Peformance – Ryanhood: Under The Leaves, Under The Stars
Named "Best Group/Duo" at the International Acoustic Music Awards, acoustic duo, Ryanhood got their first break more than a decade ago as street performers at Boston's Quincy Market. They've since gone on to perform more than a thousand shows in 45 U.S. states over the past decade, and have shared stages with Jason Mraz, Matt Nathanson, Train and many more.
Their star is still on the rise. Ryanhood was recently named the "Discovery of the Year" by John Platt at WFUV in New York City, and was a featured act at Australia's National Folk Festival.
Their latest album "Under the Leaves" sees the pair's lead guitarist Ryan David Green stepping into the role of sole producer, weaving a tapestry of lush strings and rich harmonies. The album, like their shows, is driven by strong acoustic guitar performances and is at turns energetic, hopeful and quietly moving – a musical invitation to breathe, and to soak in a river of melodies and harmonic hooks.
