“Mean It” By Terence Ryan

The Who: Terence Ryan (South Shore, MA)

The What: His 2015 Will Word & Hand EP was a 5-song glimpse into the life, drive and mind of Terence Ryan’s blue collar world. Where real life and creative life collide, the folkish fusion of indie rock and soul in the Massachusetts native’s music is pure reflection.

Ryan’s debut full length album, Don’t Panic, is due out in June and from it comes “Mean It” which boasts a bit of preeminence over the upcoming record. “‘Mean It’ was sort of the kick off to the whole creative process for Don’t Panic.” Ryan says. “First song I recorded for it. First on the tracklist. Video was the first thing I did when I returned back home from CA.”

So art imitates life in our new Video Of The Week as a deep and stellar R&B-flavored song frames a day in the life of warehouse Ryan.
