Ryan Laetari is a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist from Wichita, KS. Runs well. Good condition. Wears one hat. Brand new tires. Working AC. Great gas mileage.
This is a song about Ryan Laetari’s Ex, he was tired of writing desperate love songs so he did the complete opposite. And you know what? It works.
Refreshingly more ‘punk’ than you’d think, the surfy ride that ‘I Don’t Need You’ isn’t a connection to reminisce. It’s a calling card to the heroism that you have, deep within, to let go. Ryan did. And look where it got him.
The vibe of Ryan’s sultry and the daring, is within the folds of his lyricism. It’s bold, yet subtle; harmful, but who cares. His gentle exterior, bemoans the hard-ass that we all can relate to. The world is un-fair. Other humans are un-fair. But life must go on.
There are many more who love you more than that ‘ex’. Fact. And with this single, Ryan keeps that in perspective.
We all should too.
