Ryan DeSiato Band
Location & Contact:
With a repertoire of over 300 traditional and contemporary original songs as well as instrumentals, his live... performances unquestionably connect to his diverse audiences. Ryans superb melodies are backed by instrumental virtuosity on the acoustic & electric guitar among other stringed instruments.
Ryans progression as a songwriter was a step-by-step evolution from writing, performing, singing and producing a blend of different styles. His discography consists of 4 albums. 1997s I Am, 99s In the Land of the Deaf, 04s" EP 2004" and 2005s "Double Edged". In 2005, Ryan produced the award winning video from his single Make Believe. It was nominated and won 'Video of the Year' by the Austin Music Network. Over the course of his career, Ryan has performed both nationally and internationally.
Drawing on the influences of soul ancestors such as Howlin Wolf, Otis Redding and present soul folk singer Ray Lamontagne he has created an authentic vocal style all his own. In addition to collaborating with some of the finest musicians, Ryan is balancing his production on his two new albums with Grammy nominated Mark Hallman established in the industry for decades. Mark produced albums for many artists including Brandi Carlile and Eric Johnson.
Presently, Ryan is in the final stages of his most ambitious project to date. He has taken on the role of producer, singer, songwriter, and even engineer of two new albums. A completely produced modern rock album and the other, a solo acoustic album. Without a doubt the last few years have brought forth exponential artistic growth in all aspect of my abilities.
Driving him deeper into his artistic vision than any other project hes recorded before. Both projects have been a labor of love and a deep exploration into my capacity to find the core of each song crossing the boundaries of many styles. The rock album is a reflection of my musical influences ranging from modern hard rock to ballads and pop music. This socially conscious lyrical album speaks from a standpoint from where the world is now to future revelations. The lyrical substance feeds the soul to keep the music real...The acoustic record is a reflection for my love of both classical music and soulful folk.
From a vocal perspective, this album delves into the deeper side of Ryans rich Baritone. The album explores both his vocal talents and instrumental abilities with hints of technologically progressive productions. It is an exploration into what I know to be complete and authentically mine having recorded much of this record in my home studio...This album is intimately personal.
He is as timeless as tradition, as immediate as tomorrows headlines, and as essential as any artist who seeks to enlighten. Whether looking back or pushing forward, Ryan DeSiato follows no rules except the ones his music creates for Him.
