Featured Artist(s): Ryan Honeycutt

Ryan Honeycutt is a young indie singer-songwriter from Texas, USA. While my first impression of him was a resemblance to Jason Mraz, he also drew some comparisons to others, including an early John Mayer.

Does he wear his heart on his sleeve? Ryan paints a very emotional picture of relationships, particularly broken ones (give "Different Shade of Blue" a listen). Why is it so easy to empathize with love's pain? Is it our own memories or rather our hopes that connect us with the hurt?

A cynic may be tempted to discount these songs and feelings; and yes, Ryan is at the beginning of the road. But I feel the honesty he shows in the lyrics and presentation defies any such disparagement.

Check out Ryan Honeycutt's and MySpace pages for more streamable tracks and updates.
