Ryan Angus

BandFolk

I play progressive acoustic music influenced by artists such as Dave Matthews, Ani Difranco, Damien Rice, and Ryan Adams. My guitar style is extremely rhythmic, giving my music a full sound with or without backing musicians.

Biography

I have grown up surrounded by a wide variety of music--from my father's 60s and 70s albums to my own interests ranging from rock to bluegrass/newgrass. As a self-taught guitarist much of what I know has been picked up from listening to others, and I constantly strive to take those influences and incorporate them into my own sound. I play and write positive music that people of many different ages and backgrounds can enjoy and I make it a goal to convey that positivity and energy to audiences in my live shows.
