One of my favorites, the Ryan Montbleau Band, checked in with NPR last night on a segment that highlighted tracks from their new album, Heavy on the Vine. It serves as a great introduction to people who have never heard of the band and a nice reminder to those of us who have.
Check out the 23-minute NPR segment here.
The reggae-infused Songbird plays underneath a brief introduction of the band and fades into a lighthearted interview. Ryan dishes about riding the back of a U-Haul truck to a gig after the van broke down, demonstrating the humble roots of a band that has already played stadium arenas.
It's always nice to hear what Ryan and the boys have to say about their ever-growing careers, but it's always nicer to listen to them play: the band treated us to live performances of Stay, Slippery Road, Love Songs, and I Can't Wait.
Now that we are up to speed on the coolness of the RMB, we can all be properly jealous of this photo:
