“[Ryan Keberle] is, at heart, an excellent arranger and an underrated soloist of contagious creativity, capable of making everyone feel at home” – Britt Robson, WonderingSound.com
I am thrilled to announce that my new record, Into the Zone, is officially released TODAY! I am so excited to share this music with you all and couldn’t have done it without the help of some very special people in my life.
I’d like to thank my band – Mike Rodriguez, Jorge Roeder, and Eric Doob – for their unsurpassed musicality, dedication and guidance. Thanks to Camila Meza for her willingness to indulge the learning curve that is writing for voice and her soulfully honest musicianship. Thanks to Scott Robinson for inspiring me to strive for true musical spontaneity and to embrace both the heart and the brain when it comes to making music. Thanks to Dave Douglas and Greenleaf Music for believing in this music. Thanks to Chris Allen at Sear Sound and Alex Venguer who captured the music beautifully giving it depth and balance. Thanks to Tyler McDiarmid who made the music shimmer. Thanks to Maddy Sturm who, as she has done for all of my records, translated the music into beautiful imagery and color. Thanks to Matt Merewitz and Fully Altered Media for their support and help in navigating the 21st century jazz industry. Thanks to all my family and friends and, most importantly, to the person who keeps me honest, not just in my musical life but in everything that I do, my incredible wife, Erica.
