Holding true to his restless nature, Ryan Marshall Lawhon under the alias Mating Ritual is currently on his winter tour “How You Gonna Stop It?” This Wednesday, February 1, the producer-songwriter will make a stop in The Central Saloon.
Another genre-bender, Lawhon records what he calls post-genre pop. He pushes the boundaries of songwriting and production, with an untraditional yet easily-digestible sound. After four #1’s on Hype Machine and topping the Spotify viral charts with his self-titled EP, he has been working on his debut LP, How You Gonna Stop It? Scheduled for a two-part release on January 24 and April 25, the record wrestles with the significance of life and our place in the universe—and all while keeping his distinctive vocals at the forefront. Recorded over a two year period, the album holds dynamic in influences and sounds, a demonstration of the artist’s post-genre perspective on music.
When: Wednesday, February 1, 8:30pm doors
Where: The Central Saloon (207 1st Ave S)
Tickets start at $10
