Samantha Ronson Releases Decade In The Making Debut
Nearly a decade in the making, Chasing the Reds is an account of heartbreak, compiled journal entries, compelling headlines, and every interaction in between.
Despite what people think they know about Samantha, it should come as no surprise that the studio is a second home to her, and a music career inevitable. Samantha fondly recalls visits to the studio with stepfather Mick (Foreigner guitarist and founder), where she would find herself endlessly absorbed with the realm of possibilities the room contained. It was only a matter of time before a lifetime of being surrounded by music propelled her curiosity to try her hand at songwriting. The catalyst was a guitar her stepfather left in her care for safekeeping: "Once I picked it up, that was it. That was pretty much all I did. I started writing my own songs." In 2004, Samantha found herself with both a producer, Duncan Sheik, and a record deal with Damon Dash's Roc-a-fella Records. Inauspicious timing and the dissolution of the label led to her first album Pull My Hair Out never being released, and Ronson found herself back at the drawing board.
