ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
For over 30 years, Jimmy and Johnny Ryan have honed their guitar chops, songwriting style, arranging skills and production expertise to a razor's edge. Like fine wine, they just keep getting better with time. The proof can be found on their latest release, BLUE MARBLE. It picks up where their GRAMMY-nominated 3rd release, Legacy, left off. It has been two years in the making, and the result was well worth the wait. With this release, they have quite simply succeeded in not only redefining, but reinventing the genre of double lead guitar. If that sounds like an outrageous claim or idle boast, there is a very easy way to test it. Just listen to BLUE MARBLE. It's that simple. That experience will remove any doubt whatsoever as to the truth contained in that statement - that The Flyin' Ryan Brothers are the reigning masters of double lead guitar. Period.

BLUE MARBLE is their best sounding and most creative project to date, and there are more soaring harmony leads and virtuosic twin guitar interplay than ever before. While maintaining that "classic" Flyin' Ryan Brothers stylistic diversity and sound, several different exotic instruments and ethnic percussion were incorporated into the mix to entice the ears and stir the soul. The result is a sound that is distinctly more mature and progressive, yet deeply rooted in classic hard rock with an unmistakable retro vibe.

Returning on BLUE MARBLE are the incredible talents of bassist-extraordinaire Bill Kopecky and monster drummers Johnny Mrozek and Bob Behnke. Johnny and Bob once again put their thunderous and groovacious drum styles to work, laying the rhythmic foundation with taste, power and chops to spare. Johnny also played all of the additional percussion, and his sense of rhythm, timing and interpretive skills are nothing less than spectacular. And what can be said about two-time WAMI "Bassist of the Year" Bill Kopecky? His musicality and virtuosity are featured prominently on every track, and his artistic contributions have had a profound impact on the project. If that isn't enough, he also plays sitar and tanpura! Check out "Baghdad" and "Gaza" for a taste of his jaw-dropping talent on these exotic instruments. The world-class mix of the great Chris Djuricic and pristine mastering by GRAMMY-winner Trevor Sadler provide the finishing touches to this sonic masterpiece.

BLUE MARBLE is universal in its appeal and transcendent in its impact. It is an incredible musical journey that will take you to many different places - real and mythical - on our spaceship Earth. Every song is truly a world in itself. Once again, The Flyin' Ryan Brothers raise the musical bar and push the creative envelope further and further with every project. Experience BLUE MARBLE - a sophisticated, richly diverse, finely-crafted musical tapestry brimming with passion, fire and soul. It qualifies as a genuine, modern-day classic.

Oh wow
I'm a Guitar player, for about as long as the Brothers here, and if i had to sum it up in one word, it would be TONE,.....or better yet, tones....these guys jump genres , breaking all the rules of "new Radio" changing lanes and taking us all on a rollercoaster ride of pure guitar Heaven.....Tasty licks and great songs....of course, with Wishbone Ash as an influence, they have to be good...but they take dual guitars to a new level....
