Ryan Adams :: My Favorite Artists/Bands

Ryan Adams :: My Favorite Artists/Bands

I was in Michigan in the middle of a deadline at work when I first heard Ryan Adams. A friend of mine who I can credit with introducing me to some of my all-time favorite artists and bands, time and again, shared the song Harder Now That It’s Over, and soon after, Sylvia Plath. I remember playing both songs over and over and over that day, the melancholic melodies of both songs soothing my overtired and overwhelmed nerves. I recall doing a frantic search via one of those popular music sharing sites of the early 00’s (was it Kazaa then? I think this was post-Napster), and then going out and buying Gold that weekend. After that, it is a bit of a blur as to what came next for me and Ryan’s music because a part of me feels like his music has always been in my life. I am not sure there is another artist that makes me feel things the way he does, nor any other artist that has so many memories that I associate with his songs.
