"Fountain Hills resident Ryan Tree’s aim in life is to make a difference. His latest work, “End to the Suffering,” is a haunting song about a soldier suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The film was showcased at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. His abilities as a wordsmith propel him forward in songwriting and storytelling."
"Ryan Tree is a fantastic songwriter, singer and musician. His debut album Illusions is an amazing first effort featuring rock-solid songs and a great overall vibe. This is an artist with an authentic, personal musical voice and here at RUST Magazine we – literally – cannot say enough good things about him. But what really makes this artist, and this album special, can be summed up in one phrase: crossover appeal."
"Phoenix musician Ryan Tree has teamed with Director Shanice Malakai to pay tribute to Veteran's Day in one of the best ways possible. Tree, a philanthropist and animal welfare activist wanted to shed light on the topic of PTSD. The video is a deep-seated one, showing how harrowing it can be to sit in one’s living room and recollect the times of a mental and physical war. The video is chilling to say the least."
"Ryan is a great musician with true passion and a super down to earth personality, which makes working with him a true joy. I look forward to hearing more of his music in the future."
“There is definitely the potential for this group to get big and I could easily see them being on the radio or selling out a live venue. The singer has a very clear voice and seems like he's sure of himself. Reminds me a little of a softer AFI. I'd see this band live at a show.”
“This song was perfect in every way. I loved everything about it and knew from the very start that I would enjoy listening to it. He has such a nice sounding voice that really warmed my heart. It made me want to continue listening to him singing when it ended.”
“Amazing piano playing. Lyrics are very relatable. Singer has a very good vocal range. The song drew me in from the beginning. This song is a shoe in for a spot on the radio.”
