And the little king monicker?
“I was born Ryan, which is Gaelic for ‘Little King’. You can either choose a new name or live up to the one given to you. By forgoing a more traditional path in life in favor of creating music, I feel like I’m meeting that challenge. I’m my own little king, creating my own little cosmos.”
With the release of Adelaide, Rickenbach plans to keep doing what he does best: writing and performing music. There also may be traveling in his future, as the desire to disappear in a foreign place remains one of his strongest forms of inspiration. Of course, wherever he goes, there’s no doubt he’ll find a way to create his own little cosmos.
