November 16---Ryan Gosling & His Dead Man's Bones

Who would have ever thought Ryan Gosling would be in a band??? This glorious photo (that I sadly did not take, but really wish I had) is of Ryan Gosling and his new, 2 man band, Dead Man's Bones (myspace.com/ deadmansbones).
I got a phone call this week from Dee asking if I was able to take her daughter, Hope to a recording for her choir today. When I said I would do it I had no idea that the recording was for Ryan Gosling's new album (I wasn't even aware that he could sing)! Apparently he and Rachel McAdam's sister's boyfriend, Zach Shields have started a band with both of them on vocals and guitar. Hope's choir teacher has connections to his manager and when Dead Man's Bones was looking for a choir to sing on a few of the tracks of the upcoming album, Hope's choir landed the deal. Today we left for Hollywood and when we arrived at the recording studio we were sadly greeted by a woman letting us know that the recording was changed to next Sunday. Hopefully I'll be able to sneak my own photo next week....

If you're as curious as me to hear what his voice sounds like, here's a link to a cute ballad that he recorded on his own.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6W62b98wd4&feature=related
