Paul ‘Trip’ Ryan

Album: Lisa Mychols and Super 8
Released: 22 July 2020

Info: Trip and Lisa talked to The Big Takeover
about their collaboration and the longplayer…

Trip: “It was quite a challenge at times, but a mighty enjoyable one at that!
We did have a fair bit to contend with making this album. For example: The
concerns everyone has in the grip of a global pandemic for starters! Then there
was some major surgery to contend with my end in the midst of it all! We also
experienced our fair share of trans-Atlantic file-sharing issues, and technical
gremlins… I’m very proud of what we’ve achieved here!”

Lisa: “We were super connected throughout the whole entire process,
yet we had this individual and unique space we could create in. Seriously,
this has turned out to be one of the most fun projects I’ve ever been a part of.”

Key phrase: ‘If you’re going to write a song, try to get together with a collaborator
because it’s better to write with collaborators.”
