Editor's note: Even though my heart is in the world of indie music these days, there is still some quality to be found on mainstream radio. Although Ryan Star may not be the household name he should be, he gets love from quite a few traditional over-the-air stations across the country. This is my way of introducing some of the most passionate music out there to those of you who may not have already heard of him. He's poised for the rest of the world to stand up and take notice, so RIGHT NOW is the time for you to get in on the R* phenomena!
And to keep you on track, make sure you check out his newest single, Stay Awhile, now available on iTunes!
