Jimmy Ryan: Finally 1990



Jimmy and Johnny have played guitar together for almost 40 years, and in that time have honed their guitar styles to a razors’ edge. Being brothers, their relationship, combined with their love of guitar, music and each other, creates a very special sound. While in high school, they began to exchange licks and jam together. They soon learned to work out harmony leads together, began writing and arranging guitar parts, and their signature dual lead guitar harmony style was born. During the remainder of the 1970s and 1980s, they continued to develop and refine their dual lead harmony approach as well as their individual guitar styles in a number of bands, most notably “Westfall”, “Nutcracker” and “Axis”, opening up for the top touring acts of the day including Styx, Kiss and Survivor, winning every “Battle Of The Bands” they entered, and developing a loyal following along the way.

In the 1990s, Johnny designed and built a recording facility in his home, aptly named “The Garage”. From those humble beginnings through to the present, Jimmy and Johnny (as “The Flyin’ Ryan Brothers”) began writing, producing, arranging and recording a string of stylistically diverse independent CD releases deeply rooted in their signature dual lead guitar harmony style. Their smoking double lead arrangements can only be described as “amazing”. Jimmy and Johnny’s music has earned them consistent critical acclaim worldwide, including multiple GRAMMY nominations, numerous “Best Of” awards (including being voted one of Billboard’s “Independent Music World Series Top 15 Acts From The Midwest”), receiving a prestigious 2008 TELLY award for their soundtrack work as well as song placements on two internationally distributed “Guitar Masters” CDs (the only independent artists to “make the cut”), featuring legendary players like Carlos Santana, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Steve Vai and Yngwie Malmsteen, among many others.

Early in 2012, the brothers recast “The Flyin’ Ryan Brothers” with some friends old and new and are currently putting in motion their plans for world domination.
