Ryan Balthrop releases ‘Leap of Faith’ CD
Mobile, AL September 10, 2013
Mobile, Alabama based singer / songwriter, Ryan Balthrop has been writing and performing with various bands for nearly 20 years along the Gulf Coast and around the Southeastern United States, with Caribbean and European tours also under his belt. In recent years he has stayed closer to home and focused on writing and recording at MEKA Studios. With the release of his most recent solo album, Leap of Faith, Balthrop revealed a deeper side, with songs based in spirituality and some dealing with the reality of death. Others are comical looks at life, and there are some heartfelt relationship ballads in his original repertoire as well. Possessing a natural stage presence, a strong soulful voice and a quirky sense of humor, Balthrop continues to impress audiences in a diverse number of ways. His style is a blend of Island Blues, Folk, Funk, Reggae, and Improv.
Balthrop’s first two music videos for the songs ‘Way Down Low’, and ‘Runaway Train of Thought’, have made it into the Top 10 at The South Alabama Film Festival and another one he is featured on, Sonny Bama’s ‘The Bottom’ also made the Top 10.
Balthrop has been performing with a rotating cast of some of the Gulf Coasts finest musicians, and he is looking to expand his touring range, and tour on a more regular basis.
Leap of Faith CD is available from iTunes, Amazon and also www.ryanbalthrop.com
