Ronald Jenkees

Ronald Jenkees

Ronald Jenkees became a YouTube sensation about 5 years ago. He has a quirky yet lovable & humble personality, which shines through his videos. He claims to be a self-taught musician, which isn’t to surprising if you watch him play. Doesn’t look like a typical pianist. Some think he is autistic, and his mannerisms may support that claim, but he himself has officially stated otherwise. There’s a bit of a controversy surrounding him. Nobody has found any record of a real-life Ronald Jenkee’s, but some people have claimed to know him in school and say that he has a strong background in musical studies and the YouTube persona we see is just an act. Whether he’s putting on a show or legitmately super geeky doesn’t matter to me. The music he writes I find pretty incredible, which is why he is one of my all time favorites. Unfortunately he uploaded most of his music before YouTube had HD, so the sound quality was pretty bad. Below, the first video I’ll post is one of his classics, so you can see his playing style. After that I’ll post HD song uploads of his.
