In 1991 Ronnie decide to follow the passion of art so after living in Austin for a year, he moved just outside to a small town call Dripping Springs so he could paint. Besides music, Ronnie’s other passion was painting, so he made his mind up he had to enjoy his work.
Ronnie always liked painting but he also loved music and when friends from Austin asked him if he would consider recording an album he said without a doubt “Of course I would!”. Ronnie was then signed to Onion Creek Records and recorded his first album “Time For Changes” in 1993. The video Town Of Fewer People was later released, a song from the title release.
Ronnie loved singing, but also loved painting and so he eventually moved back to Louisiana where he continues to paint murals, portraits, and wonderful paintings. He also teaches classes and encourages the arts to many students. Ronnie has been able to paint all over the world including Europe and Mexico. He still sings for festivals benefits and other shows. Ronnie is still writing music and is currently back in the studio working on his second album to be released sometime this year.
