If life was fair and I could get paid for doing this, I’d be able to devote my time to discovering more music. My inbox is filled with what I’m sure are lots of quality tunes, but – as the song goes – “time won’t let me”. Well, here’s one from the inbox – Ryan Scott.
Ryan Scott, 24, has been tooling around NYC for the last six years or so – inspired by the sounds of the 70’s. I always get a kick out of reading the “Sounds Like” section on MySpace music pages. Ryan opts for these: “Joni Mitchell, Paul Simon, Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway, Bill Frisell, Chris Whitley, Stevie Wonder, Randy Newman, Curtis Mayfield, Daniel Lanois, Steely Dan, Prince Rogers Nelson, , Jon Brion, Jimi Hendrix.”
There’s some good tunes on his MySpace. I encourage y’all to go check out some of them. Here’s one:

Ryan’s debut album, Smoke & Licorice will be released next week. I’ll get a link up to buy a copy as soon as I find one. His label’s web site (Velour) doesn’t have one available at the moment.
