the Additives's Profile

About me:Joe Ryan grew up listening to old country, put himself through college working at Buddy Guy's in Chicago, and has lived in more than a few states in the Union. This band arrangement finds a new home for long-time drummer Joey Werner. Pianist Sheila Bertoletti and bassist Dustin Pyka, having been classically trained, compliment the songwriting with smart arrangements adding subtle nuances. After completing a well-received solo trip to Ireland, Joe's live performance of "Baby We Can Work It Out" (recorded at Thomas Reads for On-The- Verge radio) and "Annamosity" (the first single off the new "Back In Bridgeport" EP) were released to Dublin's Phantom Radio 92.5 and have garnered good reviews. The band has been invited to play a series of shows in the U.K. during the summer of 2008.
