Ronnie Atkins, real name Paul Christensen, is a Danish singer, songwriter and musician. Born on December 13, 1964 in Vejle, Denmark, Atkins is best known as the lead singer of the hard rock band Pretty Maids.

From an early age, Ronnie Atkins had a passion for music. He began singing and playing guitar in his teens. In the early 1980s, Atkins formed the band Pretty Maids with guitarist Ken Hammer. Together, they created original music blending elements of hard rock, heavy metal and glam metal.

In 1983, Pretty Maids released their first album, entitled "Red, Hot and Heavy", to immediate success in Europe. Atkins quickly made a name for himself with his powerful, expressive voice and introspective lyrics. Over the years, the band released several critically acclaimed albums, including "Future World" (1987), "Jump the Gun" (1990) and "Pandemonium" (2010).

Beyond his career with Pretty Maids, Ronnie Atkins has also collaborated with other renowned artists and musicians. He recorded solo albums, such as "Sonic Origami" (2000), and took part in projects such as Nordic Union, with Swedish guitarist Erik Martensson.

Sadly, in 2020, Ronnie Atkins was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. Despite this ordeal, he continued to fight on, releasing solo opuses including "Trinity" in 2023, his last album to date.
