"The Buzz on:The Heaven Switch"

"The music of The Heaven Switch is all about getting down to earth. L.A. songwriter Ryan Calhoun's pop-rock project offers electric guitars, Ahab-size hooks and a whole lot of heart: "Don't care that you're messy," he sings in "Trainwreck." (Dude clearly hasn't seen our desk.) But he seems like a sweetheart: Chances are The Heaven Switch has already pushed your buttons: Calhoun's songs have been in "One Tree Hill," "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," "Real World" and "Real Talk, Every Other Show You Watch." (We may have made that last one up.) His melodic sound touches on the upbeat anthems of vintage Matchbox Twenty and Plain White T's, with whom he shares producer Bill Lefler -– as well as Mike Green, who’s worked with Beyoncé and Paramore. Calhoun shows his softer side, too, going acoustic for mid-album future chart-toppers "Fault Lines" and "Someday." "

"The Heaven Switch"

"The Heaven Switch consists of singer-songwriter Ryan Calhoun. He has worked with producers such as Bill Lefler (Plain White T’, Gym Class Heroes), Mike Green (Beyoncé, Paramore), and Dallas Kruse. He had five songs reach the Top 10 placement on the iTunes singer-songwriter chart and the album “Everything That I’m Not” reached #3 with 30,000 singles sold. Not bad for a self release." - Kings of A&R
