Are you looking for some well written folk-rock with elements of country mixed in? If so, then check out Ry Moran: a Canadian singer-songwriter who performs songs that are reminiscent of Neil Young and Amie Street's own, Griffin House. Once you take a listen to Dreams of Grey , you'll surely agree with Dorsey, who REC'd the song saying, "this guy is terrific...every song is great. Give it a listen: excellent beat, close harmonies, just plain excellent music. His voice is rich and full......as good as it gets." - Amie Street


I own this album myself. I must say it is amazing. It's a must in anyone's collection. No matter what taste you have in music you will enjoy this. Listen to the lyrics and feel the beat and you'll see what I mean. I definitely reccomend this Canadian artist.

This recording hit me like a ton of bricks. Ry Moran is definitely a singer songwriter well versed in the fine art of Canadian song-smithing. His music pays tribute to his influences, yet he clearly stamps the music with a sense of place, time and spirit all his own. I really take my hat off to this writer that embraces his culture as it relates to the land, the water, spirit and humanity.

I bought the album 5 days ago on the reccomendation of a colleague. It's fantastic and the whole family are totally grooving to it. Buy this CD now and discover for yourself how much better you will feel when you listen to it. - Don Knight after hearing the album on Amiestreet.com

Official Bio

"I wonder if I'm, born at the Right Time" asks Ry in the chorus of his first single Right Time. If the intial response to Groundwater is any indication, then Ry is born at the Right Time, and people want to hear what he has to say.

Dubbed "just plain excellent" by Amie Street.com, a popular online music store, number 1 at CKMS 100.3 in Waterloo, #3 on the National Aboriginal Top 30 Countdown, nominated at the 2007 Canadian Folk Music Awards and a showcase performer at Canadian Music Week and New Music West, Ry is rapidly making an impact on the Canadian Music scene.

Listening to the album, it is clear that Ry is profoundly moved by the times he is living in, and compelled to right about them. Be it the environment, aboriginal-alities or good old fashioned love, Ry attacks these topics with a sincerity, passion and honesty seldom heard in music today.

When preparing the record this album, Ry searched high and low for a producer. He eventually met JB Eckl, most well known for his work with Santana and Ozomatli. The two quickly became good friends, spending time drifting about the ocean on Ry's small boat discussing the project. In the end, the pair co-wrote the album, each adding their unique style and flavor to the project.

In the final line of Right Time Ry sings "Something tells me that I'm, born at the right time...how can you question desintiny." If the initial response to Groundwater is any indication, then perhaps there is a bit of destiny involved in all of this. '
