ABOUT RYAN:

With the unplugged story-telling of traditional American folk music and the compassionate alarm of early political punk, Ryan’s songs are situated between the streets, the radical bookstores and cafes, and the DIY basement show. From Baltimore, Maryland, he has taken his powerful, insightful, and humorous songs and stories of activism and political analysis around the world for a decade, visiting 19 countries and performing in some of the epicenters of recent uprisings including Cairo, Athens, Madrid, Reykjavík, and Lisbon.

In June, 2015, Ryan launched Firebrand Records with Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello to build a platform for radical, political artists globally.

Ryan’s performances are part story-telling, part song, and part stand-up political comedy. Speaking in his own voice, he presents kaleidoscopic narratives of modern social movements, political history, and personal stories aimed at moving the listener to question, act, and self-reflect on serious issues effecting the world today.

Putting his guitar aside, Ryan also regularly lectures at universities on music, social change, and political activism, and his journalism is featured regularly in publications like The Nation, Truth-Out, TeleSUR English, and other online journals.

A co-founder of the Riot-Folk musician’s collective in 2004 and the veteran-focused anti-war group The Civilian-Soldier Alliance in 2007, he has committed himself to balancing and blending music and political activism. In addition to his own staggering 12 albums, Ryan has also co-produced two benefit CDs for anti-war veterans’ organizations, A Line in the Sand in 2008 and A Soundtrack for Refusal in 2011.

Thanks for your time and your support!
