Bio: Ryan Fox has been playing guitar, singing, and writing music for 15 years. He has headlined many bands whose styles ranged from ska, punk, jazz, pop, jam-band, and rock. He left his most recent venture, the Manhattan-based “BlueDog”, to pursue gigging the Long Island bar scene, focusing on melodic and crowd pleasing cover songs rather than original tunes.

Whether playing solo or with percussionist friend Robert Borland, Ryan Fox will bring a variety of styles to the venue. Most importantly, Ryan is great at “reading the audience” and can switch up style at a moment’s notice. From boisterous sing-a-longs to background music, he calls on his extensive list of material and talented guitar work to match any mood.

What’s the difference between Ryan Fox and any other guitarist/singer?

The first thing you’ll notice is the way he makes each song “his own”. You won’t catch Ryan Fox reading chords straight from a book to try to mimic a song. Every note, lyric, and inflection is hardwired to his memory which enables him to focus on other details rather than keeping up with a book. A popular country song may spontaneously go reggae or a punk song may go acoustic, and no two versions will ever be quite the same.

Second is the guitar work. His fluid, melodic style and ease of playing will impress any audience. His style, tone, and even which guitar he plays is a direct reflection of his mood which is in turn tied closely to the crowd and venue.

Third, you’ll notice a voice that ranges from plain-spoken soft vocals, to growling deep tones that bring to mind such players as Stevie Ray Vaughan or Jimi Hendrix.

And finally is his professionalism. You won’t have to worry about Ryan showing up late or ever sounding like an amateur. 15 years of dealing with club owners and managers has given him the ability to understand their needs and a deep respect is held for the staff of the venue in question.
