Matthew Ryan – The First Heartbreak

matthewryan_boxersMatthew Ryan‘s career began in 1997 with alt-country leanings and made its way through genre shifts from folk to electronica.

His latest release, Boxers, is a full-out rock record, albeit with some softer stuff for variety. It’s also a great way for Ryan to display his detail-rich, heart-on-his-sleeve songwriting skills.
The presence of Brian Fallon of The Gaslight Anthem on guitar and the unfettered passion in Ryan’s approach might get him lumped in with the New Springsteens of the world. But Ryan has too much stylistic wiggle in him to get pinned down too easily.

There’s a little Paul Westerberg in the disheveled character sketches of “Suffer No More,” while the brooding rumbler “God’s Not Here Tonight” is reminiscent of The National.” – American Songwriter
