Ryan Star - The America EP

Ryan Star - The America EP

Reviewer :
Johan Wippsson Format: Ep
Year: 2012
Label: Independent
Genre: Modern Rock
Producer: Ryan Star
Artist discography


Ryan Stars "11:59" is one of the Modern Rock's best records ever released. With a completely unique sound and immensely strong songs the albums has it all in my opinion, one of the few in my collection. This new Ep, which he very generously gave away for free, follow the same path as his debut with high-quality rock. Feels maybe a bit of leftovers in Ryan Star standards, but it's actually almost as good and would not be surprised if a couple showed up at the next record.

"America Ep" feels stylistically a bit more dramatic and emotional than "11:59”, a bit like his " Songs from the Eye of an Elephant”, but in a produced format. What fascinate me most there is his cool arrangements and cool melodies. The songs start in a common format, but transitions to new and exciting place. Very smart and very exciting to listen too! Free music can’t be much better than this!

Did you know that?

Myles Kennedy was in a band called ´Citizen Swing´ from Spokane, Washington. The band released two albums, Cure Me With the Groove and Deep Down, before disbanding in 1996. ´Cure Me With the Groove´ was a jazz-influenced pop album best described as Stevie Wonder meets Stevie Ray Vaughn, while Deep Down was a much heavier album, dropping all of the pop pretense in favor of heavy guitars, soaring vocals, solid and infectious beats and a bit of the ´jazz flair´ of the trumpet. Vocalist and lead guitarist Myles Kennedy, formerly of Cosmic Dust, eventually went on to front The Mayfield Four and later Alter Bridge.
