Ry Cuming may not be a household name yet but if he could knock on the front door of every home in the country and introduce himself he probably would. We caught up with the soft spoken singer, songwriter, at the House of Blues in Dallas.
"Texas is just one of those places you've got to go and hang out," said Cuming. "The House of Blues is kind of hallowed ground in a lot of ways. It's very humbling it's amazing to be here."
Cuming has quite a story to tell. He grew up in Australia, surfed with his father and did yoga with his mother and bypassed university so he could travel the world and that payed off for the artist.
"I was 18 and I went to, travel the world. I kind of turned down my college degree to go and experience things a bit," said Cuming. "And I just packed a bag, a backpack and a surf board and went to, Central America, Nicaragua and Costa Rica. I was discovered, I guess, playing in a hallway in Costa Rica."
After being discovered, Cuming moved to Los Angeles where he could still be close to the ocean. Where he likes to write and when he gets time he still breaks out the surfboard. "I generally just write the best when I'm just by myself," said Cuming. "In a little room somewhere, a hotel room by the ocean."
And right now he is following the music in his heart. Cuming is touring full time and will back in Dallas on October 21, opening up for his friends, Maroon 5 at Fair Park. The House of Blues gig was his first trip to Texas, Superpages.com will be his second.
"Just come out and hang out and see me play," said Cuming. "And if you feel like it grab the album and check out the music video."
