"Success? Hey if I can get someone to listen to me talk, sing or whatever for 5 minutes, I'm given those 5 minutes back in genuinity and fruitfulness. That's some success right there." Seeing and speaking on behalf of what he sees and how he feels was something Ryan Mitchell Grey has done all his life. Born and raised in the urban streets of Queens - New York, the 22-year old embarked on a lifelong, music-filled journey that has recently started to grab hold of people's hearts. His father left remnants of his musical past rarely touched inside their apartment home, sparking interest in young Ryan to start tinkering with the household instruments. About one-and-a-half decades later, he writes and records an LP entitled, "On The Stellar Way" and successfully documents his current ability and capabilities in song.

Starting out with a passionate love for poetry during Jr. High School, the desire to write would follow him into his High School years. He would experiment any way he could, just to get the music out. After his cousin introduced him to a Kanye West song in 2003, the interest of hip-hop remained in his heart and mind until he finally started writing lyrics to instrumentals he would find on the internet. Ryan learned how to record on Adobe Audition and used an old computer mic to speak his words and put them out for friends to hear. For the remainder of his high school days he would go through many names and songs until his senior year, when he decided to start writing a bit more organically.

The Post-High School year measured and tested Ryan's soul as the unrelenting search for artistic value brought him to the doorstep of Jesse Barrera in San Diego, California. Ryan became Jesse's first production project and was guided by him during the release of his debut EP, "Surrounded by White Walls". It featured the alternatively driven tale, "Love at a Distance" and the John Mayer-esque styled, "Sun Stole the Shine" which spoke on the confusion after a one-night fling. After returning to NYC and slowly putting together a band to back him, the dynamics of his musical output began to administer a change in view for his artistic contributions.

"MItchell Grey" became a safe haven, where any thoughts and/or actions would be an artistic conquest and would provide progress to any of it's benefactors. The year 2011 gave Ryan a chance to travel to a few states (including trips to Canada and Australia) giving him the momentum to write many songs which later found themselves in the eclectic record that "On The Stellar Way" is today. Produced by Jesse Barrera, themes of love, heartbreak, faith, and optimistic perseverance are explored with each interesting title every song holds. Songs like, "Surface Surfing" (a descriptive fantasy of unmitigated love-making), "Monster" (an apologetic confession to a daunted admirer), and "Silver No. 9" (a song about a train you ride after your time on Earth, where after viewing your life as it had unfolded, the realization of the reoccurring theme, "Love", sets you on your way to heaven) are all examples of how far Ryan has come as a songwriter.

Fueled by the fire to spread his music and by the grand hustle his home city of New York has instilled in him, Ryan plans to move minds and catch hearts with every song that flows out of him. With a soulful attempt and an enigmatic approach, his voice has managed to evoke pure emotion from his listeners and supporters. Hoping to make an impact with his music, big or small, on a major scale or in the heart of one person, one thing is for certain.. any, if not every impact creates a ripple within him and being able to turn those ripples into waves - will be the biggest key to his success.
