Ryan Dart’s music encompasses the worlds that he lives in. You can’t sing about needing rain, unless you really know what it means to need rain. The new album, Drifters Heart, showcases his earnest and heartfelt songwriting, stripped down to its core and presented honestly. Recorded in Austin, TX and Boulder, CO, the album is a departure from some of Ryan’s earlier, more rock leaning offerings. Yet, it still retains all of the qualities common throughout Ryan’s music – genuine lyrics, vivid imagery, and an authentic take on American music.
