New album + videos/fall EU tour/July shows in New England

I am pleased to announce that I am joining forces with Knick Knack Records in Seattle, WA and CosiRecords in Oberhausen, Germany, to release my new album River Music on vinyl and digital formats this October. Tour dates will follow in the EU from October 25-November 12 with concerts in Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands and Italy. More detail to follow soon.

Here is a video of us playing "I'm Dissatisfied," as part of the River Music recording session at The Soul Shop in Medford.

And here is another video from a recent performance at the Charles River Museum of Industry with Debo Band's Danny Mekonnen. We did an unrehearsed, improvised set with Koushik Chakrabarty on tabla. For me, it was a thrilling experience. Have a look on YouTube.

Locally in New England, I will be playing 2 shows at the end of July with my friends Ted Drozdowski and Lloyd Thayer. We are doing a couple of "in the round" performances at Stubblebine Lutherie in Somerville MA and the Galactic Theatre in Warren, RI on July 27 and 28. Check out the event invite here.

And for those in Boston who are organized around mind/body wellness, you can find me playing my 22 string Chaturangui every Wednesday in Nicoline's class at Samara Yoga at 5:45 and also this month I'm also playing in class with Anna at ASANA on July 10 at 6:15.

In peace,


Ryan Lee Crosby
