Hello Ryan! How are you?

I was hoping maybe you could answer a question for me, maybe...

I was so curious as to know what All This To Say was about... because its my motivation for writing, I have such a big love for writing and journaling when I listen to it, that's the vibe I get off from the song. I really wanted to know what the inspiration was for it.. its the first song I ever hear from you that made me a fan of you and is still my favorite song from you today.

Oh and do you know at all when you might be going on tour again?

God bless you Ryan, you'll always be my favorite singer.

i can, i think! jon was kind enough to invite me to contribute to about 5 or so songs on his upcoming solo record. he'd send me some guitar/vocal tracks and basically gave me free reign to do whatever i envisioned with the songs.. it was a really special and wonderful experience for me to be able to do whatever i wanted on music from someone i admire so much!

so i played strings, pianos, drums, bass, etc and just layered tons of stuff! no release date is nailed down yet, but i can't wait for folks to hear it! it's some of jon's best songwriting to date.

Hello Ryan :)

I am curious to know what your inspiration was for Overture. It is the one song on the new EP that really speaks to me.
I've been a fan of your music for quite a while and it am so glad it is part of the soundtrack of my life. thank you :)

hey there! i have about 3 years of atlas mapped out already.. (thematically).. but i don't really have an end date in mind after that at all... the overall theme of the project is kind of large enough that i could do this for as long as i want. i'm pretty excited about it!

thanks for the kind words about the first ep! means a lot to hear that!
