He’s never killed a man or robbed a bank but unassuming, bowtie-loving Ryland Moranz is certainly, most definitely, a dangerous man. Look out! He’ll fill your ears with fast and furious banjo picking, songs about ne’er-do-wells and beautiful worlds and, if you buy him a shot, he might just tell you a few tales of what it’s like to be on the road as a central Leeroy Stagger bandmate. Moranz is a multi-instrumentalist-storyteller from a most musical southern Alberta family and he’s not afraid to use the many implements in his arsenal. Guitar, banjo, harmonica, mandolin, accordion, keyboards; whatever it takes to unclasp your locks and sneak those disarming songs and astute insights past your sleepy sentinels, Ryland’s brought it. Careful - this one’s aiming right between your eyes.
