Welcome to The Sleeping At Last Podcast! My name's Ryan O'Neal, I make music under the name "Sleeping At Last." Nice to meet you! This podcast is an evolution of my ongoing series of "How It Was Made" blog posts, in which I dissect and explain how my songs take shape, one song at a time. In this podcast, I'll be talking about my creative process, the intention and thought behind my songs - what they mean to me and why I did what I did. I'll also debut some new songs on here! That's the plan, but I'm brand new to this whole Podcast planet, so who knows! In any case, if you're curious about how my music gets made, I'd be so honored for you to take a listen. Love, Ryan

This type 3 sends a heartfelt THANK YOU

Listened to my first episode and I’ll be back. I heard your music via Jen Hatmaker and am so grateful to have been connected. You provide an amazing gift to this world. Thank you

THANK YOU. 🥺

As soon as I listened to the very first verse of “Two” on my way home in the car, I just wept. I cried and cried. It just felt like every feeling of shame and being misunderstood and feeling like everything and everyone else’s needs are more important than my own was just released as I cried like a little baby, haha.

Ryan, the work you are doing and have been doing is just incredible. The way you care about every little detail of a song you put together doesn’t go unnoticed. Not only the Enneagram songs, but everything else has blown me away! Thank you for what you are bringing to this world by using the gifts God has blessed you with. I truly believe it’s changing people’s lives! Keep it up!!!
