In addition to this, he has played on many albums, been a band member for a television show produced by Kelsey Grammer, and played as a member of the broadway shows “Jersey Boys”, “Hadestown”, and “Summer.” He is currently a member of The Brianna Thomas Band, Frank Lacy Sextet, and leads his own group along side members Stacy Dillard, Jeremy “Bean” Clemons, and Craig Magnano. It is with all of this music and experience that Ryan seeks to bring to the world his love for music whether it be with recording, his additions as a bass player, composing, mixing, producing, or as an educator. He looks to the future with a positive outlook and uplifting attitude, heart and soul, and knows that all of our hard work is what changes this world one little bit at a time.
