Ryan and the Lions features Ryan Langlois and an ever changing line up of musicians who come together in various combinations to perform and record Ryan's original music. From folk to jazz and blues to heavy rock, the group takes a stab at many different genres. Ryan has formed different line ups for The Lions in Austin, Houston, New York City, and Galway, Ireland.

Although the idea for Ryan and the Lions was created in Austin Texas, September 2006, the band mainly began to take shape in Galway, Ireland in January 2007 shortly after Ryan arrived overseas. In Galway, Ryan completed a degree in English Writing and Rhetoric at The National University of Ireland and jumped right into the local music scene. He quickly became a familiar face around town playing with several acts including No Banjo, x-Klima, Philip Morrow and The Red Rose Cafe, the NUIG Traditional Irish Music Society and Emily Mure.

The debut self-titled Ryan and the Lions album was recorded in May 2007 in Galway with some of the town’s finest musicians joining Ryan in the studio. The album is for sale now worldwide at cdbaby.com and iTunes, and it is also in stock at local stores in Galway, Ireland and at Waterloo Records in Austin, TX.

In January 2008, Ryan brought his music to New York City. In just a few months, he has worked his way into the New York scene playing at venues such as The Sidewalk Cafe, Bar Nine, and Gizzi’s Coffee House.
