Matthew Ryan

An alt-country singer/songwriter in the vein of Josh Rouse and Ryan Adams, Matthew Ryan funnels his rasped vocals and passionate lyrics into a steady stream of somber, melancholic albums. Born in Chester, PA, the young Ryan took inspiration from such artists as U2, the Replacements, and Leonard Cohen. He moved to Delaware and logged several years in a series of bands before signing with A&M Records as a solo artist in 1996. May Day was released a year later, drawing comparisons to Tom Waits and sparking a prolific career that often saw Ryan releasing one album every 12 months. His A&M contract slowly dissolved after the label merged with Interscope Records, and Ryan hopped between labels (including a stint with the U.K.-based One Little Indian Records) before aligning himself with 00:02:59. Matthew Ryan vs. the Silver State, his 11th release in 11 years, arrived in 2008. ~ Andrew Leahey & MacKenzie Wilson, Rovi

I really like his voice and music. I can dig this.
nothing gets my c**k harder
Why would anyone want to listen to an artist who is described as somber and melancholic ? It's bad enough I have to turn on the news and see what the latest disaster is that Obama has heaped upon the country

Dont drink while listening to this guy....lol he will cause you to open a vein...lmao not an insult, its deep, heart felt, but not for the faint of heart. Great music though....es p e c i a l l y when you feel like wallowing in self pitty for a few hours on the train or a rainy day
I bought "East Autumn Grin" completely on a hunch several years ago, and it is one of my all-time favorite albums. Matthew Ryan is also great live, if you ever get a chance to see him.
We both were in the same homeroom in gradeschool, ans I never knew that Matt could rock like this! Great Stuff!!!

Have thoroughly enjoyed his voice and heart squeezing lyrics for at least 13 years or so. What a treat to listen to.

Hey Every One, I appreciate the kind words here. Wanted to let you know I have a new record coming out called Dear Lover. Go to my website for details. The digital release is 10/27, and February 16th, 2010 is the traditional In Stores release date. We put a a song called The Wilderness from Dear Lover up on youtube. Just search it there.

Take care!

it doesn't get better than matthew ryan. for all of us fans it's hard to believe he doesn't have a larger following. God knows we're all trying to make it happen!

no offense to anyone but this page does not do M.R. justice.
dig deeper where you can.
Matthew Ryan has found a spot in my soul that I never knew existed until I heard him. I get the distinct feeling he has come face to face with an emotional hell and though weary...has won.
I GUESS I'LL WALK OUTSIDE AND OPEN A VEIN. ITS THAT GOOD.
gritty honesty that hits you in the heart.
I can't get enough of this great poet/musicia n .
Please add more of his albums to the Pandora jukebox.
I need more!
always impressive.. . .
