So, I’ve got the first track of a five song EP posted for you at www.ryantmusic.com. I’d like to tell you a little bit about it.
I was playing around with The Beatles “A Day in the Life” and strumming the C chord when this song happened. I like it when songs just happen, and that’s most often how I compose – by chance, rather than by design. Naturally, songs grow and develop over a period of time, but I try to let the core of a song just be.
My lyrics here are influenced by recent events in life, and I think they can apply to many situations. Whether you’re moving out of your parents house, off to college, quitting your job, or just stepping to a new stage in your life, the words can fit the experiences of many, not just myself.
This is the first song recorded with a new version of recording software. I’ve used the same recording program since 2003 for song demos, so there are bound to be some issues as I work with new technology.
The next round of songs I upload to the web represent the second drafts of songs for an eventual EP release. Please listen, share and tell me what you think!
