Band of Horses’ Ryan Monroe Announces Solo Debut
Band Of Horses multi-instrumentalist Ryan Monroe has announced the release of his debut album A Painting of a Painting On Fire, which is set to drop May 22. Monroe plays every instrument on the record, which was recorded at Redstar Studios in Silver Lake, CA with the help of Grammy award-winning producer Chris Testa (Dixie Chicks, Jimmy Eat World).
“I’ve had multiple parts for different instruments brewing in my head for quite some time, and because the studio had so many toys, I started messing with vibes and strange synths to get them out,” says Monroe. “To just walk over to any instrument and start kind of painting the track with it was extremely fun and therapeutic. There were over 120 different instrument tracks on some of the tunes.”
