Today, Terence Ryan announces his debut album Don’t Panic set for release June 23 on 3QTR (The Internet, Steve Lacy) alongside an in-depth interview with The Boston Globe. Blending elements of folk, soul, and indie-rock with big 808 drums, he shares a new video for “To Live And Die In New England” featuring the diverse scenes and faces of the local area. The track is available now on all digital retailers.
Don’t Panic is a ten track collection that explores the modern struggle to achieve something a little better than what we have. Like so many kids growing up in the working class that America has left behind, Terence is seeking more. What was once a linear path from hard work to upper middle class is now a meandering labyrinth of opiate abuse, government deception, and seasonal depression. Terence wants more for his family, his peers, his community, and the world. His music captures this personal journey in a way that can resonate with people everywhere who feel disenfranchised.
Few artists have introduced themselves quite like Terence Ryan, with such heartfelt storytelling, making music out of the industrial warehouse where he made a living. Upon the release of his 2015 debut EP Will Word & Hand, his unique sound and vision prompted Buzzfeed to describe his work as “life changing.” Channeling the frustrations of everyday life – from his job in a Boston door hinge factory to the struggles of working-class America – his music is raw and unfiltered, yet comes across as a beautiful juxtaposition.
