“Being able to connect with my fans in our live shows and bring the recorded versions of my songs to life and listening to the fans sing the songs back at our shows creates such a good energy that once we hit the stage, I never want the show to end.”
From an early age... it was apparent to Ryan’s family and friends how drawn he was to music: drumming with any item that remotely resembled a drumstick, playing his guitar non-stop, listening to every genre of music available, and sitting in the front row at church to be close to the band.
"Music has always been my passion for as long as I can remember. When I was a little kid I used to sit absolutely transfixed whenever there was any kind of live music available to watch knowing that I wanted to perform like that one day."
Although music was always at the forefront, Ryan had other interests as a youth as well. Growing up in South Florida allowed Ryan to participate in numerous sports and his athleticism enabled him to excel in many including travel ice hockey, basketball, competitive waterskiing, surfing and bodybuilding.
Ryan was able to successfully balance school, sports and music throughout his elementary, middle and high school years and as he entered college made a decision to focus primarily on both his college education and music.
“My family has always supported me and encouraged me to set goals and work hard to achieve them...I am thankful for the gifts I have been given and am extremely blessed to be able to do what I love.”
