For those of you who loved Ryan Star on Rockstar Supernova even half as much as me you'll be thrilled to know that Ryan's Dark Horse album is already available. This album contains some of the covers we all fell in love with on the show such as Losing My Religion, In the Air Tonight and Clocks as well as Ryan's original song Back of Your Car among others. You can purchase a hard copy of the CD at http://stores.musictoday.com/store/dept.asp?band_id=1312&dept_id=9541&sfid=2 and it will ship in a couple of weeks. To get this album now you can go to MSN at http://music.msn.com/album/?album=49572059 and download it.
I have to tell you that that Ryan's talent far exceeds anything seen on the CBS show. Just released to stores in North America yesterday, Ryan's solo album Songs from the Eye of an Elephant is a fantastic collection of stripped down piano based songs that amaze and inspire you. This really is the best album I have heard in years and it is a complete gem from start to finish. You can find this album in stores, on amazon.com and at http://www.stonecrowrecords.com/main.php.
