Ryan David Orr / Press

"Great, distinctive voice...worthy of top marks"

Stuart Epps, producer (Oasis, Led Zeppelin, Elton John) - review of the band Alan Smythy and the Stockholm Syndrome

"...a force to be reckoned with in this music world"

"The music is timeless, while Orr’s penchant for finding the right word will have listeners swooning"

"Ryan David Orr has a warm, beautiful voice with which he intimates feelings of sorrow or joy...similar to that of Chris Martin (Coldplay), Damien Rice, or Ryan Adams."

“...refreshingly complete lyrically & musically... it's as if the music just magically happens...”

C. Joseph Gough - producer/engineer

“When I heard Ryan sing it was as if I were in the anachronistic zone, a very sweet dream... ”

Bryant L. Clifford - poet/actor

"Orr's weathered voice is a cross between Peter Gabriel and Eddie Vedder."

Mac McDonald - GO! Monterey County Weekly Entertainment

"Tender, powerful songwriting. Ryan will take you right into the moment with him & connect his heart to yours."

John Popper - frontman for Blues Traveler

"Ryan David Orr's 'Vermilion'is a great acoustic folk rock album similar to Dave Matthews and early John Mayer...'Vermilion' is a must listen...."
