Product Description

Ryan Shaw went on a journey into America's cultural past and came back with a sound for today - and tomorrow. On This Is Ryan Shaw, this 26-year-old singer reinvents the music of the Golden Age of Rhythm & Blues - defined, in this case, as the years from 1960-1972. Without excessive showmanship or pointless over-elaboration, Ryan sings with a sense of passionate commitment that has nearly vanished from the American pop music landscape.

Amazon.com

Just when you thought the 21st century retro-R&B revolution was grinding to a sunken-hearted halt, Ryan Shaw comes along and revives the revivalist moment: This Is Ryan Shaw, the 26-year-old's phenomenal debut, dazzles not just because he can sing a song like Bobby Womack's "Lookin' for a Love" without letting the rear-view mirror leach him of his own soul, but because his originals--first single "Nobody," "We Got Love," and set closer "Over and Done"--convincingly replicate the classic sound of such forebears as Otis Redding, Sam Cooke, and Wilson Pickett. Here's a man who can plead, please, and play out love-struck dramas with his voice as though the '60s never ended; if his sound borrows heavily, it pays back what it owes with genuine contributions to the genre. Shaw's is real R&B without the raunch--a return to uplift too self-respecting and sincere to land on the retread pile. --Tammy La Gorce

Customer Reviews

Ryan is a great talent, singing with such soul.
B. Peterson
I found myself tapping my feet and be-bopping in my seat at my desk to more than one song!
Kelly Andrews
I highly recommend this for the Xmas stocking or surprise b'day gift.

What a voice. The first time I heard "Nobody" I thought I was on an oldies station. Ryan Shaw can belt the lyrics out with more soul than I've heard in a long time. He does make me think of Sam Cooke or Otis Redding, but honestly--he's himself and that's way beyond fine with me.

Shaw clearly demonstrates the old adage of RESPECT as well. There's no explicit language or situations that would prevent an Old School grandparent from introducing the kids to this music.

Went to the Ryman Auditorium to see John Legend last night. Expecting to see Corinne Bailey Rae open but she apparently canceled so they had this guy Ryan Shaw.

His guitar, bassist and drummer were great. Shaw belted out six songs and left the stage in front of a standing ovation. I did not know who he was before tonight, but I do now. He put on a good live show and had massive pipes to carry out the tunes.

Set list for Shaw:

"Lookin' for a Love"

"I Am Your Man"

"Nobody"

"We Got Love"

"Over and Done"

"I Found a Love

I met and performed in a wedding band with Ryan Shaw back in 2002 and I vividly remember being totally blown away by his powerfully soulful voice. I get called on a lot of gigs because my sound and style is reminiscent of the R&B of the 60's & 70's but this young man is the embodiment of all of the sweet soul and true raw grittiness of the genre. I saw him just this past Sunday morning on the Today Show and, he sounds even better than I remembered. To listen to him sing with that incredibly rangy voice and to experience the feelings he emotes in a song, takes you back to the days of when Rhythm and Blues was real & honest, not just a bunch of lecherous young bucks cussin' and pullin' at themselves. No, no. Ryan Shaw is real R&B like Sam Cooke, Solomon Burke, Jackie Wilson, Ray Charles & Wilson Pickett used to sing and you'd swear he's channeling all of them when you hear him sing. Ryan Shaw is real R&B that I can play for my children & grandchildren and say, this is real singing from the soul. GOD bless Ryan Shaw. I remember jokingly saying to him that he was going to take all the wedding date work from everybody and he replied that he wouldn't being doing that kind of work for long. I'm glad to see that he persued his dream and he's spreading true R&B so the world will know what it's really about.

Finally a young artist who knows what real soul music is all about. If you are into the Stax/Volt and Muscle Shoals sound of the 60's and early 70's run and get this CD. This is not a revival or retro, this is the real deal. Ryan shaw mixes new material with vintage Wilson Picket, Bobby Womack and Jackie Wilson so seemlessly you'd swear this album was recorded in '69 with Steve Cropper, Duck Dunn, Booker T. and Al Jackson Jr. providing the back-up. This is the cat they should have gone to for musical arrangements for "Dreamgirls". The only regret is his not including Sam Cooke's "A Change is Gonna Come", a song he does live, on the disc. Actually this disc deserves TEN stars, cause there ain't nothing like it. As Arthur Conley once asked "Do you like good music, that sweet soul music?" If your answer is a resounding "yes" then you've got to, got to, got to check out Ryan Shaw.

From the blog [...]:
Want some new music that's not filled with "B*&%$ and H@$"? You've got to check this young man out! Ryan Shaw is a 26 year old from Decatur, GA that will take you back to the days of sweet soul music with Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, and Sam Cooke. Great voice and slammin' retro tunes. I'm hoping he gets the air play he deserves on the so-called 'urban' stations.

The cd is a stable, midranger - a few new tunes by the artist, familiar standby's from Bobby Womack and Otis Redding. Right now I'm listening to Nobody, It's Over, and We Got Love. Sweet. Check him out, he's touring this summer with Joss Stone.
Now when you've finished checking this out, go tell yo' momma AND your daughter!

I saw Ryan Shaw open for Buddy Guy in Ann Arbor. Most of the crowd probably did not know who he was before the concert, but he left to a standing ovation. (Buddy did great too - he's a legend and a must see).

Ryan is a great talent, singing with such soul. He sings with such range and seems comfortable in several different styles. Some songs remind me of Memphis Stax (in the sytles of Sam & Dave, Otis Redding) of 60's Motown (Do the 45, I Found a Love), some like Keb'Mo (We got love), and some have a little funk (Nobody).

Tell your friends. Buy the album. See him live. You won't be disappointed.

A great talent like his should be appreciated by the masses.

I bought this CD after hearing the single "Nobody" one time. I figured even if the rest of the album wasn't great, that song was worth it. It just blew me away. But after I listened to the whole album, I realized that this guy was something special. If you're into real soul and R&B, this is a must-have. I can't wait for his next release. Highly recommended.

A co-worker recommended this CD and on the first listen I was hooked! I found myself tapping my feet and be-bopping in my seat at my desk to more than one song! I highly recommend it!
