Ryan has carved out an almost 20-year career as an independent artist in Canada’s vibrant music scene. He’s always been a genre fence sitter, hanging out on the edges of country just enough to say he isn’t; Ryan is both a whisper and a scream.
the course of his career, Ryan has toured Canada countless times,
released five full-length albums, and seen his music licensed nationally
and abroad. He has shared the stage with an extremely wide-variety of
artists, ranging from Lisa Loeb & Buffy Ste. Marie to Nickelback
& Mother Mother. He’s had the honour of participating in JunoFest,
the Western Canadian Music Awards, Tonder Festival (Denmark), Canadian
Music Week, Music West, Americana Fest (Nashville), Folk Alliance
International (Kansas City) and various other notable Canadian music
gatherings. In 2012, Ryan snagged 3 awards (out of 5 nominations) at the
Vancouver Island Music Awards (Male Vocalist, Record & Artist of
the Year). He is also a founding member of beloved group Lion Bear Fox.
