Ryan Power Record Release with Forget Forget

INFO
Saturday, July 13 2013

Burlington, Vermont’s Ryan Power makes stunningly outré pop music imbued with strange funk and damaged soul. His unfolding compositions turn harmonic puzzles turned into pop hooks accompanied by blunt personal lyrics that address contemporary issues such as fear of death, hypochondria, materialism, the music industry, environmental destruction, lust, self-evaluation, and identity crises. Power’s latest, Identity Picks, for NNA Tapes is a 8-song cycle that moves through lush jazz pads, a sensitive side of progressive rock, and aquatic smooth jazz funk styles.  Currently performing with a 5-piece band, Power has shared the stage with the Dirty Projectors, Delicate Steve, Blanche Blanche Blanche and Happy Jawbone Family Band. Forget Forget, a relatively new Portland Maine septet formed by songwriter Tyler Devos, features members of Grand Hotel, Worried Well, Will Gattis, Ramblin’ Red, Sorcha and the Clearing and GinLab, has a full length release in the works and a polished pop rock sensibility.
