Ryan Thomas Oyer
The work of singer-songwriter Ryan Oyer is intrinsically tied to personal experience and emotional connection. Oyer joyfully embraces his own history to inform the spaces within his music and uses the resulting rhythmic roar as a way to connect with his audience. Universal sentiment and intimate insight are irrevocably intertwined within a landscape of folk-rock rurality and indie rock tenacity. Wistfully exploring the same environments as fellow storytellers Jeff Tweedy and Jim James, he conjures comfortable evenings situated around campfires and loses himself within the lulling ease of front porch singalongs. -Joshua Pickard "The Southern Sounding"
