This Machine Kills Purists: The Music of Joe Crow Ryan Joe Crow Ryan's Myspace page

Joe Crow Ryan

Joe Crow Ryan performs in the New York City subway to pay the rent. He can usually be found strumming a ukelele or a specially-tuned banjo, singing pop standards and his own compositions. When performs inside, at venues like the East Village's Sidewalk Cafe, he often lets loose on the piano with Cecil Taylor-style free jazz and prose recitations.

His CD releases THIS MACHINE KILLS PURISTS, VOL. ONE and THIS MACHINE KILLS PURISTS 2 capture him live in the subway, on stage at the Sidewalk, and (most unusally) in a recording studio.
