Other Projects and Interests

In addition to his main body of musical work, Ryan often records and produces works in hard rock, electronica, and ambient genres. One side project, The Brighter Still, has been a home for songs he writes that have a harder edge and a bigger sound. The other musicians for this project are a rotating cast of characters, and new music is released periodically. Ryan also has a side project called Chipmunk Connector, an electro-pop project named after a trail near his home. From time to time, he engineers and produces albums for other artists, and loves the process of capturing great studio performances. Here are a few examples of songs he has engineered/produced...

April Cannon - Flame Trees (Cold Chisel cover)
Tyler King - I'm Copin' Hagen
Triple Play - Roller Coaster Woman
