I'm Going On Tour With My Dad
I've learned a lot about being a MUSICIAN: OUT ON THE ROAD in the last few years, but the MOST IMPORTANT bit is this:
IT'S ABOUT THE PEOPLE YOU ARE WITH!
In that spirit, I'm proud to announce that I'm headed out on tour with MY DAD!! That's right, the maestro of mellow, himself:
We'll be performing our original songs together with SPECIAL FATHER-SON ARRANGMENTS. This is going to be so much fun, you guys! We can't wait to see you.
‘Music like an Island Breeze,’ best describes Elliott Ranney, a Folk-Jazz singer/songwriter performing finger style on classical guitar. His focus spans the genres of Bossa/Samba, The Cool School and contemporary Folk-Pop music. Ranney follows his bliss with original compositions inspired by Tom Jobim, Michael Franks, Tom Waits and Steely Dan, to name a few.
Ranney’s two commercially released albums; an Aging Sailor’s Dream (2001) and Bellevue Shuffle (2013) showcase the variety of music he has gravitated to. In 2012, Inpartmaint, Inc re-released An Aging Sailor’s Dream on the Rip Curl Records label based in Tokyo, Japan.
Mandolinist and singer, Bryan Ranney has traveled across the country on the ‘Not A Ukulele’ Tour, selling-out venues, winning media attention, and delighting listeners with his catchy, original brand of alternative-folk music. Ranney is captivating as a solo act or leading his band of skilled improvisors. Brought up in the hard-knock Saint Louis music scene, Ranney is a fine representative of the vibrant, melting-pot, americana-culture of acoustic blues, hippie-bluegrass, and river-town roots music that pervades the region. A truly gifted performer, Ranney seduces his audience with simple melodies, beautiful phrasing and a hypnotic groove. The characters that inhabit his songs can be dark and complex, but the poetry that renders them is genuine and unembellished. In concert, Bryan Ranney will warm your heart and leave you buzzing long after the final applause.
