Not to be confused with the song, Heart of an Artist.
Heart of an Artist is a 17-Track album released on May 24th, 2018, with a CD version at Momocon 2018. It also includes a deluxe version with the bonus tracks, Bind The Bible, I Am The Animal, As the Lights Go Out Rock Version and 2 live songs. The album was released alongside Greatest Hits, Volume 1 (on CD at Momocon with HoaA). It was made during a rough spot in Will Ryan's life when he decided to write new songs to explain how he was feeling. The album contains the songs; Heart of an Artist, Draw The Line, Kings and Queens, and As The Lights Go Out, which were made prior to the conception of the album. Digital Versions of the album were also released on iTunes, Spotify and Google Play (among others) to reach those who couldn't obtain the CD at the Momocon Convention.
An early release was posted on Will's Patreon on midnight the same day as the release in stores and the Physical CD at Momocon.
