Sleeping at Last is an alternative rock musical project led by singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Ryan O'Neal. The project initially began in Wheaton, Illinois as a three-piece band with Ryan O'Neal as the lead singer and guitarist, his brother Chad O'Neal as the drummer, and Dan Perdue as the bassist. The band independently recorded their debut album, Capture in 2000, which they used to attract the attention of Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan, who helped them get signed to a major record label Interscope Records. The band released their first and only major label album, Ghosts in 2003, before going independent again and releasing Keep No Score in 2006, and Storyboards in 2009. In the years following the release of their first four albums, both Chad O'Neal and Perdue would both leave the band to pursue other interests. Ryan O'Neal chose to retain the use of the band's name for his solo work from that point on, but opted to focus on single songs and short EPs than any further traditional albums. ~*~*~*~ ~*~*~*~ While I enjoyed Sleeping At Last as a full band, my appreciation of the work greatly increased when Ryan began using the moniker for his solo works. He began creating EPS, some much better than others, in a series of really interesting collections. Yearbook: Released a new 3-song EP corresponding to the month trying to capture the feeling of each of those months. Total songs: 36 Atlas, Year One: Six 5-song EPs based around these themes: Darkness, Light, Space 1, Space 2, Land, and Oceans. Total songs: 30 Atlas, Year Two: Currently in progress. One based around the theme of Life was released last September, and the second based around the theme of Senses was released today (May 6th, 2016). ~*~*~*~ They've (He?) also has had a fair amount of success getting songs included in television shows (Grey's Anatomy regularly features their music, and there's a song on one of the Twilight movie soundtracks) and has completed one soundtrack for the indie film Many Beautiful Things. He's also got a cover album, and releases new covers working towards a second one pretty regularly. Anyone else a fan?
