Deep River-based musician Ryan Patrick White performs in a wide variety of musical projects, ranging from aggressive hardcore to suburban indie rock. Recently, White has issued his newest solo endeavor as a singer-songwriter, an album called Dying in Deep River.
Like its title suggests, Dying In Deep River is a deeply personal chronicle of harrowing introspection. Excellently produced, most songs center around White’s mournful quaver and ornate acoustic arrangements, occasionally dabbling with piano and electronic supplements. White has a subtly particular way around a melody, often having the effect of making even major keys sound minor. A sense of loss tangibly pervades the record, with White capturing forlorn moments in diary-esque lyrical sketches.
