Welcome to The Safety First. This purpose of this website is primarily to become an archive/greatest hits album/place to store stuff full of interviews and other writings by Ryan Dembinsky (aka Ryan Demler)* as well as a place to road test new creative endeavors.

I also play guitar in a NYC/Brooklyn band called Grand Gesture (grandgesture.bandcamp.com) and have a new recording project in the works that is going to be called Save the Community Center.


*My wife and I changed our legal last names to Demler when our son was born several years ago, but most of this stuff was written as Ryan Dembinsky. I still kinda use both names, so whatever you prefer is cool by me. Take your pick.
