Ryan Bingham hails from Texas and is a Grammy Award-winning musician who defies easy classification, but often zeroes in on the American experience. He has received accolades including the American Music Association’s 2010 Artist of the Year, as well as an Oscar for his song “The Weary Kind” from the 2009 film Crazy Heart
. His music is a reflection of his life experiences, including the Cajun culture he experienced in western Louisiana and border songs of Mexican immigrants. His latest album, released in February 2019 is titled “American Love Song,” and addresses border politics. The new work was hailed by Rolling Stone
magazine as “a rolling blues-country workout awash in slide guitar, soaring gospel-roadhouse stomps and meditative folk fingerpicking that takes on his past with a cautious hope for the future.”
