Australia-born, LA-based singer Ry Cuming, known as RY X, is coming to Baltics with his new album "Blood Moon", which is a musical compilation of unusual, intimate and versatile sensations.
Although RY X's latest album touches on fairly universal themes and talks about love, loss, passion, heartache, it successfully avoids clichés. Every word and phrase on the album has its own meaning. The Australian produced and engineered the album at his studio in Topanga, far in the Santa Monica Mountains. He lived a life of simple and absolute non-consumption, reminiscent of childhood and allowing him to enjoy every day.
The emotional intensity and depth of RY X's music is beautifully captured in the video for "A Thousand Knives".
Not only has the RY X recorded one new track with good friend and Icelandic electronic music legend Ólafur Arnalds, he's also collaborated with Drake himself this year and once produced an official remix for Rihanna.
Listen to "Sticky" from Drake album "Honestly, Nevermind", a track that was co-written and co-produced by RY X.
RY X grew up in a small village without internet on the edge of Australia by the ocean, listening to his father's records and trying out all the instruments available at home. Music is another element as important to him as air or water:
"The question I always ask myself is how my music makes me feel. If I feel like something doesn't sound right, I discard it."
"Soul-penetrating" purity of instruments and lyrics is an essential part of his music. Each work reflect what lives inside and is expressed through sounds. RY X's live performances are mesmerizing and breathtaking. The mood and experience the artists creates together with his band is indescribable and magical, so make sure to see him live in the Baltics!
