TESTIMONIALS

"Professional and Accomodating"

He was asked to play only 2 weeks before the event.  He not only chose music, he wrote a beautiful song that themed our service and was able to learn the finger-picking for another woman's song so she could sing.

 

Susan Mayerle | President | Concerns of Police Survivors (COPS) MN Chapter

“His lyrics and musical insight... literally brought tears to my love’s eyes."

If you need to express yourself in song or need to put a few thoughts into words, give those thoughts and words to Ry and watch them unfold into a perfect musical expression of your own journey.

Michael Wilde  |  Man in Love

“...his generous spirit is evident in relationships with fellow musicians."

 His two decades song-writing shine through in his able craftsmanship and performance and his generous spirit is evident in relationships with fellow musicians.
