He is currently touring to promote his new release “Uptown!” a rocking blues album that is heavily influenced by his musical heroes T-Bone Walker and Johnny “Guitar” Watson and fuses elements of Blues, Jazz, Funk and R&B in an exciting mix.

In 2009 Ramon travelled to Dakar to discover the birthplace of the blues and expand his musical horizons. There he played with the finest West African musicians culminating in the 2010 release of the CD “Mansana Blues” (Dixiefrog Records), a collaboration with kora player and Senegalese griot, Diabel Cissokho, that combines blues and

African music in what one reviewer has described as the World Music CD of the decade.

He produced, co-wrote and played on the ground - breaking “Drew, Mississippi” (Black and Tan Records) with delta blues artist Boo Boo Davis (voted in the top 10 Blues albums of 2006 by MOJO magazine). Ramon formed the seminal blues/hip hop group Nublues which released two acclaimed albums: “Dreams Of A Blues Man” & “Snow On The Tracks” (Dixiefrog/21st Century Records) .

As one of the most versatile Blues guitarists of his generation he has worked with Chris Thomas King, the multi - Grammy Award winning Bluesman and actor (“Oh Brother Where Art Thou”), and has toured with luminaries such as Pee Wee Ellis (James Brown's band leader) and multi-talented singer-songwriter Eric Bibb. “they succeed admirably in beating Moby at his own game” The Observer “this really is a new direction” MOJO“fresh and right up-to-date”
