Keep an eye and an ear tuned to Mixed Media each week until 9/21 for new videos.
 

On September 21st, Boston based Ryan Montbleau Band will release Heavy on the Vine, the band’s third, independently released studio CD. The recording was financed by sales of a live, solo CD, Stages Volume II. Ryan was named the Best Local Male Vocalist in the 2007 Boston Local Music Awards, and won two awards the same year in the International Songwriting Competition. The band has become a regular on the festival circuit, and spent the past four months touring the country along side Martin Sexton (who produced Heavy on the Vine) as his opening act as well as his backing band for Martin’s own songs. Though the band has made a name for itself among the jamband crowd with a rigorous schedule, the real beauty lies in the poetic and lovely lyrics of the 33-year-old Villanova graduate. The six-piece band has begun recording intimate videos of the 14 new tracks and will post a new video each week until the new CD is released. Below, enjoy the first two videos and keep an ear open and an eye on Mixed Media for the new videos each week until September 21st.
