Nashville, TN (Dec. 20, 2017) — Dynamic new star Ryan Kinder took his headlining tour to New York last week where he performed his first-ever concert in The Big Apple for a packed-out house at the Mercury Lounge (12/12). During his set, Kinder played several of his fan favorites, as well as a few never-heard-before-songs that will be included on his upcoming new music set for release early next year for Warner Bros. Records/Warner Music Nashville.

While in New York, Kinder also made a quick stop at the VEVO offices to perform for the staff during their holiday party. Later, he performed three songs for Paste Sessions Live.

Kinder wrapped his whirlwind week in NYC with a surprise happy-hour concert for patrons visiting the new Opry City Stage in Times Square.

Kinder, who boasts more than 40 million streams ahead of his to-be-released album, has been critically praised for his distinctly soulful vocal prowess, vulnerable songwriting and nimble guitar playing. Pandora has taken note of his digital domination by naming him one of its 2018 Country Artists to Watch. Billboard, who gave him the same recognition in 2017, recently shared the music video for his new single “Still Believe in Crazy Love,” noting the way it’s taking his career “to a different level, one that’s deeper than any radio hit could provide.”The gritty ballad was also included as one of Amazon’s 50 Best Country Songs of 2017. Most recently, Kinder was listed among the talented breakout artists in CMT’s “18 for 2018” Listen Up program that spotlights country music’s most promising newcomers across all CMT platforms.

Kinder kicked off his 14-city headlining tour in November that will run through February 2018. For a complete list of tour dates, visit
