Ryan's first CD, Open All Night, is the long-awaited companion to his live show. The album is a statement of Ryan's history, and in it Ryan takes all the diners, gas stations, smoky bars, and side streets that he's come across and extracts the human element, drawing the listener in with the questions and emotions that these places resonate.

Delivered with Ryan's inspired guitar playing and dynamic presentation, Open All Night (voted Best Local CD of 2005 in the RI Motif reader's poll) proves what has been exciting audiences at Ryan's live performances for years.
