Born and raised in Hawaii, Ryan's love of music began at an early age. After playing on pots and pans (or whatever he could make a beat with) his mom finally signed him up for drum lessons at the age of 13. Ryan was hooked, and soon after that he began studying under the direction of Gary Washburn at Honoka'a High school. There Ryan learned to play in many styles, including rock, latin, blues, hip hop, jazz, and reggae music. After playing drums and singing in bands throughout high school and college Ryan picked up the ukulele to accompany his self while he branched out as a solo songwriter, singer, and rapper. Ryan studied music at UH Hilo and put his musical learning into application through live playing and studio recording.
Ryan has been blessed to have shared the stage with some great artists including Jason Mraz, Kenny Loggins, and Jon Cruz.
"I look forward to further sharing my knowledge and inspiring others to be the best they can - in music and in life!"
