Ryan Van Slooten released his first solo album six years ago, but has been a part of the local music scene for more than 15 years. His music brings together a blend of acoustic power-pop and alternative rock, with catchy hooks, chiming guitars, lush arrangements and heart-on-sleeve lyrics. He is at work on his fourth studio album, the follow up to 2013’s <i>Victory March</i>, with a band made up of Jacob Jonker on guitar, Tom Berrigan on bass, Mat Milinkovich on drums and Erin Aldridge on violin.
