Weekend Musical Diversion: Ryan Knorr II

July 10, 2010

Ryan Knorr has been churning out cover tunes that are as good or better than the original tunes for a few years now.  This cover version of City and Colour’s “Sensible Heart” is another example of a song that falls into that category.  You might remember that I featured his original tune “What About Me” on 360 Degree Self (check it out here) last October.

I’m happy to report that Ryan just released his first full-length album a couple weeks ago and it is called The Path of Greatest Resistance.  While I don’t own a copy – yet, I’ve been mesmerized by his voice and music ever since I stumbled upon a cover version of a Shinedown song.  Apparently others have been mesmerized too as Ryan’s videos have been viewed more than 1.5 million times.

If you like this song, please visit Ryan’s YouTube Channel here or check out his website to listen to and purchase his new CD.  There are plenty of things in this world I’m not sure about anymore, but I’m sure that Ryan is a great singer, a talented musician and that he deserves a lot more attention.

Hi Tim,
Yes, I remember your video last October with Ryan Knorr. I was awed by him back then, too. I’m thrilled to read here he has a new album out. His voice sinks down into my bones. I think he’s an amazing musician.

Thanks for featuring him here, Tim. You’ve got the ears for the most amazing artists! I’m never disappointed when I visit 360 Degree Self. Thanks, bro!

I hope you’re having a kick-butt weekend. :)

Hi Lori: Good to hear you enjoyed Ryan’s video…it was another one of those situations where I stumbled upon a video of his that I hadn’t seen yet and ended up watching it again and again and had to share here. Yeah, I really pull for musicians like R.K. and hope he can really get his name out there. Thank you, as always, for your support here and I hope you’re having a great weekend!
