Ryan Bingham

Ryan Bingham is an Oscar-winning singer-songwriter who was born in New Mexico but raised all across the Southwestern United States. Bingham set out on his own at a young age, shuffling from town to town and performing gigs at local no-frills bars. It’s this spirit of having done plenty of living early on that has informed the singer-songwriter’s jagged and weather-beaten vocals.

Bingham’s critically acclaimed debut album, Mescalito, won kudos from media outlets as varied as Rolling Stone, Esquire, and The Washington Post. His sophomore effort, Roadhouse Sun, solidified his reputation as a serious artist.

In 2010, Bingham’s song “The Weary Kind, which appeared on the soundtrack to the film Crazy Heart, earned him a Grammy, an Oscar, a Golden Globe, and the Americana Artist of the Year Award. The song also led to his collaboration with T Bone Burnett, who produced his third studio album, Junky Star, which drew critical acclaim. Bingham’s songwriting abilities shine on songs that seem poised to continue acing the test of time.

Inspired by one of the most important aspects of music - rhythm - this performance will experiment with different perceptions of time and "time-feel." Time is a concept, and it is how we perceive it that makes it what it is. From strict pulses to none at at all, these different perceptions of time in music will be performed through standard songs, original music, and improvisations.
