ABOUT

Hey there!
My name is Ryan and I am an experienced session and reading Guitarist.

For the past year I have been contracted as a session guitarist for Cruise Ships from Royal Caribbean, Tui and more. Specialising in both Party/Jazz functions onboard and also as a sight reading musician for a multitude of guest acts and different shows in a plethora of unique styles.

With an expanding repertoire of over 500 songs covering almost every style imaginable from Funk, Rock, Motown, Jazz, Latin, Pop, Fusion, Rap and Neo-Soul! I have been able to cater to a vast array of clientele from rockers to rollers to cocktail bar enthusiasts, endeavouring to entertain and inspire.

With an energetic stage presence and chops to match I am very comfortable working with different musicians, learning new songs swiftly and accurately, whilst making sure to not be robotic and enjoy every performance!

Thank you for reading! :)
