The All-About

Don Ryan

"...the dark circus that Don Ryan brings to life is nothing short of vibrant. In a word: dazzling." --The Aquarian Weekly

"Don Ryan is the real deal...This is a brand new take on old music, and this young man owns it. Don Ryan's music blew me away." --Ear To The Ground

"...the next artist ready to carry the torch of Tom Waits to a new generation." --HearHearMusic.com

"Don Ryan takes his musical materials and wrenches them into the shape that best expresses his intentions, with scant regard for precedent or convention. Witty, disturbing lyrics...Excellent stuff." --LiveUnsigned.com

"...all-around musical badass." --Warren Riker, producer (Michael Jackson, Aretha Franklin, Sublime)

"...multi-influenced music mixed together by a mad scientist." --FBFY Monthly Mixtape

"His sound is a throwback to an earlier, simpler time and his live performances are an exercise in fretboard mastery. Ryan commands his guitar with such an ease and nonchalance that it is easy to miss just how clever and crafty his songwriting chops are." --Jimmy Lloyd, television host (Jimmy Lloyd Songwriter Showcase, NBC)

"Definitely worth a listen or 10, check him out." --INDMUSIC

"an alluring collection of electrified Folk-Rock that still gets regular play in my Itunes library." --Speak Into My Good Eye

"Ryan never lets us quite hear what we expect...an artist of rare originality." --Oliver di Place blog

"...a fresh and interesting perspective on some old styles of music!" --Indie Rebellion

"...one versatile artist with a wide array of influences and styles he is playing around with like a kid in a candy shop." --Listen Before You Buy

"This is the real thing. Don Ryan is different. This is real music. This is real good music." --A Perfect Mess

Nate Wood

Toby Singer

Toby Singer started writing songs on lazy, late-summer days spent on the banks of Lake Michigan. In music school he wrote delicate, acoustic-guitar songs like one of his favorite singers Elliott Smith, complete with self-conscious vocal double tracking--when he was supposed to be studying European art songs. In Charleston, South Carolina, Toby moved into a dilapidated shack of a house downtown that he shared with drug-addled but lovable chefs. When he lived on the beach, he built a studio in the garage, sharing the creative space with cockroaches and sand. Several years later, living in Brooklyn, during a hiatus from the melancholic falsetto of his afro-pop band Go Go Ghost, he returned to the guitar and the quiet, hushed vocals of those summers on Lake Michigan.
