Bye Bye Social Media

Posted on August 13, 2018 in music, Music Business, Opinions, Updates

Despite all of this, I used to love being on social media, and I spent countless hours building myself up on Facebook and Twitter.  Circumstances caused me to move away from Smart Phones into more basic stuff.  And as I’ve done that, I’ve honestly enjoyed the direction of my life.  When I go to restaurants, airports, or peruse the sidewalks of my small town, I become grateful that I’m not one of the Walking Dead who are buried in their Instagram feed.  I enjoy the fact that, when I go to see some beautiful morsel of creation, that I don’t get distracted by snapping a quick selfie and seeing how fast I get to 50 likes on my post.  I can be in the moment.

But I guarantee you I'd love to see you at my show this next weekend sitting on that little patio and listening to my songs. I hope you introduce yourself. I hope you ask where I'm performing next. I hope you keep in touch.  These are the things I hope for.Continue Reading…

About Brent Ryan

I have always been drawn to baseball movies. There is something about the depth of tradition to the game of baseball that brings an almost supernatural element to the sport.
