HEAR THIS: Ryan Barrington Cox
Inventive pop-folk artist from North Carolina Ryan Barrington Cox creates a mellow vibe on his recent full length album Pool. The album begins with “Watch Pot”, a little recorded vocal exercise, and then lyrics dripping with Americana and sweetly jangling along to the tambourine. The tracks are small town charm with a national appeal, a nod to spring time bathing in the sun.
The release is name your price on Bandcamp lending to the intimate connection that Ryan Barrington Cox is able to establish. The songs are masterfully produced and “recorded at home in a wooden wonderful room.”
