Early life[edit] Bingham was born in Hobbs, New Mexico, grew up in West Texas and went to high school in Houston, Texas, at Westfield High School. Bingham got his first guitar as a 16-year-old when his mother bought him one. At the time, they were living in Laredo, Texas. Although he was fascinated by music, he left his guitar dormant in his closet for around a year, until Bingham's old neighbor, whom he used to drink beer with at his back porch, taught him a classical Mariachi song called "La Malaguena" in segments. Soon, he moved to the Fort Worth area in Texas, and with growing interest in playing music, he started seeking new songs to learn. Bingham started playing gigs in bars that he and his friends used to hang out in and that's how his career as a musician initially began.[13] Career[edit] After issuing self-released "Wishbone Saloon" and "Dead Horses", the latter distributed by Lone Star Music, Bingham was signed to Lost Highway Records, who issued his first major label debut with Mescalito on October 2, 2007, produced by former Black Crowes
Black Crowes
guitarist Marc Ford. Texas Music Magazine has opined that "Bingham talks and sings with a whiskey-and-cigarette throat that screams hard living. Hard in a way that can make a 29-year-old sound like a 50-year-old Tom Waits."[14] Bingham spent several years on the rodeo circuit: He began bullriding in his late teens.[15] His family moved several times, from Hobbs to Spring and Stephenville, Texas.[16] Bingham's former band, The Dead Horses, was composed of Matthew Smith (drums), Corby Schaub (guitar and mandolin) and Elijah Ford (bass). The bass player on Mescalito was Jeb Stuart. They appeared alongside Bingham with the Drive-by Truckers
Drive-by Truckers
on the PBS show Austin City Limits in October 2007. The first single from Mescalito, entitled "Southside of Heaven," was released on November 30, 2007. The second single was entitled "Bread and Water." On June 2, 2009, Ryan Bingham

Bingham performed two songs for the soundtrack of the movie Crazy Heart, including "I Don't Know," and the theme song, "The Weary Kind." The song was co-written by Bingham and producer, T Bone Burnett. Bingham also played a small role in the film as Tony.

Academy Award
for Best Original Song [17] [18], the 2010 Grammy award for Best Song Written for a Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media[19], as well as Song of the Year at the 9th Annual Americana Music Association awards.[20] Bingham's third major label release, Junky Star, was released on Lost Highway Records on August 31, 2010. On September 18, 2012, Bingham co-produced and released his fourth studio album Tomorrowland on Axster Bingham Records. The first single released from Tomorrowland was "Heart of Rhythm." Both the single and the official lyric video debuted on Americansongwriter.com on July 30, 2012.[21] Bingham’s second Tomorrowland single "Guess Who’s Knockin" debuted on Rollingstone.com on September 6, 2012.[22] The official music video for "Guess Who’s Knocking" premiered on Pastmagazine.com October 4, 2012.[23] Bingham released a song titled "Back By the River" on "The Musical Mojo of Dr. John: A Celebration of Mac and his Music," in 2016.[24] In 2013, Bingham's song "For Anyone's Sake" appeared in the closing credits of the feature film Joe (2013 film), starring Nicolas Cage. Bingham wrote the song for the film, the song was released as part of the film's original soundtrack in April 2014. [25] [26] In 2014 Ryan Bingham

Bingham also wrote and recorded the film's title track "A Country Called Home," the song was released digitally through Bingham's own label, Axster Bingham Records, on May 6, 2016.[27]. Bingham's fifth studio album "Fear And Saturday Night" was recorded mostly live at Plyrz Studio outside of Los Angeles, California. [28] The album was produced by Jim Scott and released through Axster Bingham Records on January 20, 2015. The album's first single "Radio" was released on December 9, 2014. In a 2016 interview with Rolling Stone magazine Bingham shared, "'Radio' is a song I wrote about the thoughts, memories, and emotions that roll through my mind. The radio that's constantly playing in your head, night and day." [29] Reception[edit] Bingham has appeared as a guest on Bob Harris's Country Show on the BBC's Radio 2. Daryl Easlea, writing for the BBC's folk and country review, said "Bingham will be one of the names to drop in 2008, with an album that sounds as if it's been unearthed from 1972."[30]

Rolling Stone magazine
gave Mescalito three out of five stars and wrote that Bingham "earns his sepia-toned album cover with a dusty wood-and-steel sound, and despite being twenty-five, sings like Steve Earle's dad." [31] PopMatters
PopMatters
review of Tomorrowland awarded the album with 8 out of 10 stars. Greg M. Scwartz, writing for Popmatters wrote, that “The one-time pro rodeo rider turned Texas troubadour has blues, country, and Americana influences that are certainly still there. But at his core, Bingham has always been a rock ‘n’ roller and Tomorrowland features him rocking at his best.” [32] Tomorrowland was also reviewed by Nico Isaac from Paste (magazine). Isaac wrote: “Tomorrowland is like a good, ol’ fashioned rock anthem of kiss-my-asschaps autonomy… One things for sure Tomorrowland- the album and the red-blooded, rattlesnake-eating rebellious attitude—is no place for the weary kind.” [10]

Personal life[edit] Bingham currently lives in Los Angeles, California with his wife Anna Axster, who also directed his music videos.[33][34] He announced at his performance in Austin, TX on March 5, 2015 that he and his wife are expecting their first child in the summer of 2015. Bingham's song "Broken Heart Tattoo" from Fear And Saturday Night is a reflection about what he would like to say to his unborn child.[35] Ryan's mother drank herself to death and his father committed suicide. Bingham's "Never Far Behind" from his "Tomorrowland" album is about his parents.[36][37] Discography[edit] Studio albums[edit]
