About Ryan

When I write a song, I want it to have character. I want it to make you laugh or think or even bum you out. But above all else, I want it to stick with you for a while.

That's my goal anyway.

I've been playing music since I was 9. Started writing some terrible songs in high school. Got better at in college. Hit my stride in my 20s. 

I grew up in the New Orleans area, where music flows through our veins. I later moved to Brooklyn, New York, and now live in New Jersey. Over the years, I've played at some pretty cool places, including Tipitina's, the Howlin' Wolf and Carrollton Station in New Orleans, and the Knitting Factory and Pianos in New York. I put out a CD, appeared on a local TV show and had my songs played on radio a handful of times. 

How would I describe my music? I like to call it pop-rock with a tinge of country. Some of my biggest inspirations are artists whose roots are in country but who often blur the lines of rock, pop and country -- think Old 97's or Ryan Adams. 

I hope to release some new music in late 2017 or early 2018. So please sign up for the email list or follow me on Twitter so you can keep up with whatever I'm working on or upcoming shows.
