Maudlin Paupin' Man

Hi, I'm Ryan. I've been writing songs and playing in bands since I was 13. I started playing clubs when I was 15, recording in studios at 16, and at 25 I packed up and moved to NYC, where I was in and out of bands for 15 years. Now, at 41, I'm back in Arizona and decided to "go solo" with buddies!

by Primitive State

I've been writing songs for 7 years, purely for myself. It wasn't until last year my record producer buddy said he'd do an album for me for free, simply because he wanted a copy for himself to listen to. The song 'Streetwalker' is like if The Stooges and The White Stripes banged. True story.

Let It All Burn

by Love Ghost

'Let It All Burn' is how I see the world through my 18-year-old eyes. The hypocrisy and unwanted advice that weighed me down during senior year led to this song. My dad being diagnosed with stage 3 cancer made me more determined - "fuck what they say, I make my own way."
