The Broseph E. Lee experience was once colorfully described as being similar to "riding a valiant steed into an Arizona sunset while gargling whiskey and being shot at by 100 angry enforcers of the law." If you are looking for a thrill like that, Broseph E. Lee is recommended as a safer alternative.

Describing Ryan’s live show to new people is not the easiest thing in the world. The art of live looping is growing as the technology becomes more accessible, but the ability to use this tool artistically and fluidly is difficult to master, and therefore is still rarely seen. Ryan uses acoustic guitar, voice, bass, harmonica and an electronic hand percussion instrument to “build” his songs from the ground up in front of a live audience on a nightly basis. What happens is RPI will play 4 or 8 bars of a song with an instrument, he will push a button with his foot to record and replay that instrument and that “loop” will keep going, he then will layer another instrument on top of it and so on and so forth. Everything is created live in front of the audience. There are never any pre-recorded loops or samples used, ever. Every song is a little different every night. Some songs remain acoustic the entire way through, some songs will build during every verse, and some songs will build layers at the beginning, some at the end, it is a musical smorgasbord, every song is different every night.
Country. Rock. That is Third Shift. We all grew up in the small town of Mount Zion, IL smack dab in the middle of Illinois. Made up of five honest, good ‘ol boys. Austin, the man that keeps the beat. Ethan, the pipes of the operation. Deckard, you have to have a bass groove right? Jake, someone has to put the guitar behind their head. Don’t forget Dalton, The telecaster he shreds makes me want to just name him Twang. We work hard to get by and play hard when the sun goes down. Our music brings you to our roots. Back roads, Bonfires, Beer, and Buck Shot. The party doesn’t start until Third Shift clocks in.
