ABOUT

Ryan has been playing drums since the age of 10 and started playing in professional bands from the age of 17.

The musical talent goes back generations. His father plays drums so Ryan was always surrounded by an electronic drum kit at home, which he experimented on for a couple of years while at primary school. Towards the end of primary school he took lessons, which continued through secondary school. He experimented between different playing styles as his teachers said he was ambidextrous, eventually settling on a unique open-handed style of playing.

As time went on, Ryan started to take drumming more seriously and worked his way up through grades to finally pass his grade 8 with distinction in April 2016. From then on he never looked back.
