Boston’s Terence Ryan is set to release his debut album Don’t Panic June 23rd on 3QTR (The Internet, Steve Lacy) via Kobalt Music Recordings. Today, he drops new single “Nothing” – available now on all digital retailers. Fusing elements of folk, soul, and indie-rock with big 808 drums, Terence comments:
“This is probably one of the most direct songs on Don’t Panic. The vocals were recorded on the side of Highway 5 in my Honda Accord while I was living in it – microphone hanging from the rear view mirror.”
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.
