Dizzy American, an independently
recorded full-length album under the name Ryan Rebo. He began working on the album in August of 2008 and Dizzy American was completed in January of 2009. The album originated as a bedroom recording project in his home in Montana, and later moved to a private studio space in a beautiful valley surrounded by Montana mountains. The scenery from the studio was a great source of inspiration as he pieced together each lyric and instrument in the lengthy multi-tracking process.
The album took six months from start to finish, with many coffee-driven nights, mostly in solitude. A few guest musicians came to visit, adding their various instrumental parts, including violin, glockenspiel, acoustic piano and drum tracks. After Ryan mixed Dizzy American, he sent the album to New York to be mastered by Fred Kevorkian (Ryan Adams and Rufus Wainwright).
A recent review by Justin Wayne, a UK based radio show host, says of Dizzy American, “...Almost perfect in its composition; both in the timing and in the music.”
