From The Loose Cannons to Slide Bayou, Azalea City singer-songwriter Ryan Balthrop has taken on a number of projects since his days with Slow Moses. Balthrop is also known for bringing together notable local musicians for his Ryan Balthrop & Friends shows.
Could the “friends” joining him at The Brickyard be a one-off or the start of another great project? Infant Richard & the Delta Stones’ Christian Heiden, Paul McDonald and Daniel Clements will be joining Balthrop, along with Stereo Dogs keyboardist Andrew Ayers. Balthrop promises this will be a funky experience for all.
These days, Balthrop has also been dedicating his free time to improving the local environment. Late last month, the newly formed Eslava Creek Yak Club spent a day kayaking on Eslava Creek, picking up litter in the area. Balthrop also has aspirations of being a water tester at the Dog River trash trap on McVay Drive. He says all these endeavors are an effort to “raise awareness about the effects of littering on our waterways.”
