Ryan Bingham: Fear and Saturday Night
Recorded mostly live with a brand new backing band FEAR AND SATURDAY NIGHT shows Bingham facing down his past with a poetic grace throughout. The lead single Radio is about coping with a darkness that does not want to let go, searching for a safe place to make sense of your life and the strength to stay on the right track through it all. Some of the most affecting moments on the album are in the harmonica-driven wistful waltz Broken Heart Tattoos, a song written to an unborn child, and in the title track, Fear and Saturday Night. Those hard-learned lessons, through both good times and bad, helped make Bingham the man he is today. FEAR AND SATURDAY NIGHT is the most authentic, personal, and deeply moving portrait of that man we have heard yet.
