Ryan Monroe

Ryan Monroe - multi-instrumentalist for Band Of Horses - will release his new album A Painting Of A Painting On Fire - next Tuesday, June 12th. To get fans excited, Paste Magazine is currently streaming this exciting 11-song collection (link below).

Early raves include Relix Magazine who says Ryan "emerges as a gifted songwriter and when you learn that he played every note from every instrument, it becomes clear that he's a brilliant musician with vast influences. First song 'Doritoys' comes on big and fuzzy like a lost Black Keys track before the chorus throws us back to Ziggy Stardust territory, 'Turning Over Leaves' is a smooth pop-rock nugget, the title cut is a full-blown '70 rock opera epic, 'Blame The Daylight' has a Neil Young country-rock vibe and 'Any Way, Shape Or Deformity' swings like ELO. That all of it fits together and none of it sounds anything like Band of Horses makes this all the more impressive."

Magnet Magazine adds "In its finished form, A Painting is a thoughtful, impressively executed, alternately goofy and sinister song cycle. Any of its more excessive tendencies are largely tempered by a toasty, soulful Southern California glow. At times, it's uncanny how much Monroe sounds like Joe Walsh - pickled disposition and all - in his '70s-era prime."

A Painting Of A Painting On Fire not only sees Ryan fearlessly exploring musical territories and influences, but also showcases Ryan's talent as both a musician and songwriter for pop-oriented progressive rock. Recorded at Redstar Studios in Silver Lake CA with Grammy award-winning producer Chris Testa, Ryan plays every instrument on this cohesive album that seamlessly flows from elaborate pop rockers to complex but melodic ballads. The end result is an accessible and colorful listen for fans.

On June 26th, Ryan will visit the Daytrotter studios in Illinois for a special performance. Visit daytrotter.com on the 26th to hear Ryan as he records this session.
