"It's odd that my name is in the band name. We are very much a band and a collaborative effort, so it's misleading to have my name in front," Joey Ryan of Joey Ryan & the Inks
humbly admits. The lead singer and the rest of the Inks, Tim Dickson, Ryan Mach, and brothers Chris and Matt Mitchell, are crammed into a booth in the back of a very noisy Depot next door to First Ave. on a Friday night, yet they don't seem to mind the close proximity.
The band is very comfortable with one another, and that comfort is conveyed on their new EP, Pause
, set to release at the Cedar Cultural Center on Saturday.
