Ryan Langlois

A barstool balladeer.
You can see the joy and energy crackle through his veins like electricity.

His country/roots/rock EP, Light > Dark, also captures this exhilaration. With achingly honest lyrics, rich melodies, and a ruggedly soulful voice that may be "a little out of tune," as he admits on a track called "Perfectly Imperfect."(a subtle yet snappy song - about trying to come to terms with being imperfect.)

Light > Dark isn't his first album, but it's his first as himself. As a 38-year-old husband and father who eats peanut butter with a spoon. As a diehard fan of Springsteen, Cash and Prine. As a barstool balladeer who can turn ordinary moments into lessons in wisdom and grace.

It took 15 years for Langlois to get to this point as an artist(he didn't pick up a guitar until he was 22 years old). Along the way, he's experienced highs and lows — including failed Canadian Idol auditions, national success with the Boom Chucka Boys, the break up that followed, and bouts of severe anxiety and depression.

He appears determined to embrace where he is and who he is, unapologetically.

"I want to make music for people who've been through s*%t and are still standing." - RL
