The defining feature Ryan Downey's music is his voice, a jawdropping amalgamation of Leonard Cohen and Bill Callaghan by way of a mid-century crooner. Running is a glorious and sparsely constructed 21st century folk gem, not a note detracts from Downey's rich baritone as he sings a song cycle of humour and pathos. Self-analysis, sex, love and modern life.

Deftly plucked nylon string guitar, mesmerizing baritone, pitter-patter electric beats, electric guitar flourishes and rich double bass; Downey has created a musical world unlike any that you've heard. This is as close to emotional, musical and perfection as you're likely to hear on a record this year. Pure magic.

Produced by Steve Hassett (Luluc) and recorded in both New York and Melbourne, Running reveals Ryan Downey as a timeless talent. An incredible debut from an artist capable of balancing cheek and sincerity, classicism and swagger and grandeur and restraint all within a single, composed breath.
