Ryn Weaver At Neumos 7/17
Neumos, tucked in the heart of Capitol Hill, is the perfect venue for an act that is on the fast track to success. It’s indie enough to not lose the feeling of exclusiveness, and big enough to house a sizable crowd of pretentious music fans that “totally knew the band before they got big.”
Seamlessly nudging her way into the scene, singer/songwriter, Ryn Weaver, has rounded up a sizable following in a very short amount of time since she released her first single last summer and easily packed the room on a sweltering Seattle night in July. As soon as she stepped on stage, Ryn instantly captured the audience’s attention with her confident, yet cool demeanor. Starting out her set with just vocals, drum, and bass, you could really see and hear the tenacity and intricacies in her voice and her performance. From that point on, Ryn was all energy, perfectly in sync with her band, and had the crowd jumping and dancing throughout her entire set.
With a soft yet edge-y tone reminiscent of the sisters of Eisley, the float-y textures of Florence and The Machine, and the production quality of Lorde – Ryn Weaver creates a unique brand of alternative indie-pop that sounds fresh and familiar all at once.
