Declaring a War! (Against Myself)
(Slowly) Turning Stagnant
Ryan Velvet is an Asian-American singer-songwriter based in San Antonio, TX. Following a childhood obsession to the vibrant melodies of the Beatles and the Beach Boys, the abstract and pointed lyricism of Bob Dylan, as well as the direct abrasiveness of hardcore punk acts such as Minor Threat, Bad Brains, and Black Flag, Ryan Velvet soon began to learn how to record music on his own as a young child.
Over the years, Ryan Velvet has since armed himself with a guitar and microphone to conjure up a bubbling mixture of cathartic, pop-infused, lo-fi indie rock that aims to exorcize demons, while having a good time doing so.
