Ron began his career as a singer/songwriter in his home province of Newfoundland in the early seventies plying the coffeehouse circuit through the Maritimes and Ontario. While on a theatre tour with the Mummers Troupe in 1976 he composed a song called Sonny's Dream that would go on to become a folk classic recorded by dozens of artists worldwide. In 2004 Sinnott Productions released a limited edition archival print titled Sonny's Dream in honour of the song which is acknowledged as the "unofficial anthem" of Newfoundland.
