Mando master Jimmy Ryan will take fans for a ride Wednesday, March 13, at Lizard Lounge when he celebrates the release of his acclaimed new record with his band Hayride, featuring longtime collaborators Duke Levine, Kevin Barry, Billy Beard and Richard Gates.
Ryan's divergent, redefining styles are well reflected in "Readville," the fifth solo recording of his 30-plus-year career. From the chiming rock of "What If I Fall," to the hillbilly-soul ballad "Every Word," Ryan's unique sound and style resonates throughout. Within days of its release, the album was already getting highly favorable reviews and strong airplay on local radio even topping the New Music Test voting of WUMB, beating the likes of Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell in an online poll.
Named after the suburban Boston neighborhood that the upstate New York native now makes his home, an Hyde Park/Dedham area once called Low Plains, "Readville" has a spartan feel befitting the industrial history of its namesake. Featuring just three musicians, and recorded in the home studio of one of the players, "Readville" also marks the fiddling debut of Ryan.
It is remarkable that Ryan could even find the time to craft the eight new originals, let alone tackle a new instrument, given that he still tours the world, fronts his own bands and is in high demand as a player locally. If there's a big roots music gig in the Boston area, chances are Ryan will be onboard. But none will be bigger than this coming out party at the Lizard.
Indie-popster ERIC-JON opens the show at 9:00.
