Episode 354: Ryan Clair - Among The Pines
Born and raised in a small mountain community in southern California, Ryan Clair was the first born child to a young mom who did all she could to raise a kid amidst trials, heartache and broken relationships. Though she didn't play, music was something Ryan's mother shared with him at an early age. Music has a way to help escape reality and bring a sense of joy and peace in the moments of pain and uncertainty.
In his early teens, Ryan Clair picked up his guitar and spent much of his life playing in bands, finding out who he was as a musician.
A few years later, a now married Ryan Clair, a father of 5, has reached a place where he feels at home in his life and his music.
Ryan writes songs that tell his story, a journey of faith as a follower of Jesus Christ.
In 2018 Ryan Clair's 'Less Traveled Road' LP introduced us to his impressive, gritty, southern rock chops with an absolute barn burner of a record. The year 2019 found Ryan adjusting course in more ways than one: he made the westward move to the scenic Pacific Northwest where, inspired by his new surroundings, he penned a starkly minimal sophomore album.
This brings us to the present:
His newest album,
Among the Pines, released on January 24th, 2020.
'Among the Pines' is a musical journey of the soul with Clair positioned as the narrator on a solo trek through the mountains. Intentionally never reaching the sheer rock bigness his previous album had, he instead steers into an alt-country simplicity that flows from song to song.
