Ryan Bingham - Wakarusa Music Festival

2008 Artist Lineup

Ryan Bingham

Lurching in places, wheezed in others, Mescalito is a series of torn pages, broken people and those just holding their breath hoping to get out alive… Compelling listening to the highest sense. – American Songwriter The 25-year-old Texas singer/songwriter has found himself rubbing elbows with Ryan Adams and Willie Nelson as part of the Lost Highway roster, and now he’s hoping to measure up to some high expectations with his first-ever album. – MTV.com Bingham talks like he sings – with a whiskey-and-cigarette throat that screams “hard living”. Hard in a way that can make a 25-year-old sound like a 50-something Tom Waits… – Texas Music Magazine Mescalito (Lost Highway) arrives with a bushel of expectations, and it doesn’t disappoint. With a voice worn weary far beyond his 26 years, Bingham sings what he knows: Both a boyhood marked by one eviction after another and a career as a bull rider on the Southwest rodeo circuit seem to inform his every word. – Texas Monthly
