Pat Ryan is a texas country artist from Lexington, TX. Playing nonstop since the age of 9, Pat developed his unique talent early. Raised on southern rock and blues, Pat then took his bluesy background and brought it the texas country scene. In January of 2012, he then formed a band out of College Station, TX. known as Pat Ryan & The Jaded Kind. Pat Ryan is currently recording their first EP Album to be released in the summer of 2013.

“Sweet Appalachia” is the follow-up to These Mad Dogs of Glory’s self-titled premiere EP of early 2011. Since then the line-up has shifted to include a new bassist and the opportunity to record with local reputable producer Erik Wofford of Cacophony Studios (The Black Angels, White Denim, Explosions in the Sky). This collaboration at Cacophony is documented via a music video of tracks “Appalachian Funk #1” &“2” filmed by Aaron & Jaime Brown of Onion Creek Productions. “The songs on ‘Sweet Appalachia’ were written as a way to recapture the love of growing up in New England, dealing with the death of a loved one, & accept a life, living on the road”, says chief songwriter Ryan O’Sullivan. The earthy rock n roll grit of “Sweet Appalachia” serves to be a great testament to the roads that have led to this new era of These Mad Dogs of Glory.

After humble beginnings in the small town of College Station, Texas the Band now known as “Larynx Music” began what they thought would be a slow and steady growing process. Playing their original music at various open mic nights, and other events in the college town home of Texas A&M University, Larynx’s music went viral and made it way across the map… On Monday August 20, 2012 Larynx Music recorded their first single “The One” along with “Circles” for their First EP ” Cosmic Love ” at ” New Fiction Studios” in Dallas, Texas with Producer Bryan David. This platform propelled their music off the ground like never before… Larynx Music seeks to inspire and to make the listener feel the pleading vocals, and thoughtful arrangements of every song. Their music will surely tap at you heart until you let them in.

Taz is no newcomer to the Bryan/College Station music culture as he’s performed shows and open mics since he began his college career at A&M. As a multi-instrumentalist, Taz’s lush harmonies and unique instrumentation have, over time, created a signature sound; a concoction of suave jazz, r&b, and almost anything else that can be played on six strings. His music can be described as electric and innovative, a blue fire pirouetting to be witnessed. This Friday he will be joined by fellow musicians Amy Westwick, David Johnson, and Brenton Kim to reinvent the craft of the acoustic experience. Using a wide variety of songs and instruments, this group will have you singing along to the classics.
