Her stepfather's a jukebox hero — as in Foreigner's Mick Jones — and her brother's a star DJ — that'd be Mark Ronson — so for Samantha Ronson to get a word in at the dinner table, she had to know her tunes. It wasn’t until Ronson was 20 that she discovered her music talents.
Ronson grew up around music — going on tour with Foreigner for family vacations and cutting class at her stepfather's studio — but she was never interested in playing. Then, after spending a year in Paris after high school, she returned to New York and realized she had nothing to listen to. Ronson taught herself to play and sing and eventually put her poetry to the music. She was still a closet performer, though, when a different sort of music opportunity knocked.
