Heart On The Sleeve: Ryan Chernin – “Ashtray Kisses”


Ryan Chernin

“Ashtray Kisses”

You Know Who You Are

God, here’s a song we can relate to:  “I need your ashtray kisses, even if it kills me”.  Haven’t we all been there.  Ryan Chernin is so perfect as he sings about a relationship that’s toxic, yet rather having that poison than going without.  As Chernin says:

“It’s me up there. It’s my pain, my happiness. It’s all out there and it’s very vulnerable.”
And you can hear the vulnerability in his songs. I really love this guy.  His mother claims he sang while imitating her as a child.  Chernin has that same laid-back style of Evan Dando of the Lemonheads, even dealing with difficult themes with style.  Chernin is breath of fresh air.
