Originally from the Deep South of the States, Ryan Bingham received his first guitar as a gift at the age of 16 and soon began performing in clubs in Fort Worth, Texas. After two self-produced EPs he was spotted by Lost Highway Records, who signed him and released his first proper album with The Dead Horses, "Mescalito' (2007), produced by former Black Crowes guitarist Marc Ford, with whom the singer-songwriter and his band also collaborated on the subsequent 'Roadhouse Sun"(Lost Highway Records, 2009).
The real public success came a few years later, however, when Bingham participated in the making of the award-winning film Crazy Heart (2009): in addition to acting in a small part, the singer-songwriter wrote two songs for the soundtrack, including the theme song 'The Weary Kind', produced by the legendary T Bone Burnett, which in 2010 obtained a Golden Globe and an Oscar for Best Original Song, a Grammy Award and the title of Song of the year at the 9th Americana Music Association Awards. The subsequent albums "Junky Star" (Lost Highway Records, 2010) "Tomorrowland" (Axster/Bingham Records, 2012) and "Fear And Saturday Night" (Axster Bingham Records, 2015), co-produced by Jim Scott (Tom Petty, Foo Fighters, Wilco), was well received by audiences and critics alike and established Bingham as a new spokesman for the Americana genre.
He is now ready to return with a new album entitled American Love Song, a creative work with personal and cultural references, recorded between Austin and Los Angeles. The album deals with various themes dear to Bingham's heart. In each of the 15 tracks, we find a piece of the artist's life, from his early years as a touring performer to autobiographical reflections and dedications to the women who influenced him artistically and otherwise, including his mother, all set to electric guitar and blues riffs, hypnotic looped notes and poignant sounds typical of American songwriting.
