“Always count on Matthew Ryan to come in quietly and leave you knocked out on the floor.” – Paste
Matthew Ryan and The Northern Wires are on tour in the UK with The Gaslight Anthem and then performing just a handful of intimate duo shows as well.
Matthew Ryan is experiencing a kind of noisy renaissance. It began in 2014 with the release of Boxers, a fevered and smart rock ‘n’ roll record about the working class, produced by Kevin Salem. May 2017 will see the follow-through with Hustle Up Starlings, a heart-on-the-sleeve collection of silvery anthems that further illustrate Ryan’s reinvigorated love of language, noise and cinema produced by Brian Fallon.
To celebrate this tour. Matthew Ryan is also releasing ‘Starlings Unadorned’. This is a 12 track collection of some stripped down and cinematic acoustic versions of selected songs from Hustle Up Starlings, along with some previously unreleased songs and demos.
“…Hustle Up Starlings proves that Matthew Ryan’s music can hang with those of the heroes he mentioned, even as he’s doing his fans a favor by combining career longevity with musical integrity.” – American Songwriter
