LISTEN: Ryan Montbleau Offers Candidness & Comfort Via Experimental Track “Perfect”

For as long as he can remember, Ryan Montbleau has been a seeker. From the jungles of Peru to the volcanoes of Hawaii, from the beaches of Costa Rica to the streets of Brooklyn, from the backseat of a 16-passenger van to backstage at Carnegie Hall, the acclaimed singer/songwriter has spent much of his life crisscrossing the globe on a perpetual search for meaning, purpose, and understanding. It’s a quest that’s guided him both personally and professionally over the years, one that’s come to define not only his music but his very sense of self.

Seeped in an intimate and conversational vocal feel, Ryan Montbleau sings with inviting candidness on his new track “Perfect” from his Wood EP – one of four EPs being released. Reflecting his organic and forthright persona. “Perfect” is colorfully personal with banjo sprinkled amidst a warm rhythm section. Montbleau possesses a charming vocal presentation that makes him a populist singer-songwriter in today’s broken times of communication

“I honestly didn’t know what this project was going to be for a very long time. All I knew was that I had a bunch of songs I was really excited about, and that I wanted to take a new approach to recording them. It took a long time for me to get to a place where I could trust myself enough to stretch out like this,” says Montbleau, who experimented with synthesizers and drum machines and added piano and mandolin to his repertoire for the project. “I’d always kind of deferred to other people’s expertise in the studio, but learning to trust my ears and get my hands dirty with the music was a totally empowering experience.”
