Ryan's most recent solo release, "Pain and Time" is a selection of tracks from four “living room” sessions during the winter of 2012. All of the music on this project was recorded live. There were no click tracks , no overdubs, and very little editing. It is a minimalist recording.
Some of these songs have been with Ryan so long that he does’t even remember learning them, some he's recently penned, and the rest fall somewhere in between. Ryan has included some traditional chestnuts, some originals, and a couple of others.
