The best kept secret in music


"Things You Need To Know"

Things You Need To Know is a great CD. The group has a pleasingly mellow, but distinct alternative sound to them. What’s most impressive is how they achieved such a full sound.
I have always maintained that lyrics are a huge factor in the sound of any given group. You can have the most talented musicians and singers in the world working on one album, but if that engaging lyrical element is missing, the collective talent is shot on clumsy verses and run-of-the-mill choruses. Ryan wrote all of the songs on the CD, and the lyrics are a brilliant mix of intelligence and creativity. They have a truly poetic flow to them, but sustain strong and admirable messages at the same time. If you enjoy music from groups like Lifehouse and Our Lady Peace, this happens to be a perfect mix of the two. (To equate any artist with another may sometimes be viewed as a dismissal of originality, so know that I use this comparison only to give you a better idea of the group’s sound.) I think the CD has the potential to capture people with all tastes and from all walks of life. This, friend, is GOOD STUFF.

"Music for the Forces"

Ryan Frisinger and his band reach far beyond Zion Missionary Church, where Frisinger serves as worship leader on Sundays. He released his first CD, "Things You Need To Know," last year and tours the tri-state area's music circuit. The band hopes to reach even farther with its second CD, "Two Lovers." The cd is being recorded at The Gaither Studios in Alexandria, Indiana. Frisinger is co-producing with Ben Westfall. On August 5, Ryan will be featured at the Anchor Room in Fort Wayne. - Amy Oberlin - KPC News

Feeling a bit camera shy


These days, Ryan Frisinger is keeping himself busy. With the release of his new album,
Two Lovers, he spends his nights playing shows in support of the new material
throughout the tri-state music scene, and his days leading worship services at a local
church in Northeast Indiana. Performing in various Midwestern venues since the age of
16, Frisinger has decided to go back to his roots with the acoustic, more “folksy” brand of
music for the new release. Recorded at the famed Gaither Studios in Alexandria, Indiana,
and co-produced by Ben Westfall, the ten new tracks of Two Lovers tend towards a new
direction, miles from the alternative-pop vibe of his full band debut release Bledsoe’s
Things You Need To Know. “Two Lovers is more of a story, a spiritual journey," says
Frisinger of his latest effort. "It's really a correspondence - ten letters from ten different
places in the soul - a love dialogue between the Maker and his most precious creation," he
adds. Besides continually providing honest music to his listeners, Frisinger has also
started a non-profit organization this past year known as "Project Gabriel." He and a
church body in the Western United States have partnered together to provide his music, as
well as other spiritual publications, to the military service men and women overseas
during the holiday season. So, look for the new release to not only fill the coffeehouses
and airwaves of college radio stations throughout the Midwest, but also to touch some
hearts and lives around the world. Frisinger says it best when he explains the purpose of
Two Lovers - "These ten songs are personal letters to my Lover. I hope when people listen
though, they'll be able to offer these songs as their own letters and begin to receive their
own answers. This isn't my album, my name's on it...but Who it's to is much more
important than who it's from."
