Local musician, multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter and author Audrey Ryan will be celebrating the release of her book, “The Need to be Heard”, with performance and book readings tomorrow night at the Clarendon Hill Presbyterian Church in Somerville. Joining her will be author/artist/musician Dylan Metrano (Tiger Saw) and songwriter/performer/landscaper Guy Capecelatro III.
(from the press release): “The Need To Be Heard” is a book for and about DIY (“Do It Yourself”) musicians- those artists who do not have big support teams that consist of labels, managers, and lawyers. It is the story of a variety of artists, both known and unknown, all united by a burning desire to be heard. Through interviews with dozens of artists and people in the music industry, and through her own story, Ryan reveals that our experiences in this business are collective in our triumphs and struggles.”
It features exclusive interviews with Ian MacKaye (Fugazi/Dischord Records), Dana Colley (Morphine), Nat Baldwin (Dirty Projectors), Mark Richardson (Pitchfork), Lowell Brams (Asthmatic Kitty Records), Dave Godowsky (Rounder Records), and many others.
Some of you may be familiar with Audrey’s wonderful “one-woman-band” shows (electric guitar, accordion, ukulele, banjo, vibraphone, glockenspeil, drums, looping) and her warm, personable storytelling style. Her latest release is Thick Skin.
