Casey Ryder is a friend of Matt Masters from yesterday’s post. They have toured together and have complimentary but by no means similar sounds. While Matt mines the western honkey tonk sound of Bakersfield and points North, Casey explores vaudvillian music from the 20′s and 30′s with a touch of Tom Waits and swing thrown in for good measure.
Casey’s new record, Here, can be pre-ordered here. I’ve got two tracks to sample below.
