Ryan & Ragland – Red Like Our Room Used To Feel

Red Like Our Room Used To Feel” is many things. It is an intimate poetry performance from Ryan Van Winkle. It is an audial experience featuring new ambient noises from Ragland that will crawl up inside you. It is joy, memory and loss condensed into one musical soundscape. So, come, lay down, have a cup of tea, enjoy a snifter of port, close your eyes and be where you want to be…

Forest Records has released this album as a free download and as a tangible cd you can buy.

The CD is a sample of what it was like to visit my one-on-one poetry performance at the Hidden Door festival in Edinburgh on 30th and 31st January 2010.

We hope to do it again someday. In the meantime, if you want to see photos, my notes on the performance or fancy downloading my other cd (for free) visit the the new audio section of my website here.

Ragland made such amazing music such that I am not obliged to feel utterly embarrassed by my poems or my silly voice.

You can download and listen to the whole album by clicking on the album cover below. To prick up your ears please have a listen to opening track “The Flood”…
