“Most people took up hobbies when the pandemic hit, knitting, bread making, etc. But Ryan Oyer made an entire album on his damn cell phone.”
A generational and relatable storytelling album filled with enthusiastic sentiments of love. Performing songs with his sons and his father demonstrates perfectly the beauty of his message.
A melodic inspiring journey of Fatherhood. His daily adventures of teaching, learning and growing together, exploring and creating together. With groovy feel good original music staying true to his Brit-Pop musical influences; Ryan created melodies you can’t help to hum for days while smiling.
Rise & Shine is the first track and single of the titled album. This song has a positive and uplifting feel. (I set it as my alarm tone. It’s a very pleasant awakening)
Chattz Coffee partnered with Ryan to release their blend of Rise & Shine coffee to coincide with the record release party and Chattanooga Brewing Co. is creating a coffee stout too!
I’m telling you Rise & Shine is now a whole new vibe.
As you keep listening and experiencing what could have been titled “A Day in the Life” of Ryan Oyer, you are greeted with “Carpenter’s Son”.
In this song Ryan expresses who he is as an individual in his beautifully told story.
Ryan has a captivating way of taking you on a journey through hours in a day to a chapter of life with the layout of his tracks.
