Bio

Born from blues and raised by rock, “Nasty ‘Nati” native Ryan Snyder is a force with a guitar. Ryan began his musical career at the age of 9 years old learning the piano and mastering the guitar. At 18, Ryan formed his band, Rio and The Ramblers, and headed the group as the lead guitarist. The “old-school” blues and grit group placed 2nd in the Madison Theater Band Challenge in Covington, KY and became very successful in the Cincinnati area. Keeping his roots, Ryan branched off from Rio and The Ramblers and ended up joining an alternative rock group called, The Borderline Something, which developed a loyal fan base around the Cincinnati and Kentucky circuit. Ryan’s experience on the road is extensive, as he has toured heavily, played hundreds of shows, and opened up rock n’ roll staples including, Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown. Currently, Ryan is Nashville based and undertaking his own solo project. Inspired by the shredding of Guns N Roses, Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, and AC/DC, Ryan’s music truly invokes the spirit of the rugged rocker inside each listener. Ryan’s ability to become one with his guitar is paranormal; heightened by his incorporation of the talk box, developing a fresh in-your-face twist to rock n’ roll. You can follow Ryan on his Facebook and Instagram at, Ryan Snyder Music. Ryan is set to release an EP on all major streaming platforms in Spring 2019.
