Rhyan Sinclair & All the Little Pieces / Press

“But as (Rhyan) Sinclair took the ghost walk, hearing about how Fisher's spirit supposedly still haunted the jail, it sparked the idea for an album. She saw visions of Fisher wandering through the night within the walls of that jail, doomed to pay for her crimes forever. The story, told on All the Little Pieces' new album, The Legend of Lavinia Fisher, fit well with the haunting acoustic folk Sinclair had been writing, laced as it was with Appalachian accents and her mournful vocal wail. The concept, which takes the listener from the perspective of a modern-day traveler back through time into Lavinia's mind, is effectively expressed in the video for "Lavinia's Song": A gallery of woozy male travelers succumb to Fisher's drugged tea as she fixes an icy glare at the camera, all while Sinclair's ghostly cry echoes in the background.”

“All the Little Pieces has a new album called The Legend of Lavinia Fisher. This is a concept album that was inspired by a ghost tour the band took while they were performing in Charleston in 2016. You probably know that the story is that of Lavinia Fisher who was hung in the early 1800’s and is thought to be one of the nation’s first serial killers. The album was nominated for Album of the Year at the Lexington Music Awards.”

“In April, Sinclair, 15, with her Lexington-based rock band All The Little Pieces, was chosen to perform at the Cooper River Bridge Run. That night, the band was led though the city of Charleston on a ghost walk. “It was pretty crazy that we were awake enough to go on a ghost walk that night,” she said. “I think it was just meant to be.” On the ghost walk, the band was told the story of Lavinia Fisher, who according to some legends was America’s first female serial killer. She and her husband, John Fisher, owned an inn in South Carolina in the early 1800s. Travelers who stopped at the Six Mile Wayfarer’s House were poisoned by a tea concocted by Fisher. They were then robbed, and some of them reportedly disappeared. Lavinia and John Fisher eventually were convicted of highway robbery and were hung on the same day in 1820. This haunted tale was the inspiration behind All The Little Pieces’ third album, which was released this fall. Read more here: http://www.kentucky.co”

"All the Little Pieces released its debut album, If You Fall, in 2013. The album was delightfully schizophrenic, using a foundation of alternative rock to hopscotch to elements of country, blues, Americana and jazz from track to track. Now, with the release of the band's second album, Broken Little Soul, All the Little Pieces has gelled even more and is finding a signature sound, and Rhyan is crafting lyrics that are less abstract, more personal and take on emotions.

“Only 13, And a Music Veteran spotlightRhyan Sprague of Lexington realized a life-long dream last summer when she played a gig in Nashville, at a club called 12th & Porter. “I fiiiinally got to play Nashville,” Rhyan said, stretching out the word to emphasize how long she has waited. She was all of 12 at the time. Yes, she is a precocious young woman. All of 13 now, the homeschooled teen started singing as a 5-year-old, wrote her first songs when she was 8 and performed with an adult band when she was 9.”

"All the Little Pieces was one of the best bands on my show all year. Their unique band members and style of music make them both fun to be around and an absolute treat to listen to." - Nate C. Merritt of Morehead Today
