Ryan Star is a fantastic talent, and one more people should have heard of! The passion and emotion Ryan puts into his songs is amazing, and here, on a collection of songs recorded by the man himself without any polish more so than ever. I like many others, discovered Ryan on Rock Star: Supernova
and was blown away by his vocal range and ability.
'Songs from the Eye of an Elephant' really captures his songs, something hard to do, as these are the songs as they were originally recorded in Ryan's house, and it adds to the effect immensely. Hearing just Ryan with a piano or accoustic guitar, the way the songs were written is fantastic.
Without being over-produced the songs are raw, and this aids the songs and particularly, Ryans awesome voice. You can hear Ryan clear his voice or stamp his feet on the ground when playing and this makes you really feel like you are there with him!
I can't recommend this album enough, take a chance, you won't be disappointed! The CD actually contains 20 tracks, including 'Back of your Car', made famous when Ryan was a finalist on Rock Star: Supernova -
