From Ryann Lecklider
There isn’t a time Ryann Lecklider remembers loving anything more than music. From an early age, she gravitated toward soulful melodies and powerhouse vocalists. It wasn't until 2012 that she started trying her hand at songwriting.
Heavily influenced by legendary singers like Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston, Ryann’s musical style is definitively pop, but don’t let this oversimplified classification fool you. She also draws inspiration from artists like James Morrison, Marc Broussard, Brooke Fraser, Adele, and newcomer Tori Kelly. “Lyrics are incredibly important to me. Each word is painstakingly selected because my goal has always been to deliver honesty that's fresh and compelling.”
In 2013, Ryann was selected as the second Program Artist for Idle Tuesdays Recording Studio, a non-profit organization dedicated to developing artists who aim to positively influence the music industry and beyond. Her first ever project, The Detours EP, was released on May 16, 2014. Most recently, Ryann released a single called Don't Make Me Choose in February 2017 as a part of the Los Angeles Songwriters Collective EP vol 1 and Welcome to Reality in July of 2017.
