(HHBTM Records) Ryan has bits of Jeff Buckley and Elliot Smith in his style along with a basic folk punk sensibility. The music is fairly basic acoustic guitar led folk with a bit of percussion accompaniment with very dark vocals. The first track “Railroad Killer Stomp” is my least favorite of the batch, not because of the subject matter but because of the forced sounding lyrics. I think Ryan has a way to go before he reaches the status of somebody like Elliot Smith, but I think he is well on his way and has the talent to get him there. Here’s to dark folk punk music…it’s my second favorite type of folk after gothic folk ala Lauren Hoffman.
