My music is built on a strong base of simple but effective lyrics and hooks with big harmonies. You should be able to listen to any of my songs and know what it's about within one minute and then be singing the song for the rest of the day. If you're not, I need to go and write another song for you!

Biography

My music is pop rock based and built upon a massive influence of all the classic bands which I grew up with ranging from: The Beatles, Bon Jovi, Elton John, Bryan Adams, The Beach Boys, Aerosmith, The Rembrandts, Eric Clapton, Led Zep, Eagle Eye Cherry, Queen and many more.

What sets me apart from other bands ? I try to focus solely on the song since the song is always the star of the show. At a time where indie bands and the like are popular, my sound is one heavily based on classic artists which hopefully comes through within the songs. I want to be writing the songs on your radio !

I have been writing my album since I started music school at the ACM in Guildford, 2005. This is where I met my band members. We have become a band simply by having similar influences and getting along with each other through a love of music. We currently gig as an acoustic duo but call in very good friends whenever we decide to play as a whole band. As an acoustic duo we love to focus on vocal harmony as there is nothing more pleasing to our ears than a good harmony. Especially if it's a Beatles song.

Discography

I have just finished recording a whole album and waiting on art work before releasing it on itunes but it is available for listening at www.myspace.com/ryanwilliamsguitar

The album is called "All By Myself" and the track "Please Tell Me Why" has been played on BBC Radio Berkshire.

I play the whole of my album which is 30 minutes give or take allowing for solos/talking/tuning between songs. If more is needed I can add covers and/or the new songs I've wrote.
