The band has been having a blast supporting Greensky Bluegrass all over the American West. There have been sit-ins galore each night, including Anders Beck on an RMB cover of “They Love Each Other” in Boulder as well as a full-band sit-in on Greensky's version of “Gangsta's Paradise” in Seattle. If you haven't already, check these guys out!

With a run of solo-acoustic shows around the Northeast now wrapped up, the band will be hitting a few more spots to close out February, and then it's out to the great West in support of our friends Greensky Bluegrass in March. These guys are excellent and we're super excited to finally get back out west!
We're also very excited to announce a run of shows in the midwest and northeast with ALO. If you know this band then you know why we're so excited. If you don't, then we're even more excited for you to hear them. The vibe between our band and theirs is akin to a kin and a kin! Brothers from different mothers. Peas in a pod.

The band is gearing up to hit the road again with a run out to the midwest and back, followed by some more northeast dates to close out the year. There are some incredible support acts on these shows and more are on the way. Erin McKeown will support the beginning, Jonah Smith will support the end, and we even landed a Katie Herzig in the middle! Amazing. Our band is rested up and ready to reach new heights...

Hello everyone, thank you for reading this. My new record is almost here and I am very excited for you to hear it. Recorded in New Orleans in 2011, it is a mix of originals and choice, deep covers and it is unlike any record that I have put out before. The band is George Porter Jr. on bass, Ivan Neville on keys, Anders Osborne on guitar, and Simon Lott on drums. The title is For Higher. The release date is May 15th, but you can hear it sooner than that.
I have begun a PledgeMusic campaign to allow me to properly release For Higher on my own. Pre-order downloads will be available on April 15th, one month before the album is available anywhere else. All of the funds raised will allow this music to be heard by more people, and I can't thank you enough for your help. You made this possible and you continue to do that with your listening. There are some fun incentives on the page and some exclusive content on the way.

Ryan had a blast on Jam Cruise 10 and was honored to be there as a solo performer. Highlights included singing "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover" with Galactic, "Love Rears It's Ugly Head" with Living Colour's own Corey Glover, picking tunes until dawn with Nathan Moore and Brad Barr on the starboard deck, and generally getting his mind blown by great music all around. A blog will be forthcoming...
