Album reviewed by:
Country newcomer Ryan Hurd’s distinctive sound has been coming through radio speakers across America since he signed with Universal Music Publishing as a songwriter three years ago. After co-writing songs cut by Blake Shelton, Tim McGraw, Jake Owen, Rascal Flatts, Randy Houser, Darius Rucker, The Cadillac Three, Brothers Osborne and the Swon Brothers, the Kalamazoo, Michigan is lending his own voice to the songs he writes and taking them on the road.
“Songwriting will always be a huge part of who I am, but I am excited to follow the full life of the songs. I’m ready to connect with people and to grow as an artist,” says Hurd.
Ryan and his childhood friend, writer and producer Aaron Eshuis, went into the studio to record five-song EP, Panorama, which was released promotionally to a sold out crowd of over 500 at Nashville’s Basement East in August of 2015.
“Aaron and I have been writing songs and playing music together since we were 14 years old in Kalamazoo, so Panorama feels like we’ve come full circle. It’s amazing to start down this new part of my artistic journey with so many supportive and creative people,” Hurd says.
