The Dan Ryan
With a deep reverence for all things Grateful Dead, the indie alt band The Dan Ryan is not afraid to allow their songs to open and evolve in their own time while also holding on to the folk tradition of Texas natives like Townes Van Zandt, whose picking style and strong narratives sits as the base coat to each of their beautifully painted tracks. Recorded in Austin by engineer and musician Lucas Oswald and mixed at National Freedom by Richard Swift, The Dan Ryan continue to create with an arsenal of auditory color. With more breathing room in Nathan Dixey’s vocal performances, one is not just taken to the green pastures of magical euphoria but given the opportunity to feel the blades of grass underfoot and taste the orchestrated air.
