RYAN HUSTON – Best of Ryan Huston

(Sorry NO Tracks List)


The son of a barbershop vocalist and a choir singer Ryan Huston was
destined to be a musician. At the age of 12, Ryan was walking home from
school and found an old guitar that someone had left by their trash. He
instinctively rescued the guitar and took it to the local music shop to
have it restrung. Over the next few years Ryan taught himself to play and
write songs on that guitar and credits the somewhat damaged instrument for
introducing him to his lifes passion. After years of home training Ryan
decided to pursue his art more seriously and enrolled in a series of
college level courses where he studied Music Theory, Music Composition,
Music History, Piano and Sight Reading. He’s achieved an Associates degree
in music and is committed to continuing his studies while maintaining the
demands of his career.

In 2005 Ryan recorded and released his debut LP Right Songs For No One.
The record featured 16 songs which were written, performed and produced
entirely by Ryan. Since its release Right Songs For No One has become an
internet and independent sensation. Thanks to a growing legion of fans
online Ryan has sold over 15,000 copies of his record in a little over a
year with no official distribution and promotion based solely on
word-of-mouth. His following continues to grow on a daily basis thanks in
large part to his presence on MySpace.com where he has over 3.5 million
plays of his songs and over 143,000 “friends”.

Word of this growing activity quickly spread to local, commercial radio and
nationwide college radio. Ryan has done on-air interviews and in-studio
performances at dozens various stations. He has had songs placed on TV
networks such as Lifetime, MTV, The “N” and also various film projects. He
has a growing live fan base routinely selling out shows in his home town of
Santa Rosa, California. His song, “Thank You” was chosen by the people at
TARGET to put on their compilation CD called, Acoustic Mood which was
released on October 15th. Ryan was 1 of 2 unsigned artists that were
featured on that 17 track CD. After the release of Acoustic Mood, the
programming director on SIRIUS Satellite Radio was overwhelmed with
requests to play Ryan. “Thank You” is now currently being played daily on
Acoustic Coffee House, Channel 30. Since then, three additional songs have
also been added into the rotation. Ryan was also recently featured on a
podcast by music industry powerhouse BMI which stacked him against 3 other
artists in a battle-of-the-bands format in which the winner was determined
by fans votes. Ryan more than doubled the record of votes for any artist
that had been featured on any of the previous BMI podcasts and easily won
the competition.

Huston was then brought to Los Angeles by acclaimed producer Chris Lee to
record 7 new songs that showcase his growing talent for compelling and
meaningful songwriting. Music industry interest began brewing before the
recordings were even completed and Ryan is now talking to major labels in
the hopes of finding a creative home for his music. Theres no question
that Ryan will continue his familys legacy in the arts and take it to new
heights in the years to come.

Ryan’s follow up album “Ordinary Day” was recently released early December
’07 and was quick to receive high marks and outstanding reviews. This album
was also written, performed and produced entirely by Ryan. The future looks
bright for this young star as his music continues to grow and receive
national acclaim.
