I am reaching out to fellow music lovers to join me in the manufacture of a vinyl record, and a documentary of the grass roots community behind this venture!
With DIY gusto coursing through my veins, my one-man-band archetype has grown to encompass the processes of an entire record label. My recent recordings have a new found clarity and unpretentious voice, resonating from the seat of a consciousness connecting us all. I would like to share this empowering body of work in a meaningful and intimate way!
I want to offer the listener a truly sincere experience, something to inspire them to reach out into our amazing world, merging with it's wondrous possibilities, rather than point and click to an automated dispensing of the $0.99 fare of the day! You can help to make my music an experience beyond our everyday humdrum and contribute to the sensual pastime of playing a VINYL Record of sublime integrity... an artistic integrity enriched by the grass roots nature of it's creation, i.e. the support of YOU!
Please visit the Updates section to learn more about the album & listen to songs, as they're completed! Also check out my MySpace Page and become a fan of this project on Facebook! Ryan Hanna's VINYL Project on Facebook
As I've done before, I plan on paying for the duplication of this album. However Vinyl requires the specialized process of making a stamper (quite an art itself.) With your help in reaching our goal of $600, we will create a work of art borne of self empowerment, holistic artistry & cutting edge grass roots industriousness for all to enjoy! And perhaps, a classic piece of music?!
So go ahead and take part in what I believe to be a pivotal journey, the rewards of which transcend the humble thanks I offer your bold generosity.
