Growing up in north eastern Kentucky, surrounded by a musical family, Ryan has literally been involved in music his entire life. He loves music, and he loves people even more! Ryan has a contagious spirit and his songs will quickly be burned into your heart. He is an amazing song writer, his lyrics are thought provoking and deeply inspiring...and I might add, Ryan is a bona-fide gear head. He now resides in Phoenix Arizona with his beautiful wife Jen, and their son Coden. Ryan has been compared to such bands as Lifehouse, The Fray, and Switchfoot, yet he still carries something very unique that sounds like only he can sound. In the fall of 2010 Ryan teamed up with Dove Award winning producer Patrick Andrew and released his frist solo EP " Compass". Ryan released his first full length album "Control" nationally in the fall of 2012. Ryan is the Worship Pastor at North Hills Church in Phoenix Az.
