Trenton CD Release Show with Myzica and Farro
“I had a dream that I died unexpectedly,” he begins, “right around the time the record was being mixed. And I woke up laughing because, in the dream, as I was dying, the only thing I was thinking about was, ‘Oh, shit. What if no one gets to hear this music?’”
As fruitless as the stress-induced fever dreams of Ryan Courtney (otherwise known as Trenton) turned out to be, they were only a manifestation of what really drives him to write material in the first place: the desire to help others cope through music. And considering the Nashville songwriter’s rough past, the motive is only natural.
“I’ve been through a lot of darkness,” he muses. “I think it’s safe to say I’ve been through more darkness than most 27 year old suburban-raised guys, yet I’ve somehow come out of it all still thankful for the things I’ve experienced. Music has helped heal me in so many different ways. I just want to be able to make songs that do the same for other people.”
