Last year was one of Ryan's busiest years to date: he toured nationally and internationally with Sufjan Stevens, performed at some of the world’s great concert halls with Maria Schneider, played on the soundtrack to Woody Allen's latest, To Rome With Love, and appeared on NBC with the Saturday Night Live band. This year, Ryan has appeared at South by Southwest with Escort and at Jazz Standard with the Gil Evans Centennial Project, among many, many other musical endeavors. He has also been working on bridging some of these musically disparate worlds with his new groove-oriented band, Catharsis, which features Mike Rodriguez on trumpet, Jorge Roeder on bass, and Eric Doob on drums.
Ryan is currently developing a new diet book based on the four pillars of good eating: pork, salt, rendered fat, and beer. Additionally, all meals are to be consumed while watching archival footage of Packers games and silently cursing the Bears after every third bite.
As part of our fundraising efforts for our upcoming recording, Brooklyn Babylon, we are offering you the opportunity to sponsor a Secret Society musician — if you would like to sponsor Ryan's appearance on our new album, or lend your support at any level, please visit our Kickstarter page.
