Shows Coming Up in Missouri, Texas and Oklahoma! 

Friends and Listeners, 

Make plans and help spread the word!

This Saturday I’m playing a special solo show in Columbia, MO. The details are at matthewryanonline.com/tour 

Then a little over a week later Doug Lancio and I are doing a string of duo dates through Texas (and even one in Durant, OK!). I’m putting together a very special show for both these events. I’ve been experimenting with some sounds and atmospheres. Trying to find my inner Van Morrison meets “Tom Eno”. Yes... Waits meets Eno. 

Sometimes you gotta challenge yourself so you feel that lightning. Then it’s worth sharing. Don’t worry, the songs are still the songs. I’ll be drawing from all the records and probably sneak a cover in here and there. Above all, my hope is to bring some cool weather into every room we visit with... I’m excited about this. This is the first time Doug and I have done some duo shows together.

Makes plans and help us spread the word! 

PS

Poster design by Joe Maiocco and thank you to Red11 Music for working so hard to put this together. And of course, thank you to the rooms and humans for having us!

These will be announced very soon. Please keep an eye out. I love playing for you guys and you know, I'll get to extend summer a little coming through your part of the world.

Alright. See you guys soon!
