RYAN LOFTY’S DEBUT ALBUM TOURISTS FROM THE FUTURE OUT MARCH 10


After a short winter hiatus, Ryan Lofty is back with big plans for 2016. First off the rank is his first ever self-produced feature-length album: Tourists from the Future. The LP is an eight-track journey through space and time with a long list of friends joining the project as collaborators and featured vocalists, many of which will be recognisable from Lofty’s 2015 single releases. Touching on a wide range of genres, Bonx and Bestfriends are back with warm melodies, American Idol alumni Casey Abrams and Vegas local Gary Fowler bring electrifying jazz vocals, Mansions on the Moon‘s lead singer Ted Wendler soothes with a sultry indie vibe, and Lofty himself lays down vox on track Transmissions.

A preview mix of the album is available for free download via Soundcloud with the songs tracked out for individual listening on Spotify and iTunes at the links below.

Tourists from the Future was born in Laurel Canyon, CA in 2014 but was majority written and produced in Las Vegas. Lofty often describes the album as an art project and soundtrack for the drive between his two homes of LA and Vegas; the expansive desert and daydreams of space travel are two themes heavily present throughout. The album was almost scrapped when Lofty and Bonx stumbled upon the tropical vibes of The Mountain, which was originally planned as an indie pop track for the Tourists LP.

“After originally scrapping Tourists from the Future and going in a different direction with my music, these songs kept hanging around & would help me get through different stages of my life. This is one of the main reasons why I’ve decided to put the finishing touches on the project & put it out there for everyone else to enjoy.

I’ve been working on this for two years and to see it finally go off into the world is extremely gratifying.”

Expect frequent news from Lofty over the course of 2016 with new music and live dates soon to be announced.
