Artist: Ryan Bingham
Ryan Bingham grew up in Texas with an unusual childhood. He had been living alone as a teenager, living with relatives in border towns and sleeping in his car. These experiences contribute to his authentic, worn sound that won him a Grammy for his work with T-Bone Burnett on the hit movie Crazy Heart.
From 2010’s Junky Star, “Hallelujah” is gravelly, raspy and chock-full of emotion. The roughness of Bingham’s voice juxtaposed
with his sweet and beautiful guitar playing creates a perfect balance and exemplifies his unique stories. Check it out, and let us know what you think in the comments below.
