I actually met Thomas Ronkin, around the time his 2nd album came out. He was traveling through Portland for work -- he actually worked for the government as a translator.
The last I heard that's what he was/is doing. He and his family moved to Washington DC and is working full time as a government translator. For a while he was working a lot with Colin Powell until he got the boot, I actually saw him on TV a couple of times in the background. He travels a lot working with various heads of state from various nations. I understand he has a little studio in a briefcase he takes with him on his travels that he sets up in his hotel room and works on music. I would not be surprised if we hear more from Thomas in a few years.
