About the Album...

This album is a sonically rich and layered collection of 12 original songs. It's labelled an "Americana mashup", a "tasty musical stew."

"Press Play" borrows a little rhythm and blues from Stax Records, nods to Arthetha Franklin's gospel roots and blends in the expressive harmonies of the Everly Brothers.  There' s a Springsteen-esque rock anthem, a Randy Newman style piano ballad and a lazy playful New Orleans boogie.  The album contains playful creative arrangements featuring a horn section and pedal steels guitar and fiddle.

Lyrically, "Press Play" is filled with stories of love, surprise, doing good and the passage of time.  Rymer realizes that his audience spans ages and generations and states:

"We encourage kids--all people, really--to look at the world through another's eyes, surprise themselves with what they can achieve, try the unimaginable or hey?  Maybe even change the world with a simple small action," he says.  "For adults especially, I think we need to take care of one another, and appreciate every moment we have together."

This impressive album will have you tapping your toes and singing out loud... come on get happy... get "Press Play!"  Highly recommended by Storywraps.
