Everyone has a reason, or even a few, for why they have chosen the paths they take. Typical answers oftentimes include, "it's what I'm good at", "it's what my parents did", and so on. But for D. Ryan, it was never a choice!
"The music chose me," he says.
He's a rare find in a town saturated with talented musicians! Blessed with a thick, soulful voice, a desired Cali-style, and a charming exuberance, he captivates even the most distant listener. These are but a few ingredients that make up a rockstar on the rise! Even so, his positive heartfelt agenda to reach the people and touch them on an emotional level, sets him apart from many of his peers!
"One of the most powerful rock voices I've heard in years," says Larry Sheridan, owner of the Parlor Studio. "Great tempo, positive message, soulful songs."
D. Ryan wrote/performed a song tailor-made for WorldVentures, a lifestyle company that markets travel-related products. With hundreds of thousands of training videos purchased by new consumers interested in their services, his song, “Making a Living . . . Living life,” and the video footage underscored their message, “you should be here, so you too can be making a living, living life to the fullest, when you take advantage of one of our unique, lifestyle vacation packages!” On the heels of this successful venture, D. Ryan went on to record his debut album, released in June 2011, with multi-platinum selling songwriter/producer Mike Puwal and producer Phil Ricciardi.
Truly passionate about his music, D. Ryan plans on re-releasing his album in 2014. He will follow it up with an expansive tour to take his message on the road and will reach out to all the hard-working individuals, who like himself, strive to make our country great!
One could say, “keep an eye out for this up and coming artist,” but after a few minutes of meeting D. Ryan, you'll realize that there is no way to miss him and what he has so enthusiastically added to our country's musical landscapes!
