Owl-Eye-Ring Tour 2018

I’m so excited to finally announce this years ”Owl-Eye-Ring Tour”! Owl-Eye-Ring is a dark dreampop collective I started last year together with italian dreamfolk duo SHE OWL. Every year we’ll do one tour with live on stage collaborations and invite one other musician to join us. This year we’ll have my very good friend and cellist/singer-songwriter Julius Österberg with us. See you soon on the road!

Cover Reviews!

My Dusty Springfield cover is starting to get some recognition! Thanks a lot Unpeeled (UK) and Drevet (SWE)  for reviewing it! 

“This is a song of abandonment, desertion and desolation and Gus Ring tackles that head on and Gus Ring ends up just as involved in, infected and hypnotised by the narrative as Dusty Springfield and her team did.” – Unpeeled (UK)

“Gus Ring ska ha en eloge för att ge sig på den här låten. En medalj i ädlaste valör. Han gör det riktigt bra i all sin enkelhet.” – Drefvet (SWE)

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

This year has been INTENSE. Releasing my second album “Hypnoseas” on vinyl, touring europe playing over 80 shows, quitting my dayjob to immerse myself completely in music, making a living off of it, moving to another country, creating the musical collective Owl-Eye-Ring. Meeting so many wonderful and unique people, and new friends for life. Some special love to all the people who has helped me make all of this possible, Jackalope – Artist Needs Management, and especially Paul who made this vision of mine become reality with our first tour together in 2016. All the people who has hosted me on my travels, let me in on their lives and shared a part of themselves. My amazing girlfriend who listens, understands and supports me and my passion. Daughters and Sons for believing in me and helping me release “Hypnoseas”, especially Patrik for close contact and nice talks. SHE OWL, my amazing new italian friends who I met this year and now feel like I couldn’t live without, making our dreams come to life together. One day we can eat all the Oplatky we want.

I still can’t believe I am working with music. It’s my dream. It’s amazement over all else. I am so so thankful. Really look forward to share another year of special emotional moments with YOU. Without YOU listening and coming to the shows, this wouldn’t be. Thank YOU

We Deserve So Much More

I have been doing a lot of research about Spotify playlists, and for one reason it makes me kinda sad. There is some very great playlists out there – but a lot of lists just contain the same type of music with the same type of productions. Therefore I decided to make a space for me and my friends music that deserve so much more attention than we have gotten – ”We Deserve So Much More”. If you want to support us and our music, and find some new hidden music gems – follow the list below, tell all your friends about it and give it a spin every now and then. The list is a mix of alternative, dreamy and acoustic music.

Much Love.
//Gus

Nordic Music Reviews Hypnoseas!

UK’s Nordic Music Reviews reviews Hypnoseas!

“Hypnoseas is an interesting and thoughtfully written album. Undoubtedly the strength comes from the fact than the album in its entirety has more to offer than any individual track. I admire songwriters who don’t always take the simpler options, and this is an album which has far more depth than will probably be apparent on first listen.”
