Tiny Desk: Rapid City's Clayton Ryan

This interview is from SDPB's daily public-affairs show, In the Moment, hosted by Lori Walsh.

NPR's Tiny Desk Contest is happening now. Artists have until Monday to submit original music for a chance to tour around the country with NPR music.

In 2021, Rapid City artists Clayton Ryan and Hannah Drewitz submitted their Tiny Desk entry. This is "Don’t Give Up On Me."

Ryan is now playing music full-time, playing bass with the Brandon Jones Band. They have upcoming shows scheduled for Sturgis, Denver, and Brookings. Clayton Ryan also has a new signal, "Pictures" coming out on March 11. You can find it on your favorite streaming service.
