THE STORY:

Christmas 1999 I received a drum kit for my 13th birthday. I'm now 30 and haven't stopped beating away at music in seventeen years. I've found that most music that drives me from a listeners viewpoint has very prominent vocal delivery as well as lyrics and that's what I've geared this album towards, driving melodies that support vocal delivery/lyrics. If this is something you enjoy than this album is definitely for you.

MUSIC: 

It was always there, an underlying and HUGE part of my life that is often borderline obsessive.  Finding that "band" that makes you completely fall in love with why YOU loved music from the get go is an overwhelming thing and I am confident I've accomplished just that. Songwriting is my obsession and I fall in love with music time and again with every song I write. Some are good, some are shit, that's the beauty of music and songwriting in general. 

THE ALBUM:

The album was recorded from December 2016 to May 2017 at Wilderness Recording Studio in Pittsburgh, PA and co-produced as well as mixed by J Vega of the same. All songs, arrangements and instruments written and performed by Ryan Solomon. Additional as follows:

J Vega - Producer, mixing, guitar, keyboards, bass, whistles

Rylie Solomon - Vocals

Ryan Hoffman - Electric Guitar, vocals

Risks and challenges

There is 0 risk. I am completing this album with or without backing. I do hope (my wife and kids hope) that I will receive some funding with this (I cant call it a project) dream so that I can make it as bad ass as humanly possible.
