Following the heels of his release with jazz master Paul Hardcastle, electronic artist/producer Ryan Farish digitally releases a tune with Paul’s son on RYTONE Entertainment. Called “Sunset Sky,” the number features Paul Hardcastle Jr. on the saxaphone mixed with a twist on Ryan’s signature melodies. It has a chillout, yet an upbeat, contemporary jazz vibe about it that embellishes on the talents of both artists.

“The beauty of the music scene today is it’s easy to collaborate. You don’t have to be so genre specific about what you create,” said Ryan. “It’s so accessible to put out music and do what you want to do. You can express yourself artistically.”

Paul Jr. is currently featured on Jazzmasters VI with the song “Touch and Go.” The album hit No. 1 on iTunes and No. 4 on Billboard’s charts in its debut week last month. He also contributed to Jazzmasters V. The multi-instrumental, contemporary jazz musician frequently plays in Ibiza.

“Sunset Sky” is now available on iTunes, Amazon, eMusic and Rhapsody.

Ryan Farish – coined the American ATB by fans – released his first full-length album a decade ago. The Virginia native has been able to cross genres, thanks to collaborations with fellow musicians like Paul Hardcastle, Donna Lewis and Trin-i-tee 5:7. In 2008, he garnered a Grammy nomination and received a Dove Award. The award-winning songwriter/producer/ composer/multi-instrumentalist’s music has also been featured on numerous TV shows and movies. As of April 2010, more than 1,000 listener-supported YouTube videos helped him reach 34 million views.
