Ryan Star

 

Star was born in Huntington, New York on Long Island, and grew up in nearby Dix Hills. He was 14 years old when he formed his first band called Stage. They released four EPs - "Black" in 1997, "Blue" in 1999, "White" in 2000 and "The Final" in 2004, and in 1995 studio album "Historical Underdosing" and a self-titled album on Maverick Records in 2003. While still in high school, the band played CBGB's and the Mercury Lounge.

When the band parted ways, Star became the solo artist R.Star and released his independently produced debut solo album Songs from the Eye of an Elephant on Stone Crow Records in 2005, some songs of Stage was re-recorded for the album (Perfect, Perfect Time Of Night (Back Of Your Car), "O", Sink Or Swim).

This 26 year old singer-songwriter from Decatur, Georgia is out to revive the passion and soul of the Golden Age of rhythm and blues (1960-1972) for a new generation. His One Haven/Columbia debut album, This is Ryan Shaw, combines a powerfully expressive voice with a clutch of great songs both classic and new and a state of the art, in your face sound that makes it impossible to sit still.

Working with player/producers Jimmy Bralower and Johnny Gale, Ryan dug deep into the “soul mine” for overlooked gems by obscure artists like the combo kings and The Sharpees along with more familiar songs made famous by Wilson Pickett, Jackie Wilson, and Bobby Womack. Ryan’s original tunes—“Nobody” (the first single), “We Got Love,” and “Over And Done” —are most definitely of the moment but built on the old-school values of strong melodies and meaningful lyrics.

Ryan delivers every song with the kind of emotional commitment and vocal panache that have nearly van¬ished from the mainstream musical landscape. Compositional craft and studio technology blend in an album of irresistible appeal from the opening dance blast of “Do The 45” to the heart-wrenching ballad “I Am Your Man” and “Over And Done,” the upbeat Ryan Shaw original that closes the set on a joyful, triumphant note.
