Ryan Bingham's music defies classification with folk, blues, country and rock n roll all part of the recipe. It's authentic and powerful and the songs are rooted in real life - in survival and sacrifice and, yes, sometimes just having a damn good time. Nobody making music today has a voice like Bingham’s, one that has the worn and weary character of an old fighter more than twice his age but the power of a young man. It’s an intoxicating mixture that reaches new levels with the support of his talented band. Bingham is a singer-songwriter, not a product, and his music shows how the overarching theme of the personal and communal American existence can encompass triumph and tragedy from one moment to the next.
