The Person

I'm Robert!

Learn more about me at ryi.me, or add me on Facebook.

I love meeting new people, and love to hear from fans. :)

Wife-Inspired Original
Hello there! I wrote a song for my wife back in May for her birthday, and it's roughly about how she takes up too much bed space and closes her eyes in pictures. Let me know what you guys think, and thanks again for listening as always. I'll have to turn these originals into an album soon.

Recent Covers!
Hey all, I recently finished a cover of "Stay With Me" by Sam Smith, and "Another You" by Brian McKnight. Check them out on youtube! Thanks again for listening, and I promise some originals will be coming out soon! :)

WOW. NEWS TWICE IN ONE WEEK.
Here's a new original, exclusively on youtube. And yes - I've completely gone against what I said a few days ago, that I'd be using soundcloud more. Oh well. Enjoy!

New Track - "Let Me Save You"
Hello everyone! It's been a while again, but I finally got around to producing a new track.



Take a listen, and let me know what you think.

On another note, I've started using soundcloud more than youtube - it's about the music, after all, and recording videos is really time-consuming. I have to take out my camera, reposition my microphone, and turn everything on. Could be I'm just lazy.

In any case, check out my soundcloud! I'll be posting more covers there, as well as any new tracks or drafts I produce.

Youtube!
I've started making youtube videos again - I forgot how much more fun singing and producing are when you don't have to worry about writing your own melodies and lyrics. I'm still working on originals, but I thought a few covers would be refreshing. Enjoy!

Individual Tracks + Soundcloud
I am decidedly terrible at managing social media. But in an effort to improve myself in this regard, I finally got a soundcloud: VISIT IT.

Whether or not I'll continue to maintain it is to be seen, but hopefully it provides some people easier access to my music outside of this website/purchasing.

In any case, sit tight! New tracks are coming out soon. I just keep getting distracted by things like Diablo 3.

Physical CDs
Physical CDs have arrived! It happened a while ago, but it's still exciting, no? Let me know if you want a copy.





Thanks to everyone who already bought my music. I'm very grateful. :) If you want one of these bad boys, let me know, and I'll hook you up. Only $5 to cover shipping/production costs.

Album Released!
The album has officially been released to the public! It's been distributed to a number of vendors, but I've decided I'll also make it available for free for friends who know about this site (no one else really comes here). Click the Get The Album link above this blog, and then click Download to get the zipped file. Feel free to distribute it freely, but the link will come down pretty soon, once I link the site to social media, and vendors...

It's entirely me - from the voice and instruments down to the production and mastering. So listen to it, while envisioning a small army of me standing around you, playing various instruments and managing the sound system. Or, you can just relax and enjoy it.

Album Finished & Submitted!

I've finally finished mastering and submitting 'Genre Drift' to CD Baby. The album is already available through a few online vendors. AWW YEA! The album has not officially been announced yet, so don't spread the news too widely.

I'll likely put it up for free download on this site soon, but if you can't wait, you can go get it on iTunes or CD Baby, or wherever else you can find it (I'm not sure where exactly it's been distributed yet). And let me know what you think! I'm always down to hear suggestions or feedback.

I still have to send physical copies around, and do some more logistical planning before telling everyone. Stay posted for more information on an official launch date. It should be within this week.

Check back for more updates. And thanks everyone for all the support!
