Nationally touring singer songwriter Ryan Hutchens releases new music and plays shows under the name of his band, Cancellieri. Ryan is a self managed musician, but works in close partnership with a mixed media management company in Columbia South Carolina called Post Echo (www.post-echo.com). Cancellieri played several hundred shows while touring around the US during 2013 and 2014, and will continue to aggressively tour the US, Canada, and Europe in 2015. As a solo act, Ryan performs for and interacts with crowds with an energy and openness that stems from his musical roots as a street performer, reminiscent of touring songwriters like Langhorne Slim and Brett Dennen. When the band plays together, Ryan's songs can grow into the powerful folk rock experience they were created to be, achieving a sound often compared to artists like Cass McCombs and Band of Horses. Ryan has worked with Post Echo to release three EPs, one full length album, and a collection of live recordings and demo tracks over his first three years as a working artist. Each release has taken Cancellieri in a slightly new direction as Ryan's musical experience and circumstances changed; however, the heart of Cancellieri still remains in creating songs that can be honestly and beautifully expressed in a live performance.
