Thorny - Flood (2024)

“Flood,” the third album from Vermont synthesist and bassist, Thorny (JD Ryan), is a sonic journey born from the depths of central Vermont’s devastating floods in July 2024.


With “Flood,” Thorny elevates his hallmark misty, nebulous soundscapes, infusing them with a newfound dynamism that mirrors the interplay of turmoil and tranquility. This collection is a reflection on the duality of nature—its splendor and its wrath—encapsulating the raw power, the ruin, the sorrow, and ultimately, the resilient spirit of hope.


Composed and performed on synthesizers and processed bass guitar by JD Ryan at Shabby Road Studio, Plainfield, VT

Thorny - See No Sky (2023)

Sonic explorations and textures created by and for introspection, as an evolution of the foggy, gray sounds I first explored on Mostly Gray. To see no sky does not mean to despair... it simply means we're looking inward.
