The Jealous Cactus It sounds fresh and classic. The musicianship and production is top level, which would be impressive even if it wasn't all done by one person. Ryan Scott has mad talent. Favorite track: WHEELS.

The Hang Dynasty Ryan P Scott IS a spirit animal. This is the type of song writing the world needs right now. No BS. Less is Bess. Reminds me of a Hemingway quote about writing. “Big words don’t mean big emotions.” If Tom Petty had a love child with all of the Meters, then they rolled one up and rolled tape, that’s what this sounds like. Thanks Ry Bread, for doing you in front of us.
Luv Jim

Ps- the outro of Party at the Dancehall makes me feel like Meatloaf right before he lost three days of his life Favorite track: LOVE U LIKE THE SUN IN JUNE.

If I could have my way I’d take the path of least resistance But now that times have changed I’m counting on my own persistence I’ve kept my conscience clear My pride has never been conflicted And then u came along A joy I couldn’t have predicted I’m gonna love u when the party’s over I’ll love u like the sun in June I’m gonna love u like I can no other And u found me not a minute too soon When I was all alone I couldn’t close my eyes to listen That fever’d always come The questions of my own existence U made it clear to me Forgot about the cold statistic U came and set me free And still u ask if there’s a difference I’m gonna love u when the party’s over I’m gonna love u like the sun in June I’m gonna love u like I can no other And u found me not a minute too soon I’m gonna love u when the party’s over I’m gonna love u like the sun in June I’m gonna love u like I can no other We’ll be dancing all the way to the moon

Call it one of those days Nothin goin my way But a friend I did find And we drank all the wine So don’t u worry mama Everything’s gonna be fine Now tomorrow is here And the path has been cleared Got a smile on my face Cause I’m back in the race So don’t u worry mama Everything’s gonna be great I’m so happy to play And I’m glad that u came Intervention divine Came along just in time So don’t u worry mama Everything’s gonna be fine My luck will come back Everything’s gonna be fine My luck will come back No mama don’t u worry My luck will come back

WHEELS 03:05
Get your key start it up Put some light on the front Grab your tip from the jar Drop the brick on the floor Because u never really know Where the wheel’s gonna roll But then u get just what u wish for Or so I’ve been told I’ve got a trick to keep them worries from getting a hold u gotta Let em go Just can’t seem to relax Smoke a joint Take a bath Sit and try it again That don’t work Call a friend Because u never really know Where the wheel’s gonna roll But then u get just what u wish for Or so I’ve been told I’ve got a trick to keep them worries from getting a hold u gotta Let em go Spent it all Had a blast Now u need u some cash Run as fast as u can Nothin on but the rent But then u never really know Where the wheel’s gonna roll Because u get just what u wish for Or so I’ve been told I’ve got a trick to keep them worries from getting a hold u gotta Let em go Because u never really know Where the wheel’s gonna roll But then u get just what u wish for Or so I’ve been told I’ve got a trick to keep them worries from getting a hold u gotta Let em go

I see so many different faces But all the buildings look the same A strip mall full of fast-food places Shark attacks and hurricanes We got a plan for ya I hate to see u watching baby I hate to see u strain your eye Can’t see what everybody’s doing I still like to be surprised I still like to be surprised Big brother’s got your number baby He’s watching your computer screen He sees u when you’re grocery shopping He dialing in your whole routine We’ve got a plan for ya Cause the shit’s gonna hit the fan Not diet pills or TV dinners Gonna work the book and read the land Just blood and sweat we’re all beginners So stomp your feet and clap your hands Just stomp your feet and clap your hands I know it’s been a hard one baby We’re hanging on We’re getting by U have my heart My money, take it We still can make it if we try We still can make it if we try We still can make it if we try Not diet pills or TV dinners Gonna work the book and read the land Just blood and sweat we’re all beginners Just blood and sweat we’re all beginners So stomp your feet and clap your hands Just stomp your feet and clap your hands So stomp your feet and clap your hands Just stomp your feet and clap your hands

REAL THING 04:42
Gotta get your feet wet Gotta make a play I met somebody last night And I’m seeing her today When it comes to the question of soul Only takes me a moment to know I found the real thing I found the real thing Speak up and tell me What u really want to say Some might think that it’s too fast Can’t be any other way When it comes to the question of soul Only takes me a moment to know I found the real thing I found the real thing I found the real thing I found the real thing U know love Good love is so hard to find Heard of family values You’re the purest gold I’ve seen When I wrap my arms around u See how rich a man can be When it comes to the question of soul Only takes me a moment to know I found the real thing I found the real thing I found the real thing I found the real thing U know love Good love is so hard to find

ROLL ON BY 04:47
I’m keeping it cool Though u make me wanna cry sometimes Hold my tongue, it ain’t no use Just let it roll on by People’s words can get u down Even when u think they’ve crossed the line We all disagree sometimes Just let it roll on by Just let it roll on by Let it roll on by Evil everywhere u turn That devil’d trade u if you’d only sign Keep your soul, we can survive Just let him roll on by Just let him roll on by Devil keeps on trying Devil keeps on trying To get me down I’m keeping it cool Though u make me wanna cry sometimes All objections overruled Just let it roll on by Just let it roll on by Let it roll on by Who Who Talkin too fast Runnin right past I wanna make the feeling last

Got no money in the bank Wife has up and moved away All that weight u carry round Take a break and lay it down Ain’t no problem that can’t be solved With a little bit of lovin And a party at the dancehall I asked a friend what I should do She offered up her point of view Some like the drink Some like cocaine While others twist the night away Ain’t no problem that can’t be solved With a little bit of lovin And a party at the dancehall It’s Friday night, I just got paid Seven bills for seven days Get myself a bite to eat Get back up and move my feet Ain’t no problem that can’t be solved With a little bit of lovin And a party at the dancehall Ain’t no problem that can’t be solved With a little bit of lovin And a party at the dancehall Ain’t no problem that can’t be solved

Clouds are an illusion Here Then they’re gone The fever will break You’ll get to the answer Just go out and play Clouds are an illusion Here Then they’re gone Clouds are an illusion Here Then they’re gone Step up to the plate Just go out and get her There’s no time to waste The sooner the better Sunshine Good times Clouds blow away Sunshine Blue skies New summer days New summer days Rain Go away Rain Go away Come again another day Sunshine Good times Clouds blow away Sunshine Blue skies New summer days New summer days New summer days New summer days

Don’t have to understand to feel it Don’t have to see it to believe it Just listen, hear the angels sing it I’m in love Look what you’ve done to me I’m too excited to conceal it So many nights I tried to dream it The peace we seek We can achieve it Just gotta open up and breathe it I’m in love Look what you’ve done to me Wherever we land Everything will be cool We’ll figure it out So much better with two And I know we can, we can, we can Said I know we can, we can, we can Say goodbye to the blues All I needed was u Tell me how could I lose My dream came true I’m gonna love u Wherever we land Everything will be cool We’ll figure it out So much better with two And I know we can, we can, we can Said I know we can, we can, we can Say goodbye to the blues All I needed was u Tell me how could I lose My dream came true I’m gonna love u My dream came true Say goodbye to the blues All I needed was u Tell me how could I lose My dream came true I’m gonna love u My dream came true I’m gonna love u My dream came true Say goodbye to the blues I’m in love Look what you’ve done to me
