Ryan Beattie recently released the latest Himalayan Bear album called "Hard Times". I had the opportunity to speak with him on the eve of his latest tour. Ryan has a self described "fetish for reverb". I told him how much I appreciate what that does to the overall vocal sound of "Hard Times". He told me about recording a majority of the album at The Last Resort and how that it added to the feel of the record. We also talked about his influences, and the music scene in his hometown of Victoria BC. Ryan also started the critically acclaimed band Chet, and he plays guitar in Frog Eyes. You can visit Ryan at and catch him on tour. Please check out the new album, as well!
