While I was in Massachusetts at Play On Brother Studios this past July, I met this really cool cat named Ryan. He stopped by the studio one evening as Alan and I were recording some tracks, and Ry decided to hang around, ya know the regular musicians thing, just hanging, vibing and kickin’ it.
So, we’re kind of scrolling and skipping through some of the cuts just to get Ryan’s opinion and catch him up to speed, when this one song comes on, called “FLY AWAY” featuring Katie Scirto, Sufana Wajed and Richie English. The minute that the tune dropped, Ry started plucking some sweet arrangements and riffs on his guitar.

The next thing you know, “one take” later…Ryan sets the tone and puts the cream cheese frosting on the red velvet cake, right on the spot and killed the track. On the first take, FLY AWAY was taken to another level, thanks to my mane!!

Oh..I almost forgot. The GIT-TAR picture above is THE guitar I tagged for him after the session. It says “SOUL.”
