CCM Student Ryan Fine releases his first solo album Alone with Dreamers at Woodward Theater in OTR on Saturday, June 18, 2016. Doors open 7:30pm, music at 8:30pm.
To call Cincinnati native, Singer/Songwriter/Producer Ryan Fine’s first solo album “Alone with Dreamers” a “labor of love” is an understatement. From the first orchestral all-strings track entitled “Truth and Beauty” to heart-wrenching fan favorite “Pull the Plug” featuring his talented singer/songwriter sister, Kelly Fine from Cincinnati’s Young Heirlooms, Ryan’s attention to details shines through every momentous note. Wiser and motivated beyond his (almost) 21 years, Ryan invested a full year to create, produce, write, arrange, sing and engineer a noteworthy collection of songs on a shoestring budget. Recorded at University of Cincinnati - College Conservatory of Music, Ryan pulled in fellow Jazz Performance Major friends to provide accompaniment, giving many of his tracks a full sound. Notable Cincinnati Guitarist, Brad Myers (The Brad Myers Trio, The MidWestern Swing) layered on rhythm guitar on Pity and a burning solo on Think Fast. Ryan is an assistant engineer at Newport’s Audio Grotto where Music, Film and Sound Design specialist – Ashley Shepherd stepped in to master the final recordings. The result of Ryan’s year of collaboration, writing, producing and recording is a collection of moving, well prepared, ear catching songs from the heart that are sure to grab you on a deep level.
