"Review of Ubiquitous"

College freshman Ryan Buck has taken a bold step in releasing his first album of original songs, with a title that is a mouthful. They showcase Ryan Buck’s potential as a singer/songwriter and performer—and a couple of them are true gems.

There are two pieces on the album that are outstanding and show the remarkable potential of this Buck. “October Morning,” a tune written in reaction to the brutal slaying of Matthew Shepard, has intelligent, sensitive lyrics, and his vocals are enhanced by his guitar and piano work and by Joy Zimmerman’s lyrical violin. It is a moving, well-produced track. Equally strong is the solo piano tune “Open Mind.” It is a moody jazz piece with interesting textures that are pure genius. Those two tracks alone are worth buying the album and putting on a permanent loop in an iPod.

It will be interesting to see what the future holds for this young artist. - Review by Janie Franz

Ryan has recently added songwriting to his lifelong musical pursuits and in his first CD, Ubiquitous, he presents a collection of original songs that cover the span of life's experiences.

Ryan has been involved in music all of his life starting with classic piano instruction when he was 6 years old. His interests led him to the guitar and drums, high school musical groups and a Kansas City wide high school choir.

Ryan stands out at the acoustic guitar, the piano, the electric guitar and the drums on this album. He did actually have to turn to a couple of friends to provide bass and violin support. Drawing from a very diverse group of musical influences, Ryan's music could perhaps be described as light rock, acoustic or singer/songwriter. Ubiquitous is an album full of the complexities and joys of life and is titled based on Ryan's diverse invovement on the CD from composing the lyrics and music to singing and playing several instrument tracks on each song.

Ryan is currently a Music Composition Major at Dickinson College.
