Ryan Smith is a singer-songwriter from Columbus, and this is his new album Waiting. It is currently available to download for free, and it’s a pretty sweet listen too. Ryan uses a ton of instruments throughout the album to create the happiest of instrumentations, and his vocals really help drive the songs forwards.
The mix of piano, electro and acoustic elements is very intriguing and produces some very exciting sounds, and overall it’s just a really good record. Waiting is full of emotions, mostly about the subject of love, but while that may be a subject done to death over the years, Ryan Smith manages to reinvigorate it with the use of these electronic elements. It's definitely difficult to remain a cynical person while listening to Waiting as it's just so optimistic sounding and lovely.
