KOCH Records and Stone Crow Records Release Album From Solo Artist, Ryan Star
"Songs From the Eye of An Elephant" Set for a Rush Release on September 19th, 2006
NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 15, 2006 -- After Ryan Star gained a great deal of buzz
and became a fan favorite on a popular reality-based television program
featuring top musicians from around the world, Stone Crow/KOCH Records are
officially releasing "Songs From the Eye of An Elephant," a stripped down
collection of outtakes and demos highlighting Ryan Star's pure talent.
The album is being rush-released for a September 19th in-store date.
Earlier this year, the New York City indie rocker was a MySpace Featured
Artist in March and in May, music industry bible Billboard Magazine stated,
"Ryan Star is absolutely incredible," adding "[he is] a shining presence
awaiting his close-up."
Months before he even contemplated being on a reality show, Star was
selling out shows in the Northeast (his latest was with up-and-coming UK
star Corinne Bailey Rae at Bowery Ball Room in NYC) and riding the wave to
national recognition when a friend in the industry put him on the list to
audition for the show. On a whim, Star continued through several rounds of
auditions with over 25,000 people until he was selected for the final cast.
At first Star rejected the offer because his career was already breaking
organically, but later accepted after realizing the global exposure would
catalyst his growth. He is now planning a global tour to perform for all
his new fans.
Over the past few years, Star has toured the country with major acts like
Bon Jovi, KISS, Chevelle and Third Eye Blind. He has had notable
appearances such as opening for Avril Lavigne, Gavin DeGraw, and headlining
a Pre-Election Night Party for Mayor Bloomberg. He has also worked with top
producers such as Greg Wattenberg (Five for Fighting) and Tim Palmer (U2,
"Songs From the Eye of An Elephant" highlights the pure talent of Ryan
Star. Although it started as a gift to fans supporting his live shows in
the Lower East Side of New York City, KOCH will now officially release the
album with major distribution.
