RY X Dawn on LP + Download
Listen closely to RY X. He creates songs that are intimate, intuitive and devotional - think Nick Drake meets Nils Frahm. RY has already gotten quite a bit of attention overseas - 40M streams on Spotify, 6M views for his "Berlin" music video, and Sam Smith even covered one of his songs for the BBC.
Speaking of Berlin, Ry also has deep ties to the electronic/house music scene there through Howling, his collaboration with Frank Wiedemann. You may also have heard RY X's "stunning" (Pigeons & Planes) voice by way of The Acid, his project with DJ Adam Freeland and composer Steve Nalepa, which has earned praise from Pitchfork, NPR and others.
In May 2016 Loma Vista will release RY X's full-length debut entitled Dawn, an emotionally frank piece of work, with tender vocals bearing his heart over subtle instrumentals. The man's got a pop sensibility but with a super-intimate approach. Lead track "Only" was recorded live to tape at LA's Pulse Studio with RY playing every instrument.
