Warner Bros. Records/Warner Music Nashville’s Ryan Kinder released his brand new EP, the Deconstructed Studio Sessions to all streaming services today. The track listing features studio cuts of some of Kinder’s songs as well as a cover of Justin Bieber’s “Sorry.” Fans who go to www.ryankinder.com to connect on Spotify and follow his playlist of favorite cover songs will also unlock an exclusive video performance of “Sorry.”
Kinder recently performed at a sold out show with Brandy Clark at Nashville’s Basement East and will be playing select dates through the summer. Kinder, who was included as one of Tomorrow’s Hits in Billboard and named one of “10 New Country Artists You Need to Know November 2015” by Rolling Stone, is already receiving high praise from critics.
Billboard calls Kinder “a singer-songwriter with an intense, urgent vocal style” and Storme Warren of SiriusXM’s The Highway told listeners, “You’re witnessing the birth of one of the greatest artists to come from Music Row,” when he first played Kinder’s song “Kiss Me When I’m Down.”
Born in Knoxville, TN, raised in Birmingham, AL, and shaped as a performer in the University of Alabama bar scene, he brings a wide mix of unconventional influences and natural talent as both a singer-songwriter and guitar player.
Kinder is working with top Nashville songwriters Ashley Gorley, Ross Copperman, Josh Osborne, Chris DeStefano and Tom Douglas. He’s also been on the road with acts as diverse as Tim McGraw, Zac Brown and Brett Eldredge and ended this past year on tour with Jennifer Nettles and Brandy Clark.
