Hey guys! I can't believe today is the last day of 2012! What a year. I sincerely hope that your 2012 was incredible, but I hope 2013 will be even more amazing for you and yours!
2012 was a crazy and excellent year for Sleeping At Last... If montages were possible in email, I'd be all over that. But let's do a text montage instead...
2012 Sleeping At Last Highlights:
Went on 2 wonderful US tours (Huge thanks to Christina Perri & Jars of Clay for having me out!), Got to collaborate with one of my favorite folks in the world, Jon Foreman on his upcoming solo record, Got to co-write some songs with some of my dearest and most talented pals (David Hodges, Matt Hales, Mariah McManus, Mia Maestro and Angie Correa!), Had a few songs in a few TV Shows/Movie (Grey's Anatomy, So You Think You Can Dance, Bones, Fun Size!), Got to score 20 minutes of instrumental music for a NYC charity festival (feat. Foo Fighters, Neil Young, Black Keys!) called "Global Festival," and lastly, but not leastly, I Announced my upcoming project, "Atlas" - an ongoing series of EPs starting in January 2013!!
I'm so grateful for such a wonderful and encouraging year! And I couldn't be more thrilled to dive into the new year with "Atlas" - cannot wait for you to hear these new songs!!
Thank you SO much for such an incredible year, guys. I am so blessed to be able to do this. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart, for listening, for encouraging and for supporting me in so many ways throughout the years.
Happy New Year!! Farewell 2012! How lovely to meet you, 2013!
Tons o' love, Ryan - Sleeping At Last
