Ryan McGarvey / Press

"Ryan McGarvey is one of the brightest, young blues-guitarists hitting the scene today. A native of Albuquerque, New Mexico, this twenty-three year old guitar sensation has been making a name for himself on the national and international scene, flaunting a string of credits that would be impressive even for the most seasoned of blues veterans."

"He came from behind and won Ernie Ball’s Play Crossroads contest after entering a month late. Fans voted for the top 500 entrants out of a pool of nearly 3500, and then judges selected the winner from the top 100 vote-getters. Onstage, McGarvey tore up and down the fretboard..."

"Technically amazing and soulfully profound. Hard to believe, really..."

Michael Henningsen - The Weekly Alibi

"A technical skill and soul that belies his age"

Jonanna Widner - The Santa Fe Reporter

"He's a natural old soul with surprisingly mature sensibilities and talent."

Laura Marrich - The Weekly Alibi

"... McGarvey keeps weaving more and more thrills into the mix."

Michael Molenda - Guitar Player Magazine

"As for any hotshot players, lets just say that, for the most part,the best players I saw were local Austin cats... And Albuquerque's Ryan McGarvey."
