[NEW WEIRD AMERICANA] It took Ohioan a good while to make it to where it always belonged. Singer-songwriter-mastermind Ryne Warner started the project during his alleged walk—yes, walk—from Chicago to Portland. For a few years, Warner made music that imagined Americana as a big, purplish sky under which everything from droning noise to African trance-funk to mystical roots music could flourish. In 2011, he relocated to Tucson, Ariz., and now claims the Sonoran Desert as his home, which is where you'd imagine he came from in the first place. Ohioan's official discography is hard to pin down, but the last album available on Warner's Bandcamp, the curiously titled Balls Deep in Babylon, sounds something akin to Dr. John, if he'd been raised in the desert by a pack of coyotes.
