Ryan Star - "Orphans"
His music has appeared prominently in films such as P.S. I Love You and hit television shows like The Vampire Diaries, as well as the theme song to Lie To Me. Given his live-show prowess, he's been tapped to share the stage with many incredible artists, from Imagine Dragons to Bon Jovi to Maroon 5. His 2010 full-length major label debut, 11:59, landed at #10 on Billboard's Rock Albums Chart and #4 on the Tastemakers Chart. In 2012 Ryan’s hit "Stay Awhile" charted Top 30 at Hot AC radio and quickly amassed over 2 million YouTube views.
He's often called the "Darkhorse" or the "alt-rock Frank Ocean", because he has a diverse musical style and deeply touching lyrics. So give this guy a chance, I promise his music will hit you right in the feels.
So, today with all the feelings boiling over, I choose Ryan Star's "Orphans" as my, fight for yourself, give no credence to naysayers, lift yourself back up by the bootstraps, song for a, hotter than necessary, accept the new reality, we live here now, Tuesday.
