Ryan Lee Crosby is unlocking "a new road to both a global audience and personal awakening with inspiration in (the blues.)" -Michael Marotta, Vanyaland With an intercontinental band, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Ryan Lee Crosby blends essences of American folk-blues and North Indian raga into meditative songs of impermanence, compassion and joy.

Crosby's music is a pleasing mix of improvised and composed material, performed on traditional and modern instruments.

Through his recordings and performances, Crosby hopes to inspire peace, openness and respect - for tradition, for culture, for each other and for one's self.

River Music, Crosby's sixth full-length album, will be available on LP and CD on 10/10/18, co-released by Germany's CosiRecords Schallplatten and Seattle's Knick Knack Records.

The result of years of study and practice, River Music integrates blues from the hill country of North Mississippi with textures of North Indian Hindustani classical raga music.

Ryan Lee Crosby has been nominated for two Boston Music Awards and was named "Best Singer/Songwriter" in the 2006 Boston Phoenix/WFNX Radio Music Poll.

He composed and performed the film score for the award-winning documentary Racing the Rez (2012, broadcast nationally on PBS).

Crosby tours Europe annually and select US regions. He currently lives in Medford, Massachusetts and performs regularly in the greater Boston area.
