Ronald Isley is back in the studio

 

R&B veteran Ronald Isley is fresh out of prison and headed back to the recording studio after serving a three-year sentence for tax evasion.

In a recent radio interview, the Isley Brothers member said his next album will be an “all star” effort, featuring some of today’s popular acts as well as some veteran artists.

The legendary performer also said that his time behind bars was challenging.

“(I was) talking to young people and crying with them and people that were gonna be in there some years and that part really hurts,” Isley said, according to the Web site Singers Room. “They (inmates) looked up to me.”

The singer said he was able to keep his spirits high by participating in music activities.

“I was working at the chapel and I did gospel shows every week,” he says. “That kept me up.”
