"Rock News: Music's high and low notes"


New York progressive rock band My Outdoor Life showcased new material from their eponymous debut album before a packed, enthusiastic crowd at Siberia in New York last weekend. The band -- Ryan Healy on guitar and vocals, Lukas Alpert on bass and Joseph Chaney on drums -- was at its best during a set that included "Song X," "More Captives in the Star Hospital," "Anger Management," "Personalize Your Weather," "The Surface," and "Kosmos Lone Astronaut." The Brooklyn-based band has built a strong following over the past year, and looks poised for a regional breakout in the coming months. - United Press International - John Swenson

Last year songwriter-singer-guitarist Ryan Healy took his band My Outdoor Life, indoors. After hibernating and contemplating a new direction for the band, he made a total re-haul: new members, new focus, even a new sound - well, a newer one at least. The result is an inspired pulse-pounding rock band, with nods to Everclear and the Smithereens. Well worth a new look and listen. - Village Voice - Andrew Aber

Feeling a bit camera shy


In 2004, songwriter Ryan Healy went into hibernation: The future of the original line-up of his band 'My Outdoor Life' was as uncertain as the musical direction that Ryan wanted the project to go in. Thus, he rented out a little run-down shack in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, turned it into writing & recording space, and proceeded to churn out some of the most imaginative and inspired music he's ever written.

When the time came to bring in some additional musical input during the recording process, Ryan called upon longtime friend Jonny Dex, bassist & electronics maestro from Vic Thrill. The VT lineup was going through a period of transition, so the time was right for Jonny to offer his low-end skills and sonic science to Ryan's new compositions.

After a few months of collaboration in the studio, it was clear that the new music that was being created was the new sound of My Outdoor Life. With a growing catalog of songs emerging, Ryan and Jonny decided it was time to get a new band together and take the material to the stage. The pair again called upon good friends to fill out the line-up: Kevin Hudson, a musician who'd been in several projects with Jonny, was brought in on drums. Sam Shaffer, also a member of Brooklyn's The Van, joined on keyboards. And Jesse Adelman, singer & guitarist for NYC's the Telephones, brings his stunning guitar styles to the mix.

Sonically, this new incarnation of My Outdoor Life builds on the band's prior indie rock innovation by tastefully mixing cutting edge electro-sonics with more focused and emotional songwriting. Having spent the past few months working out the intricacies of the band's current repertoire, this group of dynamic performers is ready to take the new sound of My Outdoor Life to the stage.
