2022 predictions: LA musical artists to watch with Ryan LeVine

If Los Angeles singer/songwriter Ryan LeVine isn’t on your radar yet, he’s about to be. A spellbinding crooner and author of Horrifying Heartaches, LeVine’s debut EP Good things to remember just released and offers a raw look at the wreckage of the last years of the artist’s life. The road to these five transcendent songs began in 2018, when a series of personal and professional relationships fell apart, leaving LeVine stunned and broken. Without a clear path forward, he made the difficult but necessary choice to sit with these uncertain feelings – the result of which constitute the thematic growths of Good things to remember.

Songs like “You Don’t Hold The Cards Anymore” and “Signs” fully showcase LeVine’s evolution as an individual and artist, invoking his cutting songwriting and anthem blend of folk and rock. The EP not only shows the depth of LeVine’s introspection, but also his clear-headed ability and willingness to be so transparent about some of the toughest times in his life so far. It’s this ravenous honesty that gives the guitar’s sonorous, tumultuous folk pieces Good things to remember such a piercing brilliance.

LeVine himself is no newcomer, as the singer-songwriter had already spent seven years and two major label deals as the frontman for Wildling. But without a doubt, LeVine is now well ahead of this part of his music career and with the release of Good things to remember its reintroduction is in progress.

Good things to remember is the most important music I’ve released to date,” Levine said of the album. “It feels like both a high point and a recovery from the past decade. A decade spent searching, reaching for something I couldn’t get my hands on, a sound, words, a voice… I won’t say I found it, because I think I I will always search, but today, I recognize myself more intimately than ever in these songs.
