GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - They're a slice of breezy West Coast pop reminiscent of the sound of The Beach Boys and The Beatles. Twin Cities rockers Joey Ryan & the Inks are making a name for themselves since forming just five years ago.
The band stopped by the KARE 11 Backyard to perform two songs, "Of a Feather" and "Spitting in Tune," for Music Mondays.
"We have a lot of influences but mostly get compared to a 60's pop, West Coast vibe," lead vocalist and guitarist Joey Ryan said. "I'm not sure how much we fit into that mold anymore but we draw from a variety of genres and time periods."
Joey Ryan & the Inks released an EP, "Pause," earlier this year and are already working on a follow up EP to be released next year.
Band members include Joey Ryan, Matt Mitchell, Chris Mitchell, Ryan Mach and Tim Dickson.
