Biography

This 26 year old from Decatur, Georgia is out to revive the passion and soul of the Golden Age of (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.
