Joe Ryan is a musician/songwriter based out of South Florida, USA. The Lead Guitarist for the Tommy Dalton Band. Born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA. I started playing the guitar at the age of 10, and has it has been an obsession ever since. My first guitar was given to me by my father - who initially taught me my first chords. He and I would jam out in my earlier years which helped develop my skills.
Since then I have played many shows with original and cover bands along with the plethora of solo/duo acoustic gigs. Recently I have become focused on becoming more of a publishing artist. I am in the progress of writing songs for a few artists, along with trying to complete my debut album. I am working with Producer (musical master) Pete Masitti (Hootie and the Blowfish, Shakira, Julio Inglesias Jr.), and am eager to hear the final outcome, as well as share it with you all.
Music is a big part of my life. I could not imagine days passing without it. It is a gateway to hope, love, understanding, sanity, etc. There is no better way to express a feeling than through song. I have built quite a following behind me. Whether it come from impromptu jam sessions, the ability to play any song by ear/requested or from shows that Ive played along the East Coast. Every show I play...I give my all. And for those who know me know the facts....I am me, and nothing can replace that. My stage presence is something of its own.....
