Editors’ Notes

Raspy voiced Ryan Bingham fills his second album with gusto, grit and groove. Mark Ford of Black Crowes fame mixes in timeless old-school production values, so Roadhouse Sun isn’t a huge departure from its predecessor Mescalito, but the lyrics are noticeably stewed in more political angst. A 12-string Rickenbacker jangle introduces “Dylan’s Hard Rain,” a song that contemplates the man’s 1962 song. “Country Roads” is raw Texas country rock loaded with more hooks than a tackle box. Rest assured that Bingham’s not just some twenty-something donning a western shirt and playing musical cowboys. He grew up in bucolic Texas but lived alone since his mid-teens when he worked as a ranch hand. He learned to play guitar from a mariachi neighbor — shortly after which he began playing the rodeo circuit where he often slept in the back of his truck when not couch surfing between boarder towns. A true product of hard living, the fevered, distorted twang of songs such as “Endless Ways” can make Drive-By Truckers sound like Conor Oberst.

Ryan Bingham and the Dead Horses do not get the commercial attention they deserve. Today's country music is nothing compared to what Ryan Bingham continues to put out.

Americana singer/songwriter Ryan Bingham was raised in rural Texas, where years of hardscrabble ranch work and rodeo competitions would later lend a sense of authenticity to his music.

It was during those treks that he began entertaining friends with the guitar, an instrument he'd learned at the age of 17 from a mariachi neighbor....
