Nashville, TN (December 1, 2023) - After a two-year hiatus, Nick Ryan returns to the music scene with the release of his long awaited “Unplugged” album from the vault!

Track Listing:

1. Music Lover (Unplugged)

2. King of Excuses (Unplugged)

3. You Are Not My Friend (Unplugged)

4. Jealous Sea (Unplugged)

5. Murder Business (Unplugged)

6. Politics & Mind Games (Unplugged)

7. Bow Down (Unplugged)

8. Good People Are Hard to Find (Unplugged)

9. Trouble In Here (Unplugged)

Recorded live in 2021 during the COVID-19 pandemic, the project was produced by Mike Corcoran at 615 Recording Studio as part of his livestream to help artists during the pandemic. Nick enlisted a band of Berklee College of Music alumni known as the Invisible Heroes, whom he worked with on his 2019 version of "Murder Business." The live performance is fully stripped down with acoustic guitars, piano and a drum kit.

“I wanted to recreate the MTV Unplugged experience with this record," Nick shares. "I absolutely loved the Unplugged albums and performances of the Corrs, Alanis Morissette, Mariah Carey, and Eric Clapton - to name a few. I think these versions sound better than the originals. I’m excited for my fans to hear them!”

 Released on December 1, 2023, “Unplugged” is one of two projects Nick will be releasing to tide fans over until the release of his third album.
