Ryan Yingst Chaos album cover

Chaos (feat. TopHouse)

Love is easy in good moments. Care is simple when everything is right. But when hardship escalates, we count on those around us and test the bonds that hold relationships together. This was the case after a random attack on the streets of Nashville left Ryan with multiple broken bones and in need of reconstructive surgery. Through the turmoil and doubt that followed, his partner never waivered. She offered the strength he needed to make his recovery and the kindness to keep him from losing his way. Out of this pain and love came the song ‘Chaos’. A ballad of love and loss, and the balancing of pain and care. Brought to life with the help of rising-star folk band Top House, this song is as authentic as its meaning. Recorded in one take from The Owl Studio in Nashville TN by engineer Dan Davis. A one-shot video of the recorded performance shot by Alex Amato accompanies the track, showcasing the raw power of the song’s meaning and creation.
