Metts Ryan & Collins

Metts Ryan & Collins

If your idea of a real rock band for the 21st century is one that blends the swagger and bluesy elements of classic bands like The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and Humble Pie, alongside more recent bands like The White Stripes, Black Keys and Rival Sons, then let me introduce you to the power trio from Portland Oregon - Metts Ryan & Collins.
Metts Ryan & Collins are: Geoff Metts (vocals/guitar), Dain Ryan (bass/vocals) and Mike Collins (drums/vocals). All three members of the band are veterans of the Portland music scene and individually have an impressive list of accomplishments under their belt. Together they've created a buzz in the Pacific Northwest playing sold-out shows and featured performances on music showcases "Northwest Roots", "Portland Radio Project", "PDX Spotlight" and the international travel show "Next Stop". In addition, their song "Oregon" has been featured during the home games of the NBA team The Portland Trailblazers.


Their self-titled debut, was recorded in Portland, OR using old-school techniques and gear - loud and live to analog tape in one big room. "We wanted to capture the band in a great sounding studio and concentrate on making the best use of the fewest tracks", says singer/guitarist Geoff Metts. "Everybody has access to digital recording and limitless tracks, they can quantize them and auto tune them, but the result often sounds stale. We went the other way recording live to tape capturing the highest fidelity tracks with as few overdubs and edits as possible". MRC took the analog idea further by releasing the music on vinyl records as well as discs and downloads.


This is a chance to see the band in an intimate setting playing the songs the way they wrote them...on acoustic guitars over drinks. Come on down, have a drink and soothe your soul with new songs from this bluesy rock and roll trio.
