Biography

Ryan O’Neal’s journey has taken many turns over the past twelve years under the moniker of Sleeping At Last. The band began with Ryan on guitar, Chad O’Neal on drums, and friend Dan Perdue on bass as a teenage garage band in Wheaton, Illinois (Chicagoland-area). It has organically transitioned to original songwriter O’Neal as a solo artist continuing the gorgeous thread of work that has amazed and captivated listeners over all these years.

Near its inception, Sleeping At Last’s amateur debut album, “Capture,” was noticed by Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan, who helped expose the music to the major-label world. Soon after, the band signed to Interscope Records and released “Ghosts” (2003), their first official full-length album. Two independently-released full-length records followed: “Keep No Score” (2006) and “Storyboards” (2009). In between the writing and recording of albums, the band has established a reputation for a pitch-perfect live show, successfully headlining several U.S. tours and sharing the stage with such artists as Switchfoot, Yellowcard, Something Corporate, Billy Corgan’s Zwan, Alanis Morrisette, Lifehouse, and Phantom Planet, just to name a few. The creative process has always been protected, as the band self-produced each record, working with respected mixers such as John Goodmanson and Alan Moulder.
