Introducing Bridget Rian who is set to release her debut EP “Talking to Ghosts” on July 16th. Rian choosing the title, because “in every song I am either talking to someone who has died, my past self, or talking about ghosts. There are also some old, interesting family stories about me as a baby talking to ghosts… so it’s a topic close to my heart.” A dark and mysterious collection, Rian will keep you guessing what’s next. Leading the EP are the tracks “Type of Girl,” challenging societal gender expectations, and “Trailer Park Cemetery,” a commentary on life and death. Based in Nashville, the EP was recorded at The Smoakstack and produced by Paul Moak. Fans of Ingrid Andress and Kacey Musgraves will enjoy her unique sound, a blend of indie rock, alternative, pop, and country.
Growing up in Long Island, Bridget found music after her mom bought her a guitar for her 10th birthday. She also learned how to play the piano. In high school, Bridget took up music classes when her choir teacher showed her badass female singer-songwriters, Bridget reflecting “it really started to develop my taste and become basically addicted to songwriting. High school was a hard time for me, so songwriting was really a way for me to process my emotions.” A performer at heart, Bridget enjoys the intimate feel of connecting with an audience and interacting with fans after the show who are able to relate to her stories. Music for Bridget really is therapy.
In the fall of 2020, Rian signed with Lady Savage MGMT & PR and will be releasing several singles leading up to her full EP release. Follow @bridget_rian on Instagram and visit www.bridgetrian.com to subscribe to her newsletter.
