Ryan Sawyer with Kathy Leisen
Sunday, June 7, 7pm
Admission: $8 ($5 for members)

Ryan Sawyer was born in San Antonio, Texas, and started playing drums at the age of 11. Drawn not only to rock and jazz, but the colloquial conjunto, zydeco and punk rock music of his hometown, by the age of 19 he had recorded with the influential band At the Drive-In. He balances his percussion practice between composed and improvised performance. He has supported and collaborated with such diverse names as Rhys Chatham, Charles Gayle, TV on the Radio, Boredoms, Thurston Moore, Nik Zinner, Kid Millions, Fiery Furnaces, Trevor Dunn, Mekons, and Zeena Parkins, to name a few. He's also a veteran of Doug Aitken's Station to Station art train project. While this list is always growing, Sawyer has been cultivating a tight group of peers to deepen collaborative possibilities.

Detroit artist and musician Kathy Leisen, who is also Sawyer’s bandmate in Glass Rock, opens as part of 'Detroit Stages.'
