It is refreshing to hear music void of the cluttered phrases typical of the culture and thick with timeless truths. His songs deal with the human condition and is best conveyed through his own point of view. Ryan's music communicates and connects with the listener because of the narrative nature of his songs. Turn Me Over is an honest "take it or leave it" audio journal that leaves the listener satisfied. One might find himself playing it over and over again to dig deeper and find something different that tells another chapter they may have missed the first time. - Billy Hollis - Designer


Ryan Vaughn pilots ten songs in this, his debut solo project, to communicate a pattern of sincere and cyclical hope and despair. Melodies display influences ranging from traditional folk tunes to modern alternative rock. And while each of the tracks may have at least one thing in common (each is easy to listen to), the musical terrain covered in the album creates an aesthetically pleasing array of textures for the listener to enjoy.

"We utilized all kinds of people for this project," Vaughn said when asked about the recording process. "It was a challenge to communicate what I wanted to hear from each musician, being that we all had such different musical backgrounds and tastes."

But Vaughn says that a veteran steel guitarist and a gospel choir will sound amazingly well together if given the chance to work out some of their differences. Vaughn recorded the tracks in College Station, Texas at a studio run cooperatively by Ross King and Keith Sewell and currently resides in his hometown, Austin, Texas, where he is finding his way amidst a vibrant and richly talented musical community. - IndependentBands.com

Bio

We're from Austin. Our band is a band in the traditional sense, a kind of family.

We love good music, old and new, hip-hop to Hank. There's a detectable tinge of gospel and blues in most of our songs, at least in spirit. Neil and his Horse are often in our cd players or iPod playlists. We are charged up for nights on the town by such epileptic guitar work. We also love and have been influenced by Jay Farrar, Jeff Tweedy, Richard Buckner, and Ryan Adams.

Ryan's latest album was recorded without the band during a 2 year stint in Bryan, Texas. Turn Me Over, consists of 10 tracks some of which are available for listening in the media section of our kit.
