Ryan Driver is a Toronto–based musician who plays, writes, and sings music. Quietly absurd songwriting, free improvisation, psychedelic reinterpretation of jazz ballads, performance as a soloist and in a multitude of peculiar ensembles, and using a variety of instruments and aesthetics have long been his main foci. He is a prominent figure in the catalogue of the Rat–Drifting record label, which was started in 2001 by Eric Chenaux and Martin Arnold. His two solo albums, Feeler Of Pure Joy and Who's Breathing? were released on Fire Records (UK). He has recently toured in the UK, Europe, and Canada as a solo artist and as a member of bands led by Devon Sproule, Baby Dee, Doug Tielli, and Sandro Perri.
