Sisters - August, 2012
Photo session today with three lovely sisters. I almost died of heat stroke but in the end the shoot went amazing, I think they’ll be happy with the outcome. This is more of a personal shoot for them so this is all I will be posting just wanted to share a little how my day went. Take care my good friends.
The Musician (A Self Portrait) Ryan N. Escalante - July, 2012
Unfortunately I am still young and the world is very old and it will be here long after I am gone and I will die not knowing all of it and it not knowing any of me.

Lover - Original Song By: Ryan Escalante
I only see your face
I want you next to me
Will you ever notice me
And will I ever be
I pass you in the halls
And I hear you boyfriend call
I can see the truth in you
But this life you don’t have to choose
And does he even notice you
When you walk into the room
But I’m with you in my dreams
So I will never be
This time I’ll take a chance
And I will ask you to dance
I’ll hold on tight to you
That’s when you’ll know its true
That you want me too
When we kiss beneath the moon
And I will take your hand
Now I finally am
Anonymous asked: I'm glad to hear that u have already begun work on your 4th album as I'm sure many others are as well. so tell us, Ryan, what kind of direction will this album be taking? in what ways will it differ from your previous work in "Self Portrait" and "Phoenix" and as the album cover and title implies will their be any cohesive theme to the golden era of music and recording that existed in the age of the Phonograph?
Thank you. This new album will be in the direction of really just the feel of old vinyls & phonographs. I wanted to bring back simplicity and classy approach to a whole album. Of course being me you’ll never know what genre it can be or kind of sound; overall I want a vintage sound rich with the soul of a different era.
Songs about love, sorrow, places, people, things; with simple words and verses. I got the idea just from my love of a time decades back. I’ve always been into the 20s-70s but I wanted to really just catch the simplicity like I mentioned that we hear a lot from the 20s to about the late 50s.
Being the sort of storyteller I am, I always loved writing about experiences and things I maybe never had but would have loved to. I think my knowledge of music really dates back, and can be used to my advantage.
I hope you all will enjoy this next album as much as I will creating it.
P.S. If you havent already heard my new song ‘Good Gal’ go have yourself a listen followers! It’s located on my page; or just play on the streampad player located below my page.
