Watch "In Time" which is the first video off Ryan's new album with videography by Phillip Hamer of Clayton Studios & engineered by Tazu Marshall. Visit HERE to experience it on Facebook or HERE to catch it on YouTube. The trio consists of
Ryan Marquez on piano, Ben Wheeler on bass and Steve Davis on drums.
The album features instrumental pieces inspired by Ryan's experiences in St. Louis and were mostly written in the beginning of last year. This was a tough time for our country, our city and for Ryan in his personal life as he was very thoughtful in expressing these difficult emotions alongside his good intentions. The song titles and meanings certainly show his consideration and respect for himself, for others and for his approach to songwriting.
The album has ten songs, eight originals and two covers. The digital release is now available on the digital platforms. The physical release show will be your first chance at getting the disk in hand for $10.00. This show is appropriate for all-ages too.
