AUDIO: Thorp Jenson's new single "Carry Me Home"

Posted By on Wed, Sep 25, 2019 at 3:10 AM

Americana musician Thorp Jenson is still showing that he's one of the most talented, up-and-coming singer/songwriters in the Richmond area.

The nom de plume for Richmond-based guitarist Chris Ryan, the artist just released a new laid back, country-tinged single, "Carry Me Home," that premiered at Parade Magazine.

The song, which will likely appeal to fans of Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty and Bruce Hornsby, also features well-known local drummer, Dusty Ray Simmons. Check it out: Dude has vocal skills far beyond his age. He sounds like he's already been touring those highways and byways for 35 years.

“Carry Me Home” is the first release since his acclaimed debut album "Odessa" (2017), which earned critical kudos while Jenson was named one of Rolling Stone Country’s "10 New Country Artists You Need To Know" in September of that year. Ryan and band will be touring the Southeast to support “Carry Me Home” beginning in October.

“I wrote 'Carry Me Home' thinking about the magic that happens when you meet someone who just seems to understand you on a deep and sincere level from your first interaction," Jenson says in a press release. "The way I imagined it, it is two people who found each other for the first time, sharing in that magic spark. They are sharing in a feeling of comfort that you can let yourself be vulnerable to this person because they already understand you. They spend the night reveling in that feeling together, sharing their stories with each other and just listening to the rhythm of the night.”

The single will be available on Sept. 27. Go to his website for more info.
