The Cobalt Season is always comprised of Ryan and Holly Sharp…and more often than not, Jared Milos as well. At any given show, there might be 1-6 musicians playing. We like it that way as it keeps the songs fresh and new for us. Lately, we’ve been playing as a 3-piece.
Below is a short bio for each person “in the band” as it were.

Ryan Lee Sharp
Ryan enjoys long walks up and around Bernal Hill with his little boy Pax. He also enjoys sharing his microbrew with friends, family, and strangers. And it’s damn fine microbrew.
No really, it is. Or at least Daley tells him so.
Ryan spends most of his time in his head, talking with himself about world peace, trash day, and all the dustbunnies in his house.
He and Holly dream of one day owning some property in the Sierras where they can build a winery (Zinfandel only please!) and retreat center or B&B. He just enrolled in winemaking classes at UC Davis.
He also wonders what life’s really about. Oh, and he blogs here quite regularly.
And then sometimes she’s just a painter. Not just, mind you, but, well, you know. (Wow, that’s alot of commas.) Her artwork has won the acclaim of many good folks, including the Pope, President George W. Bush (a huge supporter), Thomas Kinkaide, Picasso, and SF Mayor Gavin Neusom. Here’s some of her stuff.
And she’s working on a new series since she sold 11 of the last 12 pieces created. Perhaps an art show in summer 2008? We’ll see.
She sings from time to time. People tell her that she should sing louder. Her son and husband love her very much.
He’s really interested in seeing world peace achieved via monkeys with laptops.
From time to time, he plays a sour note on this here standup bass, but mostly he’s got the hands of a surgeon…or at least a surgeon’s assistant.
Daniel is a myth. No one has actually seen him. Well, except fans of BellTower and Rachel Williams.
Rumor has it that he was abducted by Sigur Ros and forced to transcribe their entire catalogue into piano sheet music. While on the road, he played 8 instruments at once. (No, seriously, YouTube it.)
Oh, and he’s putting the finishing touches on his own brand-spankin’ new album (check out his myspace), composing film scores, and trying to keep his car from looking like a dirty fish.
In the future, Dan says we will convert sand into water and he will record and produce bands looking for “it” or “that sound”.
Señor Hake is an accomplished guitar player, photographer and ballet dancer. Trained in his home-school program “back home” in “California”, he now competes here and there for bronze trophies that he melts down to make into tooth crowns.
He hails from a place that no longer exists, but don’t we all?
Daley contributed juicy guitar chords and whatnot on the latest record and might be found with traveling with us here and there. In the meantime, check his website out.
