In 2010, songwriter Ryan Traster took to the road as a solo artist. He hasn’t stopped moving since. Whether it be from one coast to another, or from one musical style to another, Ryan’s multiple releases and nomadic lifestyle reflect his unwavering stand against being confined to one place or musical genre. This is not an easy road, and each of his releases, which range in style from indie to garage to folk to power-pop, has come at a steep price. Whether it be sleepless nights in a cold van or working odd jobs to pay for studio time, Ryan does what’s necessary to realize his artistic vision on his terms. And the hard work is paying off. Ryan and his music have been featured on American Songwriter, Death and Taxes, Daytrotter, iTunes “New & Noteworthy”, MPR, City Pages and more, in addition to receiving national radio play and placement in several popular television shows. Six years of hard living later, Ryan Traster is only getting stronger, releasing a highly anticipated new EP produced by Ed Ackerson (Joseph Arthur, Jayhawks, Polara) on 9/30 via Dead Letter Records/The Orchard.
Singer-songwriter Ryan Holweger has spent most of the past year and a half living and performing in Southeast Asia, and he will be returning to Minneapolis this summer long enough to release a new digital single, along with a performance at the Aster Cafe. The former Western Fifth frontman has been working on his first solo full length album with producer Mark Stockert at Underwood Recording, which should be release later in 2017.
