Country artist, and singer-songwriter Ryan Lindsay fell in love with music at age nine. “My grandfather gave me a CD of classic county songs and my first guitar. The moment I picked it up, I was hooked.” Having a music career became Ryan’s driving passion, and 90’s country artist icons inspired his sound. Ryan cut his teeth in live music fronting multiple country dance bands, and in 2016, he became a solo artist.
Kick-starting his career as a recording artist with his first single “Doin’ Alright”, entertaining an audience is still Ryan’s primary passion. Possessing a smooth country voice, engaging smile, and small-town charm, his music has those classic county undertones, complemented by his contagious energy and unique, modern touch. At shows, Ryan plays the classic hits that inspired him as well as his original songs.
Modern roots country artist, and singer-songwriter Ryan Lindsay fell in love with music at an early age. “My grandfather gave me a CD full of classic county songs and my first guitar when I was nine. From the moment I picked it up, I was hooked. There was something about the feel and sound of it that just sparked something inside me.”
When he sang his first song in front of people—Johnny Cash’s Ring of Fire—a few months later at a family reunion, that cinched the deal. Ryan began writing songs as well as playing them. Having a career in music turned into his driving passion, and 90’s country artist icons such as Vince Gill, Garth Brooks, and Alan Jackson became the inspiration for his sound.
An entertainer at heart, Ryan started out in the industry and paying his dues by performing anywhere and everywhere in venues of all sizes. He entertained small crowds on small stages in an acoustic duo while in high school. Played bars and weddings in a country band throughout University. And, in 2016, chose to strike out on his own to explore his opportunities as a solo artist. It’s proven to be the right career decision.
Ryan recently released his first single as a recording artist, “Doin’ Alright,” and is preparing for the recording of an EP. Still, the thrill of entertaining an audience remains his number one passion—whether it’s a solo, duo, trio, or full-band booking—your typical “coffee shop gig,” or more intimate settings, big concerts, fairs, or special events.
Possessing a smooth country voice, engaging smile, and down-home charm, Ryan’s music still has those familiar classic county undertones, complemented by his contagious energy and unique, modern touch. And, at his shows, he plays the classic hits that always have inspired him as well as original songs he’s written. “I add my own twist and musical style, but I never forget my classic country roots. I’m still hooked on the rawness of that 90’s country sound. There’s nothing like it—I’ll always carry that with me.”
