Episode 089 - Ryan Montbleau

We first saw Ryan Montbleau back in 2012 in Boston on a Rock and Blues Cruise that featured the Ryan Montbleau Band. It was a full boat and was packed with Ryan Montbleau fans and the band totally rocked the house. Or rather the boat.

The singer-songwriter and bandleader has been a relentless road warrior. His last album called I Was Just Leaving is a bit more introspective than his previous but certainly shows off his songwriting chops. His most recent project is a duo with the wonderful Hayley Jane called Yes Darling.

Our occasional co-host Ike Walker joined us at our usual location in Concord, MA and we talked jury duty, moving, writing, dreams…uh…eggs…lots of stuff!

Song List:

Song 1: Moving Too Fast (I Was Just Leaving) Song 2: Fast Car (feat. Tall Heights - All Or Nothing) Song 3: Misplaced Anger (Yes Darling) Song 4: Eggs (Patience On Friday) Song 5: Bright Side (I Was Just Leaving)

Live Songs:

Song 1: Call Your Mother Song 2: Looking Glass
