Take a listen to ANIMALS from Brooklyn’s RYAN STAR, and you’ll hear why Paper Magazine dubbed him “the alt-rock Frank Ocean.” Mixing explosive rock moments with atmospheric loops and samples, Ryan’s music provides both intensity and space for his autobiographical lyrics. It’s no surprise that his songs have such a cinematic quality to them because, as Ryan puts it, “When I sit down at the piano, I have a movie in my head. I want to give people an experience they can see.” Ryan’s songs have also appeared prominently in television and film (P.S. I Love You, The Vampire Diaries, and the theme song to Lie to Me) and he has shared the stage with many incredible artists, including Imagine Dragons, Bon Jovi, Maroon 5, and Goo Goo Dolls.
