During the past four years, Ryan has won singer/songwriting contests throughout Boston and in 2010 became a SingerUniverse.com voice of the month. 

Since living in the Boston area, Ryan has played venues such as Berklee’s Performance Center and Cafe 939, The Middle East, Club Passim, The Living Room in NYC and also colleges and Universities around the Northeast area like Bryant University and Daniel Webster College. Ryan can be found performing on local TV shows and has had his music featured on the New England Cable News Morning Show. Recently Ryan was scouted by a New York City talent agency to audition for The Voice and received a scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music. 

Ryan has been selected by the National Association of Campus Activities for the Northeast, Northern Plains and Central Region to showcase in the past years and can be found performing all around the New England area. Ryan is currently working on a new album and online content in 2017.

Ryan was fantastic! He was a pleasure to have at Wheaton and his performance was great.
