One is very cool. The other is very Canadian. Yes, their names sound similar, but thankfully, their music doesn’t. However this hasn’t stopped many people thinking I’m a fan of the man that sang Everything I Do, I Do It For You when I mention the name Ryan Adams. For over ten years, I’ve had to defend my devotion to one of the best singer-songwriters of the past quarter century buy stressing to whoever’s asking “… that’s Ryan Adams by the way, not Bryan Adams.” They usually respond with relief, as they no longer have to make small talk with a 35-year-old man who likes listening to Bryan Adams. However, the fact that they don’t know who Ryan Adams is, usually means that our small talk never really turns into big talk.
