“Losing Sleep and Losing Friends” is singer-songwriter Ryan Nealon's debut album. The songs tell Ryan's story of growth and maturity (and lack thereof) throughout your 20s through the lens of coming out, coming to terms with grief, and coming into your own. For the past several years, I have creative directed and collaborated with Ryan on the visuals for his music: album art, single covers, Spotify canvases, merch, and more.
